  • Protect the destinations your business relies on
  • Attract customers by showing you’re committed to environmental protection

Did you know…

  • The average carbon footprint per person in the UK, per year, is 12.7 tonnes CO2e.1
  • 1 tree makes 16.67 reams of paper, or 1 ream = 6% of one tree.2
  • 1 tree can typically trap 3.7 tonnes of carbon dioxide during its 40-year lifetime.3


An average printed set of O&Ms is 15 manuals or roughly half a tree and 1.85 tonnes of carbon dioxide not getting trapped.

COGNICA’s paperless solutions are helping our Customers to reduce their Carbon footprint.

Data Management Systems

With the technological advancements in today's working practices, it is more and more apparent how redundant paper copies or inflexible digital copies of handover documentation are managed. In line with BIM level 3 practices and beginning a Lifecycle management journey, having a readily available real time solution which can be updated by stakeholders at any time is the preferred path to take. COGNICA offers multiple solutions working within customer document management systems or consulting to design & build a solution for them that best fits the business.

Reality Capture Technology

COGNICA’s Insite360 reality capture service can provide a full, immersive virtual walkthrough of your site or building from your browser, allowing you to view and manage your site remotely. Delivering 360° panorama images than can be navigated in a 3D space, as well as a fully coloured 3D point cloud that can be used for centimetre-accurate measurements, key decision makers are given the tools to enable virtual site exploration and planning without physically travelling to site, helping reduce the carbon footprint of your business.
