Why is important?
Climate change and environmental degradation have become an existential and worldwide threat. As an increasing number of countries and organizations worldwide are setting dates to achieve a climate neutral economy scenario -capable of guaranteeing the well-being of present and future generations- great opportunities arise for supporting institutions and industries (i.e. energy, fashion, manufacturing, agriculture, transport) to make a better use of natural resources, reduce carbon emissions and shift from linear to circular economy models.
What are we looking for?
- New solutions to optimize and automatize energy storage, distributed generation and energy management.
- Green Energy Generation: renewable, waste-to-energy, fuel conversion, recycling materials from energy production plants.
- New Materials (based on recycled or bio-sourced raw materials) and materials regeneration.
- Advanced solutions to collect, measure and report carbon footprint within entire value chains in a transparent, accurate and reliable manner.
- Circular Supply Chain: transparency, traceability, reverse logistics.
- Goods & Packaging design based on zero-waste models & sustainable packaging solutions
- Collaboration platforms building the circular ecosystem (i.e. consumption awareness; water / waste /energy reduction; recycling; etc..).
