As innovators united by an urgent need for climate action, Exergenics is where we come together to work towards mitigating the impact of building cooling on the environment.
Controlling the climate within the environments where we live, play and work, shouldn’t come at the expense of our planet and communities.
Our mission is to close the gap between organisations and their net-zero goals by minimising the energy-intensity and environmental impact of building cooling systems.
In this Australian Geographic piece, our CEO Iain Stewart breaks down the urgent need to reach net-zero emissions in order to avoid the worst potential outcomes of climate change. The article states:
Australia has the means to become a regional leader in climate action, positioning ourselves as a “clean energy superpower” and helping our neighbours work towards becoming carbon-neutral.
With our ability to innovate, comes a great responsibility to align our efforts, resources, and policies with long-term, sustainable value creation that embraces the wider demands of people and planet.
Chilled water plants use on average 25% of a commercial building's energy. This comes with an unbearable cost to our climate, especially given that building cooling demand is projected to double by 2050.
Our software reduces the energy consumption of commercial air conditioning systems, indirectly reducing the emissions from fossil fuels used to generate electricity globally.
Beyond carbon abatement, our technology will help alleviate strain on electricity grids as the world transitions to renewable sources of energy.
The climate movement is a mutual cause that unites people from all walks of life, and we strive to capture the perspectives and abilities of people from as many racial, ethnic, gender, and cultural identities to solve the challenges that impact us all.
To harness the power of diversity and best serve the communities we belong to, we are committed to actively building an inclusive and equitable work culture through the following actions;
Maintaining an objective and transparent hiring process that provides equal opportunities to all applicants, and minimises the potential impact of unconscious, or systematic biases.
Collectively defining our company culture by the human values we share, to create an environment that ensures everyone is understood, supported, and empowered.
Developing policies and initiatives that contribute to employee health and well-being, with a focus on providing a safe space, and maintaining a healthy work-life balance.
The emissions reductions achieved through the implementation of our technology in client buildings does not diminish our responsibility to adhere to sustainable practices, it gives us the opportunity to make a greater contribution to the climate movement by enacting policies that ensure our strategies, operations, and procurement are environmentally friendly.
Our offices are on the lands of the Boon Wurrung and Wurundjeri peoples of the Kulin nation, the Traditional Custodians of the Country we are on, and we pay our respects to their elders past, present and emerging.
We recognise their continuing connection to the land and waters, and thank them for protecting the environment and its ecosystems since time immemorial.
