Symetri launches Naviate Zero: An innovative technology transforming sustainable building design

London, United Kingdom, February 20th, 2024

Addressing the urgent need for reduced embodied carbon and CO2 emissions, Naviate Zero empowers designers and engineers to calculate emissions, make informed, eco-conscious decisions directly within the Revit platform and use the data in full Lifecycle Assessments.

The building industry currently contributes to 39% of annual CO2 emissions, with embodied carbon accounting for 11% of global annual emissions. In response to this environmental challenge, Naviate Zero seeks to mitigate the impact by focusing on the early stages of a building's life cycle. By emphasizing the importance of design and material selection, Naviate Zero enables architects to make choices that have immediate and lasting environmental benefits.

Mikko Viertola, the CTO of Symetri, emphasizes the company's dedication to making positive environmental contributions. He states:

"At Symetri, our purpose is to inspire and enable people to work smarter for a better future. Acknowledging the environmental impact within our clients' industries, we recognized the responsibility and identified an opportunity to make a positive contribution. The vision evolved to empower individuals to make well-informed, sustainably responsible decisions and has materialized now through Naviate Zero, a platform that integrates reliable data to facilitate informed decision-making in sustainable design and construction."

Viertola further explains,

"One of the key challenges lies in making data accessible and intuitive, allowing informed decision-making without individuals feeling overwhelmed. After all, the ability to make informed decisions is crucial for achieving better outcomes."

Naviate Zero leverages Symetri’s strategic partnership with One Click LCA, the global leading platform for lifecycle assessment, environmental product declaration, and sustainability. By utilizing One Click LCA's extensive databases, Naviate Zero provides architects and designers direct access to global building material data, elevating the standards of sustainability in the building industry.
