NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--This week, Real Leaders® selected Animated Insights™ Inc. as a winner at its inaugural Eco Innovation Awards launch to its global community of social impact executives. This distinction celebrates achievement in environmental impact. As a longtime advocate for businesses that build sustainability into their business models, Real Leaders wanted to recognize the products, projects, and initiatives actively contributing to a healthier planet. Animated Insights™ Inc. is the leading provider of integrated building and energy intelligence solutions, including the AI: Twin 3D digital twin operating system and search engine platform, empowering building owners with real-time monitoring and control over efficiency, energy, and carbon emissions.
Entries were judged on creativity, innovation, originality, measurable impact and needed to be designed to help solve an environmental issue. Awards were given in three categories: Top 50 ranking, Ones to Watch, and Eco Innovation Allies.
“We are honored to see our important work recognized by Real Leaders in the company of fellow sustainability award winners,” says Luther Garcia, CEO of Animated Insights™. “The AI: Twin solution is quintessential to meeting New York City’s goal of reducing carbon emissions from the largest buildings by 2030. Our long-term focus on digitalizing buildings with our AI: Twin platform to maximize operational efficiency gains has been a huge part of achieving this award.”
The built environment is a major polluter of carbon emissions, responsible for 40% of global carbon (CO2) emissions and up to 70% in New York City. Animated Insights’ AI: Twin platform revolutionizes how owners of large and complex buildings can gain insight and control their resource consumption and carbon emissions. The challenge of digitalizing large and complex buildings is that they consist of a variety of disconnected and siloed data sources and user interfaces, including Building Management Systems (BMS), Energy analytics, HVAC Analytics, asset telemetry, Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), Work Orders, Asset Lifecycle Management, Space Management, Vertical Transport, & Fire & Security, etc. — each with different applications and interfaces to manage and use. The AI: Twin platform delivers a single, unified source of truth for all these functions, offering comprehensive insights into what is truly happening in a building — across all silos and systems. AI: Twin unlocks powerful insights that maximize efficiency, cost avoidance, sustainability, and foster improved tenant experiences.
“This is such a critical moment for our planet,” says Julie Van Ness, CEO of Real Leaders. “The latest IPCC report’s dire climate warning has made it clear there is no time to waste. It’s going to take all of us working together, especially business leaders who can leverage their influence and power in service to the planet. That’s why we dedicated our Q3 issue to business-led solutions for tackling the climate crisis; and we’re excited to introduce the world to our Eco Innovation Award-winning companies and CEOs who are doing just that. This issue is a must-read for purpose-driven leaders who want to be a part of the solution.”
