Impact Objectives
Increasing renewable energy capacity
Improving energy and resource use efficiency
Improving the sustainable management and use of natural resources
Theory of change
Problem
Resource scarcity, global carbon emission and per capita waste levels are rising on an unprecedented scale (UN, 2020)
Solution
Decarbonizaton and more effective use of the world’s energy sources and natural resources
Transition to renewable energy
Circular use of resources with a focus on innovative and sustainable waste management
Outcomes
Reduced carbon emissions of energy generation and use
Increased energy efficiency rate
Increased circular use of materials and resources leading to reduced pressure on and need for virgin materials and finite resources
Business model
Renewable energy development platforms and businesses promoting energy efficiency at scale
Innovative waste management and recycling companies
Providers of specialist services that facilitate sustainable management of natural resources
Main SDGs and targets
7.2 increase share of renewable energy
7.3 improve energy efficiency
11.6 promote waste management
Additional SDGs
Impact Objectives
Increasing food security
Improving efficiencies and sustainability and reducing food waste in agriculture supply chains
Improving farming practices and promote sustainable agriculture
Theory of change
Problem
By 2030, we need to feed 2 billion people more, plus the821 million currently not having enough to eat (UN, 2020)
Solution
Disruptive, scalable and sustainable farming models
Innovative tools and technology to reduce inputs, emissions, waste and inefficiencies in food production and supply chains
Disintermediaton of the agricultual supply chain
Outcomes
Higher efficiency and outputs in food production with lower carbon footprint
Reduced food waste in the agricultural supply chain
Improved farming practices, access to markets and increased income for smallholder farmers
Business model
Sustainable farming models with large scaling potential
Agriculture supply chain companies that leverage technology to improve efficiencies
Post-harvest services companies
Main SDGs and targets
2.3 increase agricultural productivity
2.4 ensure sustainable food production systems
9.4 make industries more sustainable with increased resource-use efficiency and use of technology
Additional SDGs
Impact Objectives
Improving intra and inter-urban mobility and logistics for goods and people
Improving resource-use efficiency of existing mobility and transportation systems
Promoting innovations in sustainable and environmental friendly mobility and transportation modes
Theory of change
Problem
The transport sector is responsible for almost one quarter of global carbon emissions (IPCC, 2018)
Solution
New alternative carbon-light means of transportation for goods and people
Bridging inefficiency gaps of legacy logistics and transportation systems by use of technology and digitalizaton
Outcomes
Reduced carbon footprint of mobility and transportation modes and systems
Increased economic productivity in urban areas, particularly for SMEs and the informal economy
Increased urban social connectivity
Business model
Developers of new sustainable mobility and transportation modes
Digital logistics platforms and marketplaces
Innovative last mile delivery, logistics and related service providers
Main SDGs and targets
8.2 higher economic productivity through diversification, technological upgrading and innovation
11.2 access to safe, affordable and sustainable transportation
Additonal SDGs
