The partnership will enable the health and social care sector to reduce its carbon footprint, save energy costs, and improve resident well-being

Utopi, the ESG technology specialist, has joined forces with Delphi Care Solutions to transform the health and social care sector, enabling it to drive sustainability, reduce energy costs, and improve resident well being.

Bringing together Utopi’s ESG data capabilities and Delphi Care’s unrivalled sector-specific knowledge and predictive analytics potential, the strategic alliance is set to drive sustainable improvements and deliver unparalleled value to organisations operating within the health and social care industry.

The collaboration will provide the industry with an opportunity to tackle the cost of living crisis and reduce energy wastage, providing organisations with improved benchmarking, measurement capabilities, and real-time insights that can help reduce their energy consumption by 20%. Both companies will also address the wider challenges facing the health and social care sector related to talent acquisition and retention, digital transformation, access to funding, and operational efficiency.

Ben Roberts, Co-Founder and Chief Growth Officer at Utopi says, “Our partnership will create a unique synergy, offering the industry a comprehensive solution to improve their operational and sustainability performance.

“By combining Utopi’s comprehensive ESG data collection capabilities with the predictive analytics and financial forecasting features of Delphi’s VISION platform, we aim to create an even more robust and valuable solution for customers. This will enhance the decision-making process for organisations, investors and other stakeholders, providing them with a holistic view of their environmental, social, and financial performance.”

The industry is experiencing an increase in the rollout of off-site inspections and remote monitoring by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the independent regulator of health and adult social care in England. Delphi Care Solutions has a multidisciplinary team of former-CQC inspectors, commissioners, policy writers, SI investigators and experienced crisis management and turnaround consultants, giving them a deep understanding of the sector’s intricacies and challenges.

The Utopi-Delphi Care joint solution will empower organisations to boost their CQC ratings and achieve net zero goals, allowing them to monitor their ongoing environmental performance in real-time.

“Moving into the health and social care sector has been a natural progression for Utopi, and having the expertise of Delphi alongside us will be a great asset to our expansion. Currently, our ESG platform is in over 22,000 beds across the UK, Ireland and Europe; and we’re thrilled to see it bolster the ESG capabilities of the health and social care sector and help the industry move towards Net Zero,” adds Roberts.

Helen Cooper, Director at Delphi Care Solutions comments, “It is crucial to us to work with organisations whose values align with ours. We felt a strong sense of shared values with Utopi from the very beginning.

“Utopi is committed to reducing the carbon footprint within the sector. This partnership will open exciting possibilities for joint product development and innovation to drive positive change. We are excited to work with Utopi on this ground-breaking project and share Utopi’s state-of-the-art solutions with our existing clients and the wider sector.”

The partnership comes following a £5 million investment that Utopi received earlier this year from the Scottish National Investment Bank to scale up and target new global markets. Utopi is now in a high-growth phase as it looks to expand to the US market, secure strategic partnerships and customers, and grow its team across the UK and abroad.
