Innovation Partner: myglobalghome


MyGlobalHome’s sustainable property platform PropCode, provides the essential ESG data allowing lenders and property owners to measure, report and improve the carbon impact within the built environment in the drive towards net-zero.

The Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard (MEES) requires landlords to ensure that by 2025 all newly rented properties reach an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of C or above. A recent study showed 58% of UK housing stock had an EPC rating of D and below.

PropCode provides the necessary intelligence to certify ESG accreditation on both new and existing buildings, in real-time throughout their lifetime. Certified ESG data allows owners and lenders to streamline the complex ESG data reporting requirements, increasing the flow of impact capital into the built environment.

MyGlobalHome in partnership with Beckhoff are standing for net zero housing at Futurebuild 2023. Come and visit us at stand P46.
