Cities and companies can be a solution to the climate crisis. Many are leading the way while making their cities more attractive and their business more robust and innovative. Yet, year after year, global emissions continue to rise. We are nowhere near a 1.5°C trajectory, and at this rate of emissions we have less than 10 years left in our 1.5°C carbon budget.
With Futureproofed we set a 2022 goal to work with cities and companies with combined emissions of 110 Mton of CO2 per year, approximately Belgium’s yearly emissions. We want to help these cities and companies reduce their CO2 emissions 5% per year — still not enough for 1.5°C, but inching towards a science based trajectory.
One of the main challenges is getting started. Instead of trying to reinvent the wheel with elaborate Excel-reports, we're enabling these teams to digitally collaborate to develop and execute their climate strategy.
At Futureproofed, in the last couple of years we’ve evolved from a consultancy to a ClimateTech SaaS organization. Our software-platforms FutureproofedCities and CarbonCap help these cities and organisations to measure, manage and reduce their CO2-emissions.
