KEO and Johnson Controls collaborate to spearhead decarbonisation drive in the region

Strategic collaboration will help organizations achieve their sustainability goals

KUWAIT: KEO, a leading provider of multi-disciplinary consultancy services, and Johnson Controls, the global leader in smart, healthy and sustainable buildings, have on Sunday announced a strategic collaboration aimed at delivering turnkey decarbonization services in the region.

Under the collaboration, the two companies will offer an end-to-end decarbonization action plan and a suite of engineered solutions to drive cost and carbon reductions. These will help organizations achieve their net zero goals including comprehensive target setting, providing a roadmap, to produce tangible outcomes. According to the World Green Building Council, buildings are responsible for nearly 40 percent of global carbon emissions and buildings represent one of the fastest — if not the fastest — paths to meeting global climate targets.

With the UAE and Saudi Arabia spearheading (one of) the world’s most ambitious decarbonization programs, organizations in the region will benefit from such collaborations to more quickly and effectively meet the region’s goals. Founded on a shared vision and complementary expertise, this unique collaboration draws on KEO’s 60 years of expertise in engineering, consultation, and advisory services and Johnson Controls 140 years transforming the built environment to reduce energy consumption and emissions, improve building efficiency, increase productivity and wellbeing, and ultimately contribute to a greener and more sustainable future.
