    Nordic Power Converters

    SDG 12 – Responsible Consumption and Production

    http://nordicpowerconverters.com

    Solution Description
    The LED driver market will reach €17Bn by 2021. Current power supplies (LED drivers) are bulky and limit the design opportunities for LED lighting. Especially for high end design lighting, the size is a major issue and luminaire manufactures are forced to compromise the quality to reach desired designs.
    Nordic Power Converters cut the size of power supplies to a fifth using a patented technology that combined RF circuits and power electronics. At the same time the technology also enable higher quality of light (less flicker and smoother dimming) and longer lifetime. With drivers from NPC, luminaire manufactures (our customers) are hence able to improve the design of their luminaries, improve the light from them and extend the lifetime of the overall product.
    The reduced product size also means use of less materials, e.g. copper and magnetic core materials which is a rare-earth ressource. The improved quality of light provides a better environment for people working and living under these lights, with several proven positive effects. The extended lifetime of the driver solves the main lifetime issue for LED lighting and hence reduce the amount of waste.
    The first product has been launched for street lighting, and the next product will be launched in May.

    SolarSack purifies 4 liters of water is reusable 600 times creating a total of 2400 liters of purified water, enough for a family of four for one year. With a end-user cost of $1-2, the solution is exponentially cheaper than the existing water purification methods.

    Implementing the SolarSack worldwide would have an enormous impact on global health, as well as the environment. Globally, there are 2.1 billion people living without access to clean water; as highlighted by the UN’s sixth Sustainable Development Goal (Water and Sanitation), this is an acute need for solutions for clean water. Waterborne illnesses are claim the lives of 800 children every day, and 5 million people a year. Additionally, around the world up to 443 million school days are lost every year because of water-related illnesses. Of the 2.1 billion without access to water, the World Health Organization estimates that half of them clean their water by boiling it, using bioenergy – such as firewood and charcoal. The consumption of bioenergy for water sanitation purposes has an incredibly negative impact on the environment, taking 1.35 billion trees and emitting 319 million tons of c02 a year. The SolarSack is the perfect solution to limiting dependence on firewood, and providing clean drinking water that is widely available to consumers living on less than $2 a day would essentially eliminate their exposure to waterborne illnesses.

    Solution Description
    Aguardio is a brilliantly simple solution that helps people live more sustainably by reducing the amount of water they use in the shower. Aguardio is a physical device designed to guide people in a more sustainable direction. Installed in the bathroom, Aguardio facilitates changes in shower behavior with the aim to reduce water and energy consumption.

    Aguardio is a plug and play solution and consist of two devices: a sensor placed at the ceiling in the shower cabinet, and a display placed on the wall in the shower cabinet.
    The Aguardio sensor collects data on shower behavior via two individual sensors registering movement and sound. Also, data on humidity and temperature are collected and uploaded to a cloud via Wi-Fi.
    The data on movement and sound are automatically transmitted to the Aguardio display as soon as the shower begins showing bath length. This means, that the display timer stops if water is turned off e.g. while shampooing, and the total bath length is shown when the user leaves the shower cabinet. Pilot test shows, that Aguardio can reduce the shower time by 20 percent per shower.

    Though, it is not a prerequisite for use of Aguardio, all data can be accessed via web access or app. Here it is possible to identify specific shower patterns, e.g. to what extent the user let water run before entering the shower, or if the user over time reduces shower time. Data on humidity and temperature are also accessible via the app. All data can be used both for individual tracking, for operational optimization and for gamification-benchmark – all depending on who the user is: individuals or organizations.

