Cedar is a climate emissions data and reporting platform, for companies to view the carbon emissions within their supply chains. Cedar calculates the overall carbon emissions down their supply chain, and collates the data into one simple scope 3 emissions report. Cedar makes it easy for companies to be transparent about the carbon emissions in their supply chain.


Cycleau is a compact greywater treatment system designed to retrofit across sinks, showers, and laundry units to recycle wastewater for potable use. Their technology advances users’ resilience to public water contaminants while reducing the impacts of sewage pollution on open waterways.

Environmental Service Pod

Presently, building services are provided by a fragmented supplier network. Integration and communication among these various building services is often impossible. Environmental Service Pod offers a comprehensive building service system that is prefabricated and modularised. It provides electrical, building conditioning and water services needs with off-grid potential, primarily operating on renewable energy. They provide healthy radiative conditioning (cooling and heating) systems with energy recovery ventilation, fulfilling the requirements of a complete environmentally responsive services system.


The built environment currently accounts for approximately 40% of global greenhouse gas emissions annually, representing one of the most significant contributors to climate change.
In response to this challenge, GreenCoat is developing a next-generation plasma-coating smart window solution that will dramatically increase the energy efficiency of buildings. By changing the opacity of windows in response to real-time environmental conditions, GreenCoat significantly decreases unwanted heat transfer through windows, resultantly reducing the need and reliance on financially and environmentally costly heating, ventilation & air-conditioning (HVAC)systems to moderate the indoor temperatures and thermal comfort of buildings.
GreenCoat is designed as an end-to-end IoT-enabled solution that also allows integration with Building Management and Automation Systems to optimise energy consumption even further, with lighting and HVAC adjusted accordingly depending on window opacity.

Waste Free Events

Waste Free Events was created to support and guide schools and community groups to run events with as little waste as possible. Having monitored bins and reusables instead of single use items is a big part of the solution but there’s a lot more involved. Waste Free Events plan to give presentations, share resources and give consultations to guide people. There are Zero Waste Kits available, Bin Stations and Reusables to hire however a lot of people don’t know what’s available. That’s where Waste Free Events comes in.
