Today we catch up with a really exciting technology startup which has been a member of the CODE_n community since 2013: EcoChain from lovely Amsterdam! EcoChain embarked on its journey with CODE_n as a finalist of the global startup CODE_n CONTEST. Its motto was “smart solutions for global challenges” and in keeping with this idea, EcoChain pitched a business model with every intention of changing the world. Its idea revolved around a new and innovative life cycle analysis method that would enable companies to maintain a sustainable supply chain.
I often wonder how sustainable products really are, so I was looking forward to interviewing EcoChain, an application in which environmental administration is coupled throughout the supply chain, forming real-time and continuous life cycle analysis calculations.
Boudewijn Mos is co-founder; he explained the concept of EcoChain and how the idea came up in the first place.
Carbon footprint became a buzzword of the 21st century. It acts as an indicator for sustainability. The innovations of our finalists in this field help to have a better eye on the carbon footprint and therefore offer an opportunity to reduce it. Have a look at Carbon Control, EcoChain, ecotastic, Get-neutral, Opara, Sustainable Reference and TheGreenAge*.
Carbon Control – Darragh Kirby
EcoChain – Boudewijn & Jochem Mos
ecotastic – Anna Yukiko Bickenbach
Get-neutral – Holger Rupp
Opara – Gustavo Monteiro
Sustainable Reference – Andy Bäcker
*As soon as we receive the questionnaire of TheGreenAge it will be found here as well.
