Crowdfund for a climate neutral society

The campaign has ended. Thank you for all the crowdfunders!


Spark Sustainability is empowering people to become a part of the solution to climate change. We have created the Carbon Donut calculator and an email course on sustainable lifestyle – now we need your support to grow the movement!

Climate change is being addressed by governments and with new technology, and we think that’s great, but to successfully transition to carbon neutral societies people need to know what they can do and also to feel like they can be part of the solution. This is because 70% of global emissions can be linked to individual consumer choices! This is where Spark Sustainability comes in. We show you which emissions you can impact through your daily decisions and lifestyle choices, and by grouping together the many small emission reductions made by all our users we make solving climate change social.

 

The Spark Team has worked hard to create a fantastic website with information about how the individual can help mitigate climate change – but now we need the support of our community to spread the word and create a movement! We are a 6 month old startup at the beginning of our journey and your support would help us reach more people and ultimately contribute to a more sustainable world. Spark Sustainability’s goal is to have reached one million people by the end of 2020, thus creating a real impact by inspiring the entire community to reduce emissions one small climate action at a time.

To have a big impact we’ll need to make some money so we can hire people: this crowdfunding campaign is just a first, vital, push. This fall we will have our first paid consultancies and licensing of the Carbon Donut, and further down the line we will do company collaborations and have unique insight into consumer climate action.

 

Company Roadmap for the Future

Summer 2018

– Grow user base and community, roll out our first course on sustainable lifestyle and conduct interviews to understand our users better.

– Start building vital business relationships to city officials and companies that sell products or services that mitigate emissions.

– Recruit new team members

Autumn 2018

– Grow user base and community to 5000 people, collect climate pledges and thus have a real impact on emissions reductions.

– License out our Carbon Donut calculator to be used by other websites

Winter 2018-2019

– Have our first paid company partnerships where we can offer our company clients both consulting and visibility for their climate-friendly products and services

– Host a competition between universities to test how this can boost climate action

Spring 2019

– Reach influencer status with over 10.000 community members in the Nordic countries

– Plan our mobile application and its features

– Start collecting valuable anonymized data on what kind of climate actions people prefer and what motivates them, revenue from the learnings from this data.

– Negotiate with cities for possible partnerships where Spark can support their goals to become carbon-neutral

 

Goal of the Crowdfunding Campaign

Minimum: 1 000 €

With this sum we can make sure that by the end of this year, 500 people will have signed up for our course on sustainable lifestyle.

Via the email course we give concrete examples and encourage people to pledge to reduce their emissions by showing you how to directly decrease 1000 kg or more of their Carbon Donut.

Target: 5 000 €

On top of reaching out with the course, this sum would allow Spark Sustainability to get it’s very first employee working part-time this autumn. A growing company needs increasing powers, and being able to pay even a modest salary, is a great way of showing true appreciation for skilled people. Spark needs talents especially in marketing analysis and IT.
