The startups that help the planet are the protagonists of the new issue of Green&Blue
Cleantech startups are the protagonists of the issue of Green&Blue on newsstands tomorrow with Republic. The stories of 72 innovative companies and their young creators who have decided to invest knowledge, work and money in search of possible ways to combat climate change. There are many sectors: ranging from decarbonisation to energy, from sustainable fashion to soft mobility, from the circular economy to agrifood. Ideas and projects, which have often already become solid entrepreneurial realities, born in universities or from the life experiences of the founders, all aimed at trying to stop the climate crisis that threatens to overwhelm the planet.
And then there are those who like Ogyre has assembled fleets of fishermen in different parts of the world to clean the oceans of plastic and then transform this waste into swimsuits and bags. Others, like Planet Farms they invented the largest vertical farm in Europe, and their salad and basil crops grow saving water, energy and without using pesticides. Or who how Electra Vehicles lengthens the life of car batteries and those who build recyclable and bio-like sailboats Northern Light Composites which also won the Italian championships with its hull.
Different experiences but all united by doing something for the planet and, to help those who would like to contribute to change, in the issue on newsstands there is also a map with suggestions and advice to start the path that leads to the creation and financing of your own environmental startup .
An ecological but also economic theme. As he writes in the comment Enrico Deluchigeneral manager of PoliHub of the Politecnico di Milano: "Decarbonisation is a duty not only because 'our house is burning', but also because we are facing a gigantic opportunity to be protagonists of a new industrial revolution. Where those who move first and with greater conviction will acquire competitive and technological advantage from which all citizens will benefit".
