Every business is deeply intertwined with environmental, social, and governance (ESG) concerns, none more so than those who occupy and own real estate given that buildings contribute 40% of global Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions.
Novo is committed to helping clients with their own ESG journey, irrespective of where they may be on that path.
We help companies measure, understand and address their current environmental impact.
We co-create and deliver ESG Solutions to help clients achieve their ESG goals.
Each company’s circumstances and requirements are unique, and that is why we tailor our solutions to meet your specific needs.
With our in-house experts and leveraging our Open Innovation Platform partners we offer end-to-end ESG services including:

The Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia Quality Assurance Programs (RCPAQAP) are world leaders in the provision of external quality assurance (EQA) for pathology laboratories.
We were appointed by RCPAQAP to assist them in determining their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions baseline and co-create a net zero emissions reduction strategy and roadmap.
Through our co-creation process we partnered with the client to develop a staged approach to helping them first reach carbon neutrality by 2025 and thereon helping them achieve Net Zero status.
Our approach included taking into consideration initiatives RCPAQAP had already undertaken and augmenting them with new strategies to help them first measure their carbon footprint in real time leveraging sensor technology and achieving RESET Indoor Air Quality Certification. We will help them measure their Scope 1, 2 & 3 emissions leveraging technology, purchase carbon offsets, up-skill their employees and help RCPAQAP communicate effectively with their stakeholders on their Net Zero journey progress and results.
Novo has installed data sensors to capture RCPAQAP’s Electricity, Water usage and Air Quality data in real time.
In addition to real time monitoring of electricity & water usage to inform their baseline carbon footprint, the data will help RCPAQAP take corrective actions in real time to help reduce their energy and water usage.
We are also helping RCPAQAP achieve RESET certification to provide greater transparency on the performance of its workplace and laboratories.