    THIRD NATURE

    SDG 11 – Sustainable Cities and Communities

    http://www.tredjenatur.dk

    Solution Description
    ABOUT THE CLIMATE TILE: Climate change is pushing the boundaries in our cities. The Climate Tile is a scalable climate adaptation tool that rethinks sidewalks as water management systems. The main component is essentially a hybrid between a concrete tile, an intelligent water pipe system and a permeable surface. The tile’s purpose is to positively answer the climate change challenges, whilst creating new adventures and green, urban spaces in our cities.
    WATER MANAGEMENT: Technically the Climate Tile can catch and redirect 30% of the projected extra rainwater coming due to climate change, and thereby prevent overloads within the existing drainage infrastructure. By being a positive addition to cities’ drainage system the damages caused by heavy rain are highly reduced, while the need for rainwater filtering decreases. The Climate Tile is 795 x 620 mm and is organized with a modular system where you can replace one tile instead of digging up an entire sidewalk. The scaling potential of the product is comprehensive. Only in Copenhagen we have more than 700 kilometers and New York has 20.000 kilometers of sidewalks. The climate tile allows the water to run down into an integrated and underground water handling system. The tiles are peppered with a system of holes, tunnels and ridges that collect and manage rainwater, funnelling it away from sidewalks – where it can cause damage – to a preferred use like irrigating nearby plantings. The system thereby reintroduces the natural water circuit and urban microclimate comfort by using trees and plants directly as hydraulic recipients.
    ADDED VALUE TO OUR CITIES: The Climate Tile develops and couples traditionally separate functions. With the development of The Climate Tile, future sidewalks will collect and manage water, whilst contributing to the growth of an urban nature and improved micro-climate. Thereby the tile generates added value for the citizens and raises the level of life quality and general health within the city. The project is seen largely as an inclusive solution in synergy with both roads, bike paths, signage, urban furniture, town squares, urban nature and more.
    PILOT SIDEWALK AT NØRREBRO: A pilot sidewalk for the Climate Tile was inaugurated in September 2018 in front of the café Heimdalsdgade22 in Copenhagen, to the delight of guests and residents in the street. The sidewalk not only contributes to the street’s climate adaptation, but it also adds further qualities to the street in terms of trees and planting, spaces for stay and a more beautiful surface.
    ABOUT THIRD NATURE: THIRD NATURE is a Copenhagen based office, consisting of 25 qualified and ambitious architects, landscape architects and constructing architects specialized in the fields of hybrid buildings, climate adapted landscapes and urban planning. With a unique hybrid look at the city, we explore new sustainable paradigms for the interaction between city, landscape, houses, types of settlement, climate and general community development.

    Within the name, THIRD NATURE, lies a strong belief and agenda to merge buildings and biology into a new city-nature typology. By eliminating the border between city and landscape, we create a symbiosis centred on making a sensuous and meaningful everyday life in the city.
    THIRD NATURE aims to make a real difference, where we design with the climate, with nature and with a design that goes beyond aesthetics – high quality of life in cities is not achieved by solely looking at buildings, sustainability, aesthetics, solutions, cities or biology alone.
    THIRD NATURE tries in every project to show and encourage the world with new positivistic approaches and ideas to deal with future urban challenges.

    Ingemann AgroData

    SDG 2 – Zero Hunger

    http://www.agroclimatica.com

    Solution Description
    Ingemann is a Danish family owned and run producer of organic honey and fine cocoa established in Nicaragua in 2007. We currently serve as the access to market for more than 1.500 small producers and have invested significantly to develop our supply chain over the years. After a couple of bad years where climate variability caused financial loses, we decided to start developing tools to strengthen our supply chain and make it and ourselves more climate resilient. This process led us to develop a unique and innovative methodology that through the understanding of the correlations between the behavior of the climate and the behavior of the crops inspired to us give life to Agroclimatica. Agroclimatica is a platform that offers financial institutions a science-based credit scoring for agricultural credits. It does so by combining dynamic climate models with local soil maps and detailed descriptions of the local crops and livestock, allowing for a dynamic and locally adapted result. Or in other words, on a scale from 1-10, what is the risk of a credit given on a specific farm, for a specific crop, for a specific period of time to a specific type of producer. The transparency in the risk profile allows for both the lender and the farmer to understand the risk of the exact loan and thereby make better decisions. For the farmer the decision is if and when to move forward with his or her current crop and alternatively consider to diversify into crops that offers better climate resilience. For the financial institution the transparency provides the required information to increase their loan portfolio through more competitive interest rates as well as to develop new financial products, adapted to the future local conditions, and thereby increase their institutional resilience to climate change through a reduced, overall risk of portfolio. A sister solution to Agroclimatica is called Bioclimatica. Bioclimatica works based on the same science-based infrastructure but the outcome is different. Bioclimatica can serve as an inexpensive tool for technical assistance for farmers who need information to make better decisions for their crops – allowing for higher yielding production with less risk – more food and less poverty! It does so by providing the farmers with periodical news bulletins through SMS or app with specific recommendation to action to be taken on the farm to mitigate weather phenomena and increase productivity and profitability on the farm. The team behind is multifunctional and includes agronomists, statisticians, map experts as well as agroclimatologists and bankers. About 250 years of accrued experience and all with an entrepreneurial spirit. In other words, Agroclimatica and Bioclimatica were born as spin-offs from the work we did to strengthen our own value chains of honey and cocoa. We are not just data nerds with another good idea – we are do’ers with exceptional technical skills and operational understanding from 3rd world countries and now it is about scaling up to reach further. The platformed was privileged to form part of the UNDP Accelerator program 2018, an initiative that supported the strategical concepts and technical foundations for ideas with the potential to help achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. This coaching process added enormous value as it helped us to understand the potential of what we had developed in areas we hadn’t even considered.

