We need to change, but how exactly?
With a growing population estimated to be 9.8 billion by 2050, we will end up using 3 planets worth of resources. If you're on the same page as us, you'll already know that we need new models in our industry to retain our businesses in the future and to ensure the safety of our planet for generations to come. We've heard theres 4.5 trillion USD worth of value to capture for a Circular Economy, a big enough incentive?
At OrbTank we're turning concerns into action by co-creation and cross pollinating ideas for a better tomorrow, today.
We see sustainability in organizations shifting from the sideline to the bottom line. We are turning todays theories into tomorrows practice. We are a trigger and a thought starter. We aim to show the impossible is possible. The decisions we take now will determine the future.
A blueprint for a new economic model that designs out waste from our system. Looking beyond the current take-make-dispose linear model, a circular economy aims to redefine growth, focusing on positive society-wide benefits.
The Sustainable Development Goals
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a collection of 17 global goals set by the United Nations. For the goals to be reached, everyone needs to do their part: governments, the private sector, civil society and people like you and me.
The 4th Industrial Revolution
We stand on the brink of a technological revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work, and relate to one another. In its scale, scope, and complexity, the transformation will be unlike anything humankind has experienced before.
We think within the interconnecting spaces of design, innovation, business and the environment.
The OrbTank's core team members emerged from the leading global organisations and have extensive experience in innovation, sustanability, design and business.
We attempt to understand the planetary boundaries and the opportunties of change to enable better businesses that won't impact the environment like they do today.
We employ systems thinking to go beyond what meet the eye, see how things are interconnected and create viable solutions that address root casuses rather than merely treat symptoms.
We make our ideas tangible early in the process, visualising and prototyping them, to communicate and test them out with people and organizations.
We are in close contact with the most innovative tech companies to ground our ideas and to ensure feasibility of our concepts.
Kenya field trip — investigating the implications of the plastic bag ban in Kenya.
Environmentally positive ban on plastic bags was introduced about a year ago in Kenya. We are going on a field trip to investigate how the initiative is affecting everyday's life of regular people and the effect it is making on local business of different scale. After the filed trip we are going to make a report and a series of blog and social media posts to tell a story of what we will see and suggest solutions for the problems we will identify.
