70% of global greenhouse gas emissions stem from consumer choices, which means we are all part of the solution to stopping climate change. At Spark Sustainability, we make climate action easy. We connect climate-conscious individuals with companies that provide sustainable solutions to accelerate the shift towards a carbon neutral society.
Our mission is to enable 1 billion climate actions by 2025. This will result in a reduction of more than 100 billion kg of CO2, or roughly twice the annual emissions of Finland.
We are currently running an open beta testing of our app, The Donut, which lets users calculate their lifestyle emissions, gives them personalized tips on how to reduce them, and allows them to track their progress. We are preparing to launch the 1.0 version by the end of 2020.
