KEO, a leading provider of multi-disciplinary consultancy services, and Johnson Controls, the global leader in smart, healthy, and sustainable buildings, have recently announced a strategic collaboration focussed at delivering turnkey decarbonization services in the region.

Under the partnership, the two firms will be ready to offer an end-to-end decarbonization action plan and a suite of engineered solutions to drive cost and carbon reductions. These will aid the organizations in accomplishing their net zero goals including comprehensive target setting and offering a roadmap, to produce tangible outcomes.

Industry sources added that according to the World Green Building Council, buildings are responsible for nearly 40% of global carbon emissions and buildings display one of the fastest—if not the fastest—paths to meeting global climate targets. With the UAE and Saudi Arabia triggering (one of) the world’s most ambitious decarbonization programs, organizations in the region will benefit from such collaborations to more quickly and effectively meet the region’s goals.
