Globe implements intelligent monitoring systems for energy efficiency and climate action
Apr 5, 2023
Leading digital solutions platform Globe has maintained its score of B in the 2022 CDP (formerly Carbon Disclosure Project) assessment, demonstrating its steadfast commitment to climate action and sustainable business practices.
Achieving a score of B indicates that a company is able to provide evidence of its environmental management processes in addressing relevant risks in its operations and in reducing the company’s impact to the environment. Globe regularly discloses its environmental impact and mitigation strategies through CDP, bringing in tangible business benefits.
"We are committed to driving energy efficiency in our operations and reducing our carbon footprint through various programs and initiatives. The implementation of intelligent monitoring systems is an important part of this effort, and we are pleased to see the positive impact that they bring to our business and the planet,” said Gerard Ortines, Head of Network Solutions and CAPEX Management at Globe.
Environment, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) ratings have become a standard assessment tool used by investors to measure a company's sustainability performance, on top of its financial performance. Acquiring good ESG ratings indicates that ESG-linked risks of the company are being managed, which improves investor confidence and overall brand value for customers.
One key aspect of Globe's climate action strategy is the implementation of intelligent monitoring systems to support energy efficiency efforts. By increasing energy efficiency and optimising the network’s capabilities, energy requirements are reduced, which means a reduction in carbon emissions from electricity consumption.
Aligned with its ISO 50001-certified Energy Management System and energy efficiency programs, Globe has deployed a range of advanced technologies across its facilities, including a Remote Monitoring System (RMS) for its cell sites and a computerised maintenance management system (CMMS) in its core facilities.
The RMS allows for the remote monitoring and control of on-site equipment and energy usage on a 24/7 basis, enabling Globe to drive operational energy efficiency. The system also reduces the need for manual on-site monitoring, effectively reducing emissions from vehicle fuel consumption.
The CMMS, meanwhile, is an online digital hub converging the company’s core network operations and processes into one central platform - a shared yet single source of truth (SSOT). It provides synergies of the relevant inventories, reports, and analytics necessary to gain better and more conclusive operational performance and service insights.
Additionally, Globe implements Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) to automate the monitoring of energy consumption and improve datacentre design. The system provides real-time monitoring of temperature and humidity conditions, as well as AC and DC power readings, allowing for efficient and automated monitoring of facility data.
Globe continues to look for innovative technology and solutions to support its climate action goals. It is a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact and has made several global commitments, including a pledge to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 50% by 2030 and achieve net zero by 2050.
