The goals of decarbonization and the circular economy are two sides of the same coin. We cannot achieve one without the other, and both are vital to a sustainable and just future for humanity.
However, just a few years ago it was difficult to find actionable tools for businesses and consumers to reduce emissions and waste. But thanks to pioneering entrepreneurs like Lubomila Jordanova and Jamie Crummie, ways to measure and reduce our carbon and material footprint are now within reach.
Jordanova is the founder and CEO of Plan A, a AI-based carbon accounting tool This helps companies to measure, reduce and report on CO2 emissions. So far, Plan A has built a 100-strong team of leading scientists and developers, won big-name clients like BMW and the European Commission, and claims to have 5 million tons of carbon under its management.

Crummie operates in a very different market and is the co-founder of the sustainable food app Too Good To Go allows consumers to buy unsold groceries at restaurants and retailers. It is currently the world’s largest surplus grocery marketplace, active in 17 countries, with over 75 million registered users and 135,000 active grocery businesses. The app claims to have saved over 200 million meals.
Both companies entered the market in the mid-2010s, at a time when climate technology received only a fraction of the funding it does today. Despite an unfavorable investment landscape, both startups have weathered their respective challenges and positioned themselves for impressive growth.
At next week’s TNW conference, Jordanova and Crummie will take the stage to discuss their respective paths and ways in which they are successfully making measurable impact within a for-profit business model.
So if you are an entrepreneur looking to start a startup or scale your existing business, you definitely shouldn’t miss this talk! The future of the planet could depend on it.
