Technology alone is not enough to achieve the transition to the low-carbon economy. We can help you to integrate processes, solutions and business models to reduce, remove or avoid GHG emissions and meet societal goals. If you are an organisation willing to make better use of assets and resources to reinforce your sustainable competitiveness, scroll down and see what we do.  

 

Research & Innovation

Close to market Research& Innovation for pre-commercialized technologies, products and solutions expected to have a more sustainable life-cycle than best commercially available. Also applicable to mature technologies aiming at sustainable transformation. The research results enable your key business activities to meet the respective criteria for contribution to climate change mitigation, while respecting the relevant criteria for doing no significant harm to other environmental objectives: climate change adaptation, sustainable use of water and marine resources, pollution prevention, protection and restoration of ecosystems/biodiversity.

 

Social value creation

The assessment of the social dimension of sustainability starts with the analysis of the socio-economic context within which the organisation operates to spot threats and opportunities. The next step is to zoom-in a specific technology from a socio-technical perspective and understand its influence on the society based on a set of social factors. Recommendations are provided for the enhancement of positive social impact. The activity meets the Horizon2020 EU project requirements for integration of Social Sciences & Humanities (SSH), and complies with the InvestEU programme guidelines for direct financing to facilitate the start of the operations.

 

Circular Economy

This activity includes an evaluation of the circularity performance of industrial products and associated business operations. Activities with the biggest impact are determined and points of intervention throughout the product's life-cycle are identified for the improvement of value circulation (of materials, components etc). Are you ready to innovate your business model? Through the integration of sustainability factors in business strategies we co-design circular strategic directions, which facilitate the sustainable transformation of your organisation, it's supply chain, and the creation of sustainable business ecosystems.

 

Knowledge transfer

Knowledge transfer on specific project results aspires to equip supply chain actors, stakeholders and communities with skills relevant to designing out waste, promoting sustainable production methods, sustainable lifestyles and consumption behaviors. In a broader sense, skills development can be tailored to trainings and programmes introducing the concept of sustainable growth in higher education and focused on industry-academia collaboration.
