Laboratorium EE (Poland)
goodWARM is an innovative energy audit mobile application. It aims at providing end-users with information of how much they can benefit from conducting thermal modernisation. Their observation is that people are unable to undertake such initiatives, due to the high cost of professional auditors. Thanks to the advanced algorithm working behind their mobile application, the end user needs only to respond to a few simple questions and it results in highly accurate recommendations.
Brasil Mata Viva (Brazil)
Brasil Mata Viva is a methodology that was developed through a network of partner companies, whose mission is to generate and develop solutions Sustainability. This methodology is based on the PES (Payments for Environmental Services), which generates as a product Credit Forest. This credit is generated from the preservation of forest areas (including PPAs and Legal Reserve) in private farms or in public conservation areas. The Credit Forests is classified as an “intangible, incorporeal, tradable and transferable.”
Eco Panplas (Brazil)
Eco Panplas make it possible to recycle contaminated plastic packaging in an ecological way as our innovative production process does not use water, or generate waste, producing excellent quality recycled raw material. Our Process makes it possible to manufacture new oil packaging without using virgin material and with cost reduction, in addition to recovering all the residual oil in the packaging that is destined for re-refining, eliminating the environmental risk.
Um Grau e Meio (Brazil)
Over the past 2 years, forest fires around the world have been the largest in scale and CO2 emissions in the last 20 years. Uk Grau e Meio developed a Fire Management as a Platform Solution named Pantera®. Pantera Platform translates the pillars of firefighting into technologies to attend the three phases of firefighting composed of Prevention and Preparation, Early Detection, and Fast Response, and Operational and SGD Impact Indicators. We provide end-to-end SAAS and HAAS solutions to tackle wildfires in the early stages and avoid huge forest losses, high CO2 emissions, biodiversity loss, respiratory problems and economic impact.

Iceni Earth (Scotland)
Iceni Earth is an earth-tech start-up on a mission to empower land-based industry to restore nature. A digital platform that uses science-based assessments, machine learning and community benchmarking, packages through an intuitive user interface. Iceni Earth is a successful alum of Civtech 5.0. They secured a public sector contract to develop the platform, alongside Nature Scot and 100 farmers across Scotland.
Foros made green investments simple and accessible for everyone. The FOROS platform offers features that estimate the value of the forest, as well as the buying and selling of the forest land via digital forest auctions. It also offers a sustainable forest management service called Foros Grow that ensures that trees can grow healthier, bigger and taller through selective logging; this involves removing the weak trees to give more sunlight for others to grow. They are creating new platform features, such as a forest carbon impact calculator.
XDI Systems (South Australia)
The XDI Platform brings together asset-level data sets with extensive climate models to provide deep analysis of an organisation’s exposure to climate change and extreme weather risk. The online interactive platform provides powerful, on-demand, quantitative insights for decision-makers, financial managers and investors.
