It can seem overwhelming as an individual to know what to do about the climate.
One simple choice can make a giant impact though: you can turn your building from a climate villain to climate hero by constructing or retofitting it with insulation which actually stores carbon.
Our company was founded in order to maximise the scale of impact on climate change. We studied climate change when at university and we focused on finding the best solution.
Unlike all the conventional construction insulation companies, we not only insulate buildings, we use materials which are better-than-zero carbon. There is more carbon stored in our fast-growing plant-based products via photosynthesis than the amount of carbon used to manufacture them. At a rate 5 x greater than timber does this.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a special report this week. We need to much more, on a much bigger scale - and much faster. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-45775309
One of the fantastic masterclasses we won a place on along with the other Top 30 European Cleantech Startups. Two days 25 stories up over Munich - what a view.
Thank you to Danish serial angel investor Nicolaj Nielson, author of the well recommended Startup Funding. Also to brilliant investor and legal expert Martin Giese and to Climate KIC organiser Cassi Welling.
