🌎 🌿 As we anticipate the upcoming COP28, it’s clear that digital innovation will be pivotal in advancing our global fight against climate change. At ETF Partners, we’ve spent the past 17 years championing digital technologies that can have a large positive impact on the climate – and fast.
Our portfolio companies are at the forefront of these innovations. DeepSea Technologies uses AI to decarbonise the shipping industry, while Open Cosmos employs satellite technology to provide data and insights into sectors like agriculture. Zeelo is helping organisations provide effective, route-optimised bussing services, reducing individual car usage. Phenix tackles food waste by providing a platform for businesses to better manage waste and support vulnerable communities. And Fairly Made® is confronting the complex issue of supply chains in fashion, enabling companies to trace the history of their items and create a greener impact.
These are just a few examples of how digital technology can add an intelligence layer to climate-focused solutions, allowing necessary innovations to scale at pace. While COP28 is an indispensable platform to encourage this shift, it is just one step in a long journey.
We believe in the power of targeted investment and the acceleration of digital innovation to make a difference in the fight against the climate crisis. The technology we need is in our grasp, but there is no room for complacency.
