Half of the solution to the climate crisis  

An energy conversion from fossile fuels will not be sufficient – the conversion into a more circular economy will be as important as the energy conversion to save the climate.

Ellen Macarthur Foundation has estimated that a circular conversion can remedy 45 % of the worlds climate emissions.

Material Economics assessment of the circular conversion is even higher, as they estimate that 60-70% of the worlds climate emissions can be remedied from a circular economy.

That’s why we say that a circular economy is half of the solution to the climate crisis. The problem is how efficient we will be able to circulate what’s been produced – a probleme we offer a solution to.

”The next 1,000 unicorns won’t be search engines or social media companies, they’ll be sustainable, scalable innovators – startups that help the world decarbonize and make the energy transition affordable for all consumers.”
