Planon acquires majority share in French PropTech firm

Sustainable building management software company, Planon, has acquired a majority share in Ubigreen.

Headquartered in Toulouse, France, Ubigreen is a PropTech company dedicated to energy performance and workspace optimisation. Planon’s investment in the company allows Ubigreen to benefit from an expert in the sector, accelerate its international expansion and strengthen its market position. With this partnership, Planon adds strategic capabilities to its Energy & Sustainability Management software offering and reinforces its ecosystem of digital solutions for smart sustainable building management.

Pierre Guelen, founder and CEO of Planon Group stated: “Around the world, companies of every size are facing the challenge to reduce the environmental impact of their buildings and deliver on the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals and net-zero carbon emission targets as recommended or required by authorities. For them, getting a solid handle on the resource consumption of their buildings is key to achieving these goals and moving confidently into a more sustainable future. Adding Ubigreen’s proven digital solutions to Planon’s existing Energy Management & Sustainability software solution will open up more opportunities for current and future customers to easily deploy energy consumption measurement and optimise their buildings’ energy performance.”

Pierre-Olivier Bessol, General Director of Ubigreen commented: “This is a great opportunity for us to join forces with Planon. We will be able to benefit from the expertise of a renowned international group to develop Ubigreen’s offers. With this alliance we aim to advance our shared objective on smart sustainable buildings to support our customers in this major transformation towards more eco-responsible real estate, at the service of its occupants.”

Julien Meriaudeau, President of Ubigreen added: “We are pleased to welcome Planon as majority shareholder in Ubigreen. This partnership with Planon will allow Ubigreen to expand its geographical reach and potential client base beyond its current position in the French market. Together, the two companies will provide a broad range of sustainability solutions to help clients accelerate the energy transition of their buildings and make them eco-responsible.”

2023 FMJ and Grundon Recycling and Waste Management Survey

FMJ in conjunction with Grundon Waste Management is pleased to launch the 2023 waste management and recycling survey which examines the ways in which FMs approach their waste management responsibilities.

In this, the sixth year for the annual appraisal, we know there is a greater opportunity than ever for FMs to reappraise their waste and recycling operations and help their organisations meet the growing pressure to achieve ESG goals.

We want to learn how FMs have adapted to the legislative, economic and societal changes of the past year and how they plan to meet the latest waste and recycling targets.

In this survey we’ve posed a series of questions which include insights into FMs’ waste management strategy and targets, how they’re moving towards zero waste targets, and the importance of not just meeting compliance targets but also ESG goals.

The results of the 2023 survey will be published in FMJ magazine and form the basis of a white paper co-written by FMJ and the experts at Grundon on how to approach waste and recycling strategies.
