Corporate sustainability, the only viable way for a promising future
Corporate sustainability is, for Brisa, the only way that gives the planet the opportunity to renew and recover. It is the only way that allows a safe journey for generations to come. And the Brisa Group has opted for this path for a long time. Mainly with regard to the projects and construction of motorways and their operation and maintenance.
More recently, the Brisa Group opted to gain even more speed in the path of its corporate sustainability. It became more demanding and committed to the environmental results achieved. It was for this, including new themes and criteria, until arriving at the system that it adopts today, which has as objective the eco-efficiency of the operations and its support activities. The results obtained so far have allowed it to be ranked in the GRESB 2020 ranking as the most sustainable infrastructure operator in Europe and second in the world. It is worth knowing better the goals achieved by BRISA along its journey towards its corporate sustainability.
Corporate water sustainability
The telemetry system developed by JANZ is the partner chosen by Brisa to accompany it on this journey towards the sustainability of the planet, in terms of water efficiency. As a simple and scalable technology, MYWATER is helping Brisa to preserve one of the most important resources on the planet: drinking water. This at a time when the most harmful effects of climate change are already impossible to ignore. At the end of 2020, Brisa decided to equip all its water meters with MYWATER radio modules, having adopted the Narrow Band – Internet of Things communication technology(NB-IoT). Thus, by sending readings and alarms, Brisa has at its disposal a valuable source of information, which allows it to know and resolve its apparent and real water losses, as well as carrying out the water balances of its supply system, thus placing the company on the path of corporate sustainability.
MYWATER is the innovative Telemetry solution based on modern LPWA (Low Power Wide Area) networks. This is a state-of-the-art fixed and bidirectional telemetry solution, aimed at companies and water distributors, which allows interaction without human intervention, with equipment and information systems for an efficient management of monitoring residential commercial and industrial water consumption, public or private.
MYWATER, to renew the collective mindset
In addition to effective and efficient management of water supply systems by the Managing Entities, the preservation of this resource requires a profound transformation of the mentalities of those who consume it, that is, of all of us. The challenge is not an easy one, as it never is when it comes to changing habits. By allowing Management Utilities to send information to the end customer about their consumption and events, which go far beyond the monthly water bill, MYWATER can be used as an important motivational tool to generate anew collective mindset. Permanent and real-time information on individual water consumption by the common consumer allows him to monitor the impact on their consumption habits in the monthly bill, modifying them to save money and water and, therefore, also the planet.
MYWATER promises to give the planet the opportunity to recover and renew its resources.
