Abu Dhabi, February 8, 2012
Abu Dhabi-based Masdar City said it has selected PE International's SoFi system to monitor carbon embodied in buildings for its ambitious project to construct one of the world’s most sustainable cities.
Masdar City is one of the integrated units of Abu Dhabi’s multi-faceted renewable energy company Masdar, has captured enormous worldwide interest by demonstrating how sustainable cities can be developed.
Commenting on the use of SoFi, Alan Frost, director of Masdar City, said: 'Through SoFi we can monitor carbon performance during construction and quantify how well we are meeting our goals.'
'This is vital for Masdar and our stakeholders in terms of validating our ambition of building one of the most sustainable cities in the world,' he noted.
'The system is playing a key role in helping Masdar’s supply chain team and contractors track and monitor the carbon embodiment of building materials thereby calculating the amount of carbon associated with construction activities,' Frost added.
SoFi is PE International's high performance tool that provides a central platform for benchmarking and forecasting sustainability performance and developing sustainability strategies.
Neil D’Souza, SoFi product manager at PE International, said, 'It is an honour to be supporting Masdar in this illustrious project, which sets a high standard for the region as a whole, helping Abu Dhabi to become a centre of excellence in the next generation of renewable and green technologies.'
