Unbox your creativity!

We are looking for ideas for solution to decrease carbon footprint of manufacturing, industrial processes as well as for products throughout their entire value chain. The challenge is open to students and young employees (max 5 years career) and the idea-team creator must have full ownership of the idea.

Each team must consist of 3-5 people (no less –no more).We are not looking for fully elaborate business plans, ready prototypes or ideas that are already being commercialized. We are instead looking for something new, something that could help us in shaping the future evolution of our business while decreasing carbon footprint and environmental impact.

However, you don’t need to have an idea to join in the platform. You can join, get inspired, look for incomplete teams needing your skills and find your partners in this adventure. Everyone, whatever the background, is more than welcome to be part of the change.
