In line with the Paris Agreement, the hotel industry needs to reduce its carbon emissions by 66% per room by 2030, and by 90% per room by 2050 to ensure that the growth forecast for the industry does not lead to a corresponding increase in carbon emissions (World Travel & Tourism Council).
In that regard, Kleverness offers a solution in which our clients can purchase high-quality patented products that contribute to accelerating the progress towards sustainable actions, such as energy efficiency, reducing carbon emissions, and implementing sustainable consumption and production patterns, among others.
As a company committed to sustainability, we respond to international recommendations that encourage taking advantage of the use of the Internet of Things (IoT) to accelerate the progress of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and maximize its potential for social value.
Our proposal mainly offers optimization in the operation of lighting and HVAC operations that will traduce in energy savings and other data based solutions.
At Kleverness we contribute to the following SDGs and their goals:
