Sustainability Factor: Commodity value for sustainable derivatives

sustainable-derivatives

The architecture, engineering and construction industry (AEC) is the facilitator of large and complex industrial plants, multi-industry international exposition centers, residential centers and other types of complex and simple building or structure. It’s size is relative unknown, but estimated to be around £5.1tr in UK.

AEC software on the other side, it improves the efficiency of construction and engineering processes by providing two-dimensional as well as three-dimensional simulation models to end-users for analysis.

The analysts forecast the Global AEC market will grow at a CAGR of 7.84 percent over the period 2013-2018.

Deloitte published recently the average transaction per square meter which indicates that we have sufficient backbones to supplement the AEC with a Sustainability Factor (SF).

The SF is harvested from the supplier’s product description using our architectural resourcing system www.homepod.eu

Our vision is to make Homepod an underlying entity, from which the SF can used as a derivative for owner’s sustainable assets.

Commodities such as plastic, wood, ceramic, glass, steel, fabrics from the SF can will be traded through the EURONEXT and CME.

Today, the company is harvesting BIGDATA to monetise the sustainable value of products which our users collect when buying architectural resources. These points will be available for trade when the SU is released.

What happens if the Sustainability Factor crashes?

As we can see in the big financial crises of the 21st century, there is a likelihood that the price of the SF can change its monetary value, but an actual SF crash isn’t likely to happen unless buildings disappear overnight without trace.

SU is the sustainability value embodied in one building or structure. This sustainable value stays with the building and some of the components in the building can be upcycled, which can also increase the SF price over time (if that component is actually sold to upcycle).

This can give room for speculators and estimators to trade on the SF price based on AEC value and growth rates over time.
