Imagine no wasted food, by efficiently sharing the non-used raw materials after your meal preparation.
Hacking Food Waste in private Homes or in community living spaces for students, would save water, phosphor, CO2, money as well as pollution from transport trucks.
Eat Exchange is a mobile application, which allows local community to share food that would have been wasted. The application enables individuals to advertise the food that they wouldn’t be able to consume. Then the supply of spare food would be collected by the members of the community who would otherwise need to buy it. The application contributes to the reduction of waste generated by consumers, methane discharge, as well as to the decrease of CO2 emissions and water consumption.
Company Carbon Deathmap hits two audiences: it’s provocative and could be used to apply pressure to industries, equally it helps bring visibility of risk to mainstream investors.
The FTSE 100 group of companies are valued by the market based on expectations about their future earning potential. But the huge assets of fossil fuels owned and used by the companies pose a systemic risk their earning potential. Given that future emissions of carbon dioxide are highly constrained if we are to avoid climate change, companies sitting on large stocks of carbon are likely to see the value of these commodities reduce as they become increasingly difficult to use…
…so how does the current valuation of companies change if we take this into account?
We believe over 80% of the sustainability field currently use spreadsheets. As a process, this is broken, not scalable and inaccurate. AMEE in Excel Integrates spreadsheets with web-services, to create a behaviour change that could address this issue and bring more credibility to the market.
Don’t let your cloud computing become hairy, lumbering, and extinct. Use Mastodon C to select the most efficient and sustainable location for your job. Continually calculated and updated, to give you the confidence that your data crunching won’t destroy the planet.
The financial cost and carbon cost depends on:
Live costs from cloud providers right now
Current energy mix at each location
Current temperature at each location (low temperature means less cooling needed, so less energy used per operation)
One Tonne was a clear and simple idea that was the most likely to be used and forwarded on to friends. We also liked that “yurt” was listed as a dwelling.
We took one tonne as a memorable round number for the personal carbon footprints we may need to aim for. The question then is.. how much fun can we have for a tonne?!
The benefit of thinking about it this way round, as opposed to many current carbon awareness initiatives which focus more on ‘where we are now’, is that we start to get a feeling for where we need to get to.
A mod for Minecraft that adds carbon emissions using AMEEconnect to get realscientific data from the IPCC. When you burn some wood in a furnace, the mod calls out to AMEEconnect to do a calculation, and adds the result to a tracker in-game. As the carbon ticks up, the environment gets more and more polluted as the skies go dark and the clouds come down.
