TECH RADAR

What are the key technologies that can help you reduce your negative impact?
Which tools are particularly good at which step of your value chain?
Beyond Climate Change, what planetary boundary is a priority for your business?
And, if you are a sustainable tech company, who are your competitors?

The need for a TECH RADAR

In today’s business environment, we are witnessing an increase in innovative technologies to tackle climate change mitigation and adaptation issues. There is a clear acceleration in the adoption of sustainability solutions by industry leaders, enabling the next wave of sustainable transformation. Understanding the available technologies given the current climate landscape allows businesses to define robust sustainability strategies, and to move away from Business-as-usual, accelerating to the next phase of sustainable company growth.

At Impact Labs.Earth, we believe that frugality and changes in our way of living and consuming are essential to build Nature Positive Businesses. We also believe that technology can be instrumental in increasing the potential of impact companies and in accelerating the transformation of traditional businesses.

  

THE AIM OF IMPACT LABS’ TECH RADAR

The Digital4Impact Tech Radar is curated by scanning the horizon to identify emerging technologies and their capabilities across all stages of the sustainability value chain. Our purpose is not to provide an oversimplification of complex systems, but to share our expertise obtained through our business transformation consulting experience. Our in-depth tailored insights empower your decision-making processes with accurate and relevant information. Having high-quality sustainability requirements is the first step to transgress Business-As-Usual, followed by choosing suitable methodologies and technologies that allow at-scale impact.

The Digital4Impact Tech Radar is the map to help you navigate the ever-evolving landscape of digital technologies that are driving sustainability.

Remote Sensing Deep Dive

Remote Sensing-based solutions are being adopted by a wide range of industries that depend directly on natural resources, from food to clothing, if we only consider strictly environmental applications. This can be observed by partnerships between remote sensing companies and big players such as Nestlé, Zalando, Nespresso, Channel, Rabobank, and others. These companies have been testing remote sensing capabilities with the objectives of increasing Sourcing Transparency, facilitating environmental data collection for reporting, and supporting green claims. 

The combination of spaceborne imagery, AI/Machine Learning, and environmental science has crystallized over the past decade to offer the most promising solution to monitor natural resources at scale and at an unprecedented level of accuracy. Remote Sensing solutions leverage the ever dropping prices of spaceborne data and computing power to serve a wide range of industries: from agrifood, timber, and the voluntary carbon market, to urban planning, all of which heavily rely on land, forest, and crops.

In this Deep Dive, we analyse and detailed the strong suits of 5 representative companies. Find out more by downloading the Digital4Impact Tech Radar above.

SUSTAINABILITY MANAGEMENT DEEP DIVE

In the last 5 years, stakeholders as a whole have become more knowledgeable and more demanding towards Sustainability management. On the technology front, numerous companies are developing solutions to project manage and report on sustainability data easily and effectively (from $905 million in 2021 to over $4.3 billion in 2027 at a 30% CACR).

Not only are new players emerging but big corporations with decades of knowledge on foundational ESG measures, like Sphera and Enablon, are also developing their own specific tech solutions addressing the entire sustainability implementation process.