By expanding into this field of natural plant health solutions, we capitalize on Chr. Hansen’s indisputable leadership in microbial solutions and fermentation technology. In a collaboration with FMC, we aim to create a broad portfolio of biological solutions for farmers worldwide. And we seek solutions to produce more with less.
    Consumers all over the world are driving the natural and healthy trend. Growing food and beverage consumption is driven by the rise in the global middle-income population and their overall interest in healthy living and clean product labels. The world population continues to grow. So, does the farmers’ demand for higher yields on less land, as the availability of new agricultural land is very limited. Crop yields are already at high levels and climate change adds additional stress to productivity. The crop protection industry is continuously challenged to develop novel solutions to combat increased pest resistance to chemicals. However, chemicals development timelines and costs are extremely high whereas biologic solutions represent a lower development cost. Governments increasingly ban older crop protection technologies, like chemicals and increase entry barriers, while encouraging the development of new safer technologies to protect human health and the environment.
    According to a sugarcane farmer in Brazil that is using Chr. Hansen’s natural plant health microbial solutions feels that these products provide the farmer with an improvement in yield, saving money from discarded crops. They also have a positive effect in protecting the farmers crops from diseases and reducing nematode damage.

    SDG 12 – Responsible Consumption and Production

    https://www.chr-hansen.com/en

    Solution Description
    Fermentation by food cultures has been known from ancient time as a natural way of preserving food. The news is that Chr. Hansen has used the superior knowledge of food microbiology to identify and select the best of the good bacteria to be used for bioprotection. Bioprotection is the art of using natural microbial food cultures to delay the outgrowth of unwanted contaminants – preventing food spoilage or enhancing food safety. Food cultures with bioprotective properties for dairy are lactic acid bacteria species that are normally used in dairy products. When consumers look for yogurt, they often find labels stating: Milk, Culture, Fruit. Thus, unless made aware of the use of bioprotection, the consumers would not know it is there.
    An independent consumer study was carried out in Germany with a research organization in order to explore how extending shelf life affects consumer acceptance. Blind sensory tests documented that there was no difference in consumers’ liking a yogurt with standard shelf life and one with seven days’ additional shelf life. The study also showed that the consumer purchase intention was influenced positively and even favored the yogurt with longer shelf life if consumers were presented with information about the food waste reduction potential. The results reinforce the ambition of Chr. Hansen to continue to reduce food waste in yogurt, and to activate this opportunity even further at customer level.

    http://femaleinvest.dk

    Solution Description
    Female Invest aims to combat financial inequality and close the investment gender gap by helping women engage in the world of finance, breaking down barriers, and teaching women how to become independent investors. This is important because 1) women need a bigger pension as they tend to live longer, 2) women need to compensate for gaps in their earning life to ie. have children, 3) more women work part-time than men, and 4) the gender pay gap means that women earn less over a lifetime than men and as such are going to be making lower pension contributions and likely have less to save and invest. Female Invest has a digital platform for which the purpose is to empower women financially by raising awareness through national media, events, talks, and workshops in collaboration with professionals and financial institutions. As such members will get an introduction to financial markets and learn how to become confident investors. We offer a higher degree of inclusion, and serve as a unique platform for knowledge sharing, thus allowing participants to exchange experiences and be inspired by each other.

    Currently, we are in the process of evolving our digital platform. When the development is complete in the fall the social network will entail the following: a) Educational video content, podcasts, articles, blogs and news feed with daily market updates b) a unique forum for women to share and follow each other’s portfolios in real time c) access to job openings within the field of finance as well as a CV-database for companies.
