| Dear Friends of Greentown Labs,
To reach climate goals, businesses have to grapple with new questions. Reducing emissions is not a simple process, and decarbonizing certain business functions or products can be daunting. Whatever your climate-related obstacle may be, Greentown Go believes that solving many of the hardest-to-decarbonize business challenges is made easier with startup-corporate collaboration.
So far this year, we’ve seen how these collaborations can address the emissions that result from complex global supply chains in Go Make 2022 with Mitsubishi Corporation (Americas). In Go Move 2022 with BASF and Magna, we’ve seen how that same type of collaboration can advance circularity and decarbonize the lifecycle impact of materials in the automotive value chain. With the launch of Go Energize 2023 with Vineyard Wind and supported by the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC), startups are poised to collaborate with the United States’ first utility-scale offshore wind farm to advance responsible and sustainable offshore wind development. Finally, with the launch of Year 3 of the Carbon to Value (C2V) Initiative, innovative carbontech startups will have the opportunity to engage with business leaders across a wide array of industries to advance their carbon-related solutions.
For more updates on our current programs and examples of how startups and corporates can work together on climate action, keep reading below.
As always, we’d appreciate your help spreading calls for applications with any startups in your network. If you represent a corporate partner interested in leading a Greentown Go program, you can reach out here.
Thank you for supporting Greentown Go and your commitment to climate action!
