Building Clim8 Invest together
13 April 2021 Inside Clim8
Sharing our roadmap
The trick to building good products is to very clearly identify and define what problem your product solves. Useful products tend to solve a pressing need.
At Clim8, we’re starting with what we believe is now the biggest problem the human race has ever faced. The climate crisis is very real and very urgently needs to be solved.
Add on top the complexity, accessibility and murky nature of the investment world. And the difficulty of working out exactly what activities our investments are funding. We’ve got ourselves a pretty meaty (or should we say a plant based alternative) problem to solve.
Shifting towards sustainability
The global economy needs to rapidly shift to be sustainable. In other words, to stop consuming resources quicker than our planet can produce them.
According to the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the world must invest $2.4 trillion in clean energy, every year until 2035, to avoid catastrophic damage from climate change. I think you understand why we’re building Clim8 invest now!
Research by Nordea Bank tells us that sustainable investment can be 27x more impactful on a person’s carbon footprint than eating less meat, using public transport, reducing water use and flying less.
Shaping Clim8’s product
The magnitude and complexity of this problem is huge. But so is the opportunity. And this is why we have always been determined to build Clim8 around a community of passionate customers and supporters.
We can’t solve this thing alone but together our impact can be huge.
That’s why we’re proud to have completed two crowdfunding campaigns and love the fact many of our customers are our shareholders.
This community has also been invaluable during the build of our beta app, helping us shape the early product we have today. Thousands of you have already downloaded our app and given us incredibly useful insight and feedback. But we know we are only one percent of the way there.
Our mission is to have a positive impact on climate change by empowering anyone to invest sustainably into truly green, sustainable companies.
We know we need to make it simple to invest in those companies that are actually leading the charge and having the most impact.
That is why we have decided to share our roadmap with our community and publicly. This is to help you understand what we’re working on right now and what problems we think need to be solved next. You’ll find a combination of features that are well defined and almost ready to use as well as some things we want to explore.
They often say it takes a village to raise a child. But in the case of climate change it takes the whole world. There is no time like the present to become a Clim8er.
