Climate footprint awareness is not something that only affects world leaders and major companies. In the SMB market, it is often harder to make good climate choices and even more so to document and report on climate footprints. There is little doubt that statutory requirements will be introduced, both nationally and from the EU, with regard to documentation of climate impact. Amesto wants to make this easier by offering climate accounting to the SMB market.

Norwegian innovation shows water quality in real time.
Access to clean water is one of the greatest global challenges we will face in the years to come. It is now possible to measure water quality in real time. Lars Rinnan, CEO of Amesto NextBridge, is enjoying being able to contribute to this interesting innovation project together with the Norwegian start-up AquaAlarm. The product is a unique Norwegian-developed sensor, which will continuously monitor water quality and issue an alarm if there are too many bacteria or impurities in the water.

Clean Kokos - digital laundrette.
Clean Kokos is not a laundrette that offers services, but it’s a good alternative to washing and drying your clothes at home. The concept of the laundrette is based on the sharing economy and the idea that not everyone needs to own a washing machine or tumble dryer. Great emphasis has also been placed on the environmental aspect.
Here, you can wash your clothes in industrial machines, which means that the laundry will be just as clean but the process requires less time and water. Emphasis has also been placed on the use of environmentally friendly laundry detergents with automatic dosing. The only thing you need to get started is an app.
