CEO’s Annual Note: On To 2017
Dear Friends and Measurabl Subscribers,
2016 was a remarkable year thanks to the many companies subscribed to our platform. We’d like to extend our thanks, share reflections on this past year, and look forward as we begin a new one.
Measurabl was born because the cost and complexity of meeting sustainability obligations had become overwhelming. Our industry of real estate and, more broadly, the built environment lacked a simple, accurate way to measure, manage, and act on sustainability imperatives, leaving it hard pressed to deliver the economic, environmental, and social dividends of which it is capable.
As 2017 begins, there is mounting evidence our mission is achievable: 19,000 Buildings representing 3.5 Billion Square Feet and $900 Billion in Asset Value run or are in process of deploying Measurabl. Here’s a few other hallmarks of progress:
23%: By asset value, of World’s Top 100 Investment Managers
60%: By asset value, of North American GRESB reporters
4: Proprietary regression models to benchmark and score building performance
1: US Trademark approved for Investment Grade Certification of sustainability reports
It is an honor to be entrusted with your business and collaborate on your projects. We consider it a reflection of the aspirations we mutually hold to improve our industry’s sustainability performance.
With this in mind, we are keenly aware of the responsibility to leverage our scale towards something truly valuable to us all. In 2016, we delivered many new features:
- Portfolio and Building-level dashboards with customizable layouts
- On-demand, up to minute exports of GRESB and CDP
- Data Quality, Asset- and Portfolio-level KPI reports
- Automated data validation, error detection, and notifications
- Integrations completed or underway with MRI, Yardi, and USGBC
This output will increase in 2017: new reports, new integrations, and entirely new capabilities are forthcoming in our pursuit of giving you a clear competitive advantage in operational efficiency, raising capital, and brand differentiation.
Progress is not made with code alone. We’ve been working with innovative companies, cities, and institutions across the built environment. Expect these strategic relationships to return extra value in the form of best practices, investment grade benchmarking, and new ways to identify and implement energy efficiency projects.
The results of 2016 leave us confident our mission is achievable. The expanse of 2017 makes clear it is far from complete. To go the distance, Measurabl needs you: your ambitions, daily challenges, and insights are what we craft into software. Keep the feedback coming and we'll keep helping you measure what matters.
