MVGM and Rhino Join Forces to Decarbonise the built environment with real-time utility data

Amsterdam, June 5, 2024 – MVGM, a leading European property management company, and Rhino, a global leader in utility data management, are excited to announce their strategic partnership to decarbonise commercial and residential real estate. With the partnership, MVGM will leverage Rhino’s advanced real-time utility data technology that will enable it to further support its clients in achieving their Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) goals, Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) and Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) compliance.

Anne Brom, European Commercial Manager bij MVGM said, “We are excited to partner with Rhino to bring advanced usage data solutions to our clients. This partnership reinforces our commitment to sustainability and gives our clients the tools they need in the landscape of regulations.”

Rishi Lodhia, Chairman of the Board Rhino, added, “Our partnership with MVGM marks a significant step toward making the decarbonisation of the real estate industry mainstream. Together, we enable real estate investors to make informed decisions that are both economically and environmentally beneficial.”

With increasing regulations and market demand for transparency in sustainability, the collaboration between MVGM and Rhino comes at a critical time.
