Infrastructure planning for smart buildings is vital and requires a complete understanding of various Ethernet-based technologies , including POE and IoT , all the way to the application level . There is no one-size-fits-all solution that will work for every system . Network designers , electrical engineers , cabling installers , IT managers , facility managers and endusers must weigh the pros and cons of these options . Leviton has many solutions designed to support digital buildings .
With data centres and smart buildings comes sustainability . Can you tell us more about Leviton ’ s policy in terms of sustainability ?
Our policy covers a range of areas . We are the UK ’ s first carbon-neutral factory for more than a decade now in accordance with PAS2060 . We have a new chief sustainability officer aiming to drive further carbon-neutral and green initiatives . Our converted facilities incorporate LED lighting and energysaving sensors .
The sustainability policy also focuses on reducing packaging waste and we have introduced new green packs / bulk packs on most of the products .
