Let’s Conquer Your ESG Goals, Together

Our machine-learning platform provides the fastest, easiest, and most cost-effective path to decarbonizing your office building. Empower your buildings’ engineers with the real-time, asset-specific recommendations needed to optimize your building operations, conquer your sustainability goals, and build a better future for all.

Fastest Way to Meet ESG Goals

Climate change is not slowing down, and there is no time to waste. Our platform uses data from your buildings’ existing systems so you can start reducing carbon and energy usage immediately.

Reduce the #1 Source of Carbon Emissions

Commercial real estate accounts for 28% of all carbon emissions – that’s more than the auto industry! But, together, we can reduce our carbon footprint. We already reduce 22.5K tons of CO2 each year for our clients. 

The Solution ESG Experts Trust

As passionate environmentalists, we’ve optimized the operations of more than 600 buildings for nearly 100 portfolio owners.

Join Our Mission

From data processed by your BMS to hyper-local weather insight and more, we use thousands of data points your buildings are already collecting to optimize your operations, leading to a significant reduction of carbon emissions and operating costs. When you work with our machine-learning platform, you’ll also eliminate the need to invest in new equipment to reach your ESG goals and increase your asset value. Find out how we can help you reach your goals through a free custom plan for your portfolio today.

Establish Yourself as a Leader in CRE Sustainability

Investors and regulations are already increasing their expectations for commercial real estate leaders to reduce their carbon impact and have a sustainability plan. Our platform helps you stay ahead of expectations and become a leader of your industry.

Your First Steps to Decarbonization

There’s no need to invest in new equipment to reach your ESG goals. With no capital spend and immediate operational savings, everyone can agree on Cortex. When you use our platform, we use data your building is already collecting to help optimize operations — no capital investments required.

Our Cortex Community

Approximately 95% of Cortex clients believe in our mission and recognize the value of our platform – and renew their subscription year after year.

The Cortex installation and customer success teams did a flawless job getting the system up and running in one of the most demanding environments in the industry. Early results are both positive and promising.

Paul Rode Head of US Engineering at Tishman Speyer

Not only have we found Cortex to be extremely cost effective, but its environmental and sustainability benefits are also shockingly large. Having Cortex in place at our properties certainly gives us a valuable jump start as far as the steps we need to take to meet the new emissions requirements in New York.

Nick Bienstock Savana

Cortex is poised to change the game for commercial building operators and the climate industry in general. I could not be more proud or excited to be supporting the Cortex team in that journey.

Dan Malven 4490 Ventures Managing Director

Building Analytics capabilities like Cortex are a powerful complement to broader sustainability strategies. The software provides immediate efficiency gains by helping engineers more precisely manage existing equipment and provides actionable insights that are very easy for building engineers to implement, resulting in measurable savings.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will Cortex Help Our Assets Comply with ESG Regulations and Avoid Fines?

Yes! We know that carbon reduction regulations are already in place for some commercial buildings, with many more soon to fall under these limits. Additionally, we support state and local incentive programs (where available) to help offset the costs to reduce carbon emissions. Our platform is also unique in our accessible digital reporting. When you use Cortex, you will always have access to reporting information that allows you to track ESG improvements, energy usage peaks, and overall savings at the touch of your fingers.

How Can I Prove or Show ESG Improvements to My Investors?

Cortex provides automated usage, cost, and energy savings reports to users each month, as well as executive summary reports to visualize your savings over time. These reports are accessible in the Cortex dashboard anytime, and your dedicated customer success team will schedule time at your convenience to review results with you personally on a regular basis.

We also pride ourselves on the personalized experience our dedicated customer success team, led by industry expert and experienced engineer Don Kasper, provides our customers. If your success is dependent upon tracking certain metrics or working within specific reporting, we’ll work with you closely to develop a plan custom to the results you need to show. Either way, we’ve got you covered.

Do We Need to Purchase Additional Sensors or Replace Any of Our Existing HVAC Equipment?

No, there is no requirement to upgrade your equipment and no need to invest in any additional sensors. We have spent nearly a decade building a platform that learns the intricacies of your existing equipment in order to empower your engineers with the insight and recommendations they need to get the most out of the equipment you already have. This means no disrupting operations, and no huge capital investments for new equipment, hardware, or sensors required

How Soon Do I Start Seeing Payback on My Investment in Cortex?

Because we use your existing equipment and data, you should start seeing results as soon as the system is set up, usually within three- to six- months. Most customers report that their savings are twice their fees in year one, and five times their fees by year three.

Do you track GRESB score improvements?

While GRESB is not something incorporated directly into the Cortex platform at this time, we pride ourselves on the personalized experience our dedicated customer success team, led by industry expert and experienced engineer Don Kasper, provides our customers. If your success is dependent upon tracking certain metrics or working within specific reporting, we’ll work with you closely to develop a plan custom to the results you need to show. Either way, we’ve got you covered.
