Step 2. We provide...

Here's a sneak peak at the a wide range of resources we provide to get you started on the CUBE journey and throughout the competition

AI-backed Platform

The candidate platform is used to enter your building data (both historical and current) and track your progress against other participants. It takes into account extreme weather days and occupancy levels to create a baseline against which your building will be measured.  You can view your progress and can always see your own ranking and others performance.

Candidate kit

Access technical building checklists, management guide, occupier-facing lunch and learn templates, stickers, and ready-to-go econudge posters to help kick off the initiative

Step 3. You make the impact!

Use our resources and apply to your context while leveraging the CUBE community to transform your building


Form Green Teams

CUBE provides guidelines and insight in how to create the most effective green teams. The goal is to form a cross-functional team of occupiers that can work alongside building managers. Use monthly rankings and quarterly meetings as an opportunity to bring green teams together and drive action for the following months.

Lead a building walkthrough

Once established, the first step is often for building managers to do a building walk-through with the green teams and wider set of occupiers so that both sides understand how things work to feed into an action plan.

3. You make an Impact.jpg

Chart an action plan

Green teams define an action plan with initiatives to test, including how to communicate more widely across the building. Eco-nudge posters, technical checklists, and management guide provided help speed up this process.

Communicate initiatives

It is important to ensure the entire building is aware they are participating in the competition, even while you are still developing an action plan. Try running an Awareness Day in the lobby. What other creative events could work for your building? Have fun with it!

Throughout the year...

We organise a number of meetings and events throughout the year to drive collaboration and keep the momentum going!
