sustainabill in Copernicus-Incubator aufgenommen

Satellite information have huge potential to ensure truly sustainable supply chains. We have been selected to join the Copernicus Incubator Programme – a programme which supports the most innovative and commercially promising business applications based on Copernicus data and services. Using Copernicus data for remote data analysis will allow us to automatically validate supplier self-information and assess sustainability risks. 

We will develop an open interface to integrate satellite data for remote data analysis. Via the interface, Copernicus data and processed satellite data from other start-ups and organisations can be integrated directly into the sustainabill platform.

More information to the Incubator Programme can be found here.

Wir freuen uns auf die Zusammenarbeit mit Humanity United

We are delighted to announce that we have been selected by Humanity United for a grant to strengthen Social Lifecycle Assessments in global Supply Chains. Humanity United is a foundation dedicated to bringing new approaches to global problems like human trafficking, mass atrocities, and violent conflict. Through this grant, we will use our sustainabill cloud platform to discover facilities in high-risk areas and measure the happiness of workers. We are especially proud to collaborate with Humanity United on our vision for making supply chains transparent and sustainable.

Throughout the project, we will be working closely with industry and service partners. Right now, we are excited to partner up with the award-winning ethical trade consultancy Impactt, which specialises in improving labour conditions and raising productivity in global supply chains in a way that benefits brands, sites, and workers alike. Our cooperation with Humanity United and Impactt, both of whom promote the social dialogue and with expertise in understanding human rights, gives us the opportunity to not only learn from our partners, but also to further grow and shape sustainabill towards having a meaningful impact on every individual involved in the supply chain.

Klaus Wiesen, CEO of sustainabill, says “We are thrilled to start the project and take social assessments to the next level. Creating a team of experts from all spectrums involved in the supply chain offers our innovation the chance to have a tangible impact on people’s lives.” At sustainabill, we feel that specifically combining the needs and wants of the diverse stakeholders within a supply chain, from business to worker, creates a new advantage for industry by at the same time improving labour conditions. We want to bridge this gap. Collaborating with Humanity United brings us one step closer to this goal and we couldn’t be more excited to start.

Gründung der sustainabill GmbH

Am 3.5.2017 wurde die Gründung der  sustainabill GmbH vollzogen. Wir freuen uns, mit insgesamt fünf Gesellschaftern ein hoch motiviertes Team auf die Beine gestellt zu haben. Während Klaus, Christoph und Thorsten im Kölner Büro sitzen, unterstützen Willem und Markus vom Standort München die weitere Unternehmensentwicklung. Wir alle sind fest entschlossen, Sustainable Supply Chain Management auf eine neue Ebene zu heben.

Start des EXIST-Stipendiums

Seit dem 1.3.2017 beziehen wir mit Unterstützung vom Wuppertal Institut das EXIST-Gründerstipendium. Die Förderung über das EXIST-Stipendium ermöglicht es, dass wir uns während der kommenden zwölf Monate voll auf die Entwicklung unseres Kernprodukts und des Geschäftsmodells konzentrieren können.
Gleich am ersten Tag hat unser Team einen weiteren kleinen Meilenstein erreicht: sustainabill wurde in das Bootstrapping-Programm des Kölner Incubator „Startplatz“ aufgenommen, wodurch wir zu einem sehr günstigen Tarif Büros am Mediapark und damit im Herzen von Köln beziehen dürfen.
