GridPoint’s efforts toward decarbonization honored with the Sustainability Leadership Award
RESTON, Va. – October 5, 2022 – GridPoint, a leader in building energy management and optimization technology that decarbonizes commercial buildings and drives grid modernization, announced today that it received the Sustainability Leadership Award from the 2022 Business Intelligence Group Sustainability Awards. The awards program honors companies that prioritize sustainability as an integral part of their business practice and GridPoint received this recognition for transforming the way businesses use energy to reduce carbon emissions and drive a more sustainable future.
“GridPoint’s mission is to accelerate the world’s transition to a sustainable energy future, and it’s an honor to have our hard work recognized by the Business Intelligence Group,” said Mark Danzenbaker, CEO of GridPoint. “We are committed to decarbonizing commercial buildings and will continue to expand our efforts to help customers achieve their ESG and sustainability goals.”
Buildings represent the greatest, most cost-effective opportunity to reduce carbon and ensure a sustainable energy future and according to the EIA, over 90% of commercial buildings in the U.S. are under 50,000 square feet. GridPoint is using this largely untapped market of businesses operating these buildings as an advantage to make significant advances in efficiency and decarbonization by reducing energy consumption and creating a network of grid-interactive efficient buildings (GEBs). To date, GridPoint has saved its customers nearly $800M dollars in energy costs and reduced nearly 10.1B lbs. of CO2e.
The Business Intelligence Group is a world-renowned organization that has recognized executives and organizations of all sizes for their innovation, creativity, and persistence. “We are proud to reward and recognize GridPoint for their sustainability efforts,” said Maria Jimenez, chief nominations officer, Business Intelligence Group. “It was clear to our judges that their vision and strategy will continue to deliver results toward a cleaner, more sustainable world. Congratulations!”
