When surveyed, only 10% of British firms claimed to have a set carbon reduction target.

NORTHAMPTON, UK (1st July 2019)

True Occupancy has engaged the consultancy services of Simon Carter of Anticus Consulting. Simon will work with the True Occupancy team to bring their occupancy analytics solution for smart buildings to the rapidly growing UK and US markets.
