The Climate Tech Companies to Watch This Month: September Week 3

In this monthly series, we will be doing a weekly feature of incredible ClimateTech Startups, companies, or projects that are leading the fight against the Climate Crisis. 

These startups work in a number of fast-growing industry categories which include but are not limited to; EDUTECH, FINTECH, GREENTECH (including Energy and Transportation), FOOD & AG TECH, and CONSTRUTECH.

This list will give you an opportunity to better understand the problem(s) they solve, the impact they are looking to have in the climate fight, and how you can potentially help them.

This initiative from Startup Basecamp aims to support founders by giving them access to networking and exposure opportunities that help them to scale and finance their Climate Tech solutions together with you.

Do not hesitate to join our collective movement by requesting your membership.

With Care,
Guillaume and the SBC TEAM 

Week 3:

GHG Capture, Storage & Tracking Startups:

1. Cascadia Carbon Inc.

 Founded: 2019, Vancouver, BC, Canada

Founder & CEO: 
Alex Wick

Elevator Pitch:
Cascadia has developed a low-carbon blockchain that allows individuals and enterprises to exchange tokens backed by offset or sequestered carbon.

Problem They Solve:
Cascadia has found that todays carbon offset market is too exclusive to governments and large for- and non-profit corporations. Furthermore, the transaction process can be unmanageable, unclear, and is often at risk of being fraudulent.

Impact:
Cascadia’s product, CODEX, uses a platform marketplace to allow individuals and corporations to buy, or crowdsource carbon offsets. Crowdsourcing can be done by choosing more ecologically-conscious alternatives for their daily transportation. These transaction records are documented on blockchain making them secure, traceable, transparent and verifiable.

Stage:
Pre-Seed

Salubata produce modular footwear knitted from plastic wastes.

Problem They Solve:
According to Salubata, the average person produces 0.5kg of plastic waste per day, roughly the same weight as a pair of shoes (between 0.3 and 0.5kg). Salubata aim to upcycle the plastic waste into lightweight, fashionable footwear in an attempt to divert it from landfills and elsewhere.

Impact:

2019, Austin, TX

Founders: 
Colin Ardern & Alex Blum

Elevator Pitch:
Applied Bioplastics reduce the carbon footprint of durable plastic goods without changing the price or method of production.

Problem They Solve:
The pollution produced in the manufacturing, useage, and disposal of plastics is a huge cost to the planet. Whilst solutions do exist, many of them are an expensive and uncommon solution to traditional fossil fuel based plastic.

Impact:
Applied Bioplastics supplies economically sustainable plant-based plastic alternatives. Their wide variety of products reduce petroleum dependency, pollution, and habitat destruction. Through their supply chains, they also support eco-friendly agriculture in developing countries.
