Acuity Brands Partners with Microsoft to Enable Sustainable Building Solutions

Atlanta, GA, Jan. 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Acuity Brands, Inc. (NYSE: AYI), a market-leading industrial technology company, today announced it is expanding its collaboration with Microsoft to bring new capabilities to Acuity Brands smart lighting, lighting controls, and building automation solutions. 

Acuity Brands has a bold goal to avoid 100m metric tons of carbon emissions as a result of projected 2020-2030 sales of LED luminaires, lighting controls, and building management systems replacing older technologies in existing buildings.  By combining the power of Microsoft’s Cloud for Sustainability and Microsoft Azure IoT with Acuity Brands customer solutions, Acuity Brands and Microsoft will jointly enable end customers, operating many types of facilities and buildings, to forecast and calculate the environmental and financial impacts that these new lighting and building management technologies deliver.  

“We estimate that building operations contribute 28% of global carbon emissions. By developing, deploying, and operating building systems with a focus on sustainability, we can materially reduce energy usage from facilities,” said Neil Ashe, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Acuity Brands. “Together with Microsoft, our goal is to integrate foundational technologies like Microsoft Azure IoT and AI with Acuity Brands solutions that allow companies to reduce carbon emissions while saving money on operating expenses.” 

Acuity Brands provides industry-leading lighting and lighting controls technology.  The company’s nLight digital lighting controls platform, the Compact Pro  High Bay by Lithonia Lighting , and its other lighting and lighting controls offerings are currently deployed across 15 billion square feet of commercial real estate, including office space, retail stores, hospitals, and airports.  Additionally, the Acuity Brands smart building and energy management portfolio includes the ECLYPSE  line of edge controllers by Distech Controls to automate building functions and energy management services such as the Atrius Building Manager.
