Participaciones Solares Ecooo by ECOoo

Participaciones Solares Ecooo by ECOoo

Ecooo’s key goal is to make solar energy production and consumption accessible to everyone, making the energy system in Spain both sustainable and accountable. We buy solar plants that we then divide into participations starting at €100 for long-term investments and €1000 for short-term ones. In the 15 years since Ecooo was created, we have socialised 124 solar plants throughout Spain, with more than 4.500 participants, avoiding the emission of 40.836T CO2 to the atmosphere. Ecooo’s solar-energy plants are registered and are entitled to a steady retribution for a 30-year period. The return rate of investments is calculated according to the income generated quarterly by energy sales of each plant, and deducting the maintenance, taxes, and managing costs. Profits are shared among participants according to the amount of money they have invested.

Brocklesby Biogas by Iona capital

Brocklesby Biogas by Iona capital

Brocklesby Biogas owned by Iona Capital, is a waste to energy plant which works in cooperation with Brocklesby Ltd. Brocklesby Ltd is a recycling facility that recycles used cooking oil and fatty food waste to produce biodiesel and produces a liquid byproduct that is used in the next-door anaerobic digestion plant. The plant processes 70,000 tonnes of liquid food waste per year and generates 7MW of heat and electricity. The project also recovers value from the material produced from the digestion process via producing PAS 110 accredited organic fertilizer for surrounding farming activities. Brocklesby Biogas has the capacity to increase its level of heat use over the next few years as the potential for a private wire opportunity to a local business which would further improve its sustainability offering to the surrounding area of North Cave, Hull. The project is also eligible for ROC’s and RHI tariffs which help improve the projects overall profitability.

Pure Salmon by 8F

Pure Salmon by 8F

UN experts predict that by 2030, the world population will have increased by 1billion. Overfishing and current open net sea cages will not be able to provide sustainable and positive impact solutions for this growing demand. We use Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS) technology so we can grow our land based salmon in a controlled and fully traceable environment anywhere in the world. Our production system has no negative impact on the eco-system of the oceans and our fish are grown with sustainable feed. Our fully safe environment means our fish are free from antibiotics, micro-plastics, mercury, pesticides and hormones. The modularity of our RAS technology allows us to replicate, build and manage our fish farms anywhere around the world, fully aligned with some of the UN’s SDGs. We have a positive impact on the local eco-system as we hire locally and create 170 to 200+ direct full time jobs, depending on the size of the facility (we build 10 000 tonnes p.a. or 20 000 tonnes p.a. c

Circular Swapabee

Circular Swapabee

Swapabee was started in 2016 By Founder Jesse Sobitan. His mother was a horder, he grew up with rooms full of unused and unneeded products and everyday new un-wanted things were added to the pile. As he got older he realised he wasn’t the only one. It turns out that the UK alone produces 31 million tonnes of waste a year and the EU on a whole nearly 500 million tonnes of waste a year. In 2019 Swapabee was launched and rapidly gained traction from being awarded best sustainable circular economy idea at Web Summit 2019. To making partnerships with Brighton and Coventry University. Also to winning a 100,000.00 GBP billboard campaign with Ocean outdoors. Plus much much more to come this year such as facilitating sustainable fashion swaps at London Fashion Week! Now we are turning our sights to assisting the rest of the EU

Sustainable Proteins Engagement by FAIRR

Sustainable Proteins Engagement by FAIRR

The report, Appetite for Disruption, A Second Serving, launched alongside the Sustainable Proteins Hub, a microsite allowing FAIRR members to access the full data of the analysis, presents the key trends within the industry and how alternative proteins are now perceived by leading food companies as a driver for growth and a climate-related risks mitigation tool. Beside encouraging shifts such as 40% of leading food firms having dedicated teams for plant based products, the engagement highlights other changes for instance the increase in venture investments in plant based proteins which have almost doubled since 2019, reaching $1.1bn in 2020 (July), making 2020 a watershed year for plant-based market capitalisation. The engagement, launched in 2016, grew ten-fold since, reaching $13trillion in assets, demonstrating further the progression of the alternative proteins industry and the opportunity it represents for companies to address the risks of the global protein value chain.

Fondation Cotrel, Selection, support and follow-up of multi-disciplinary international research projects

Fondation Cotrel, Selection, support and follow-up of multi-disciplinary international research projects

The Cotrel Foundation was created by a former orthopedic surgeon who had dedicated his life to improving surgical treatments for scoliotic patients. After the implementation of the Cotrel-Dubousset instrumentation (1983) which positively changed the lives of over 4 million patients in the world; Dr Cotrel aimed to understand the mechanisms of idiopathic scoliosis. The purpose of the Foundation was to select and financially support the most deserving and promising research teams from all over the world, enabling them to investigate the causes of idiopathic scoliosis. The Board’s mission is to identify and accompany the teams for the whole duration of their research. Scientific symposiums are organized once a year to stimulate the exchanges between the teams. This has led to unexpected collaboration breaking both geographical and disciplinaries boundaries : A multidisciplinary France-Canada research team, through their wide-open research in genetics, biology and physiology, have discovered defects in centrosomes and cilia that may underlie scoliosis pathogenesis. Their major and lasting contribution was the identification of the first gene causing familial scoliosis.

BNP Paribas European Social Impact Bonds Fund

BNP Paribas European Social Impact Bonds Fund

BNP Paribas European Social Impact Bonds Fund is an alternative 10 Million € Investment Fund dedicated to BNP Paribas SA and the European Investment Fund, equally invested and deeply involved in its process. Social Impact Bonds being intrinsically innovative, a fund with SIBs as underlying assets is a breakthrough in thinking at several levels: 1/ Impact is core: SIB is the only financial instrument that underlines the direct positive correlation between creating social improvement and creating economic and monetary value, by setting impact at its heart as the unique driver of the financial returns. 2/ Impact measurement is essential: it is crucial to demonstrate with scientific precision the social added value generated by the project, and the savings for the public authorities because this measurement is contractually linked to a financial return for investors. 3/ All stakeholders involved need to step out of their comfort zone: non-profit structures acquire technical financial knowledge, public authorities need to shift their mindsets from subsidies -based funding to outcome-based, financial investors need to switch to the triptych risk-profitability-impact analysis.

Program « Prof en entreprise”  by Fondation Croissance Responsable

Program « Prof en entreprise" by Fondation Croissance Responsable

We have decided to digitalize the "Prof en entreprise" program with the support of the company Hobbys and to create an application "Prof en entreprise" so that the actors of education can apprehend the realities of the company on the occasion of webinars, podcasts, interviews, crossed views around the company. Teachers will also be able to immerse themselves in companies, during internships that will be offered to them through this application.
They will thus be able to discover the functioning and organization of a company, whatever its size and purpose, its skills and professions, and become aware of its role and its commitment to society.
