How organizations can reduce emissions and decarbonize operations and products with innovative solutions

Forde, January 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – EarlyBirds, the company that operates an open business-to-business (B2B) ecosystem that provides a means for innovators (startups, scale-ups and mature), early adopters and Subject Matter Experts (SMEs)) to come together and participate in the acceleration of technological advances, would like to emphasize that companies can reduce their emissions and decarbonize their products and operations through the use of innovative solutions.

This ability to accelerate technological innovation in an organization is important due to the growing demand for technologies designed to combat climate change. As such, climate technologies are the innovations that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and include renewable energy technologies that use solar power, wind power, hydropower, etc. Other examples of emerging climate technologies are early warning systems, drought tolerant crops, flood protections, supercomputers for better weather forecasting and climate change data collection, recycling technologies water and the use of sensors to detect signs of global warming.

Such technological innovations are often available through startups and mature companies, but sometimes are not pursued to completion due to lack of funding. As a result, there is limited knowledge of these technologies and even those in the know do not understand how they can be useful for their organization. This is why the EarlyBirds open innovation ecosystem was created to allow these innovators and companies seeking innovations such as climate technologies to come together. Using the EarlyBirds platform and programs, organizations can find ways to put these innovations into practice to achieve a particular goal, such as reducing emissions and decarbonizing products and operations.

An important challenge that companies must overcome is how to make the connection between climate change technologies and the plans, goals and activities of the company. Since the primary goal of a business is profit, linking it to investments in climate change technology can be a complex challenge. Perhaps this can be best understood by examining how climate change can negatively impact businesses. Climate change can impact businesses in several ways. For example, variable weather conditions, such as extremely cold winters and hot summers, lead to increased flood and drought risks which can, in turn, severely affect supply chains. The disruption of supply chains means there is less supply or a delayed supply of raw materials required by businesses, resulting in disruption of business operations. Likewise, extreme weather events cause damage to property and have a negative impact on the economy, business productivity and consumer spending.

Each business or organization will have its own issues and challenges on how it can reduce emissions and decarbonize operations and products. The types of innovative solutions needed to meet the challenges will be spread across many areas of the business and supply chain. EarlyBirds can help companies find these innovators and their technological innovations to meet their emission reduction goals.

The EarlyBirds open innovation ecosystem is made up of two main parts, the platform with over 3 million global innovators and the Challenger and Explorer supported programs. Organizations can subscribe to the platform and learn to use the capabilities of the platform and take advantage of the unique EarlyBirds Challenger program. The assisted program, Explorer, is designed to accelerate innovation for the entire organization as a service. It includes an SME designated for the business; a platform business license; regular webinars to help drive innovation in the organization; quarterly and monthly innovation days; and a focus on certain innovations. The Challenger program is designed to focus on a particular business or technical issue for the organization at a time.
