Carbon13 and Maritime UK joined forces on an eight-month program supporting people to launch highly scalable and investable ventures for a net zero future.
Accordingly, the partners launch the Carbon13, the Venture Builder for the Climate Crisis.
The eight month programme supports extraordinary individuals to launch highly scalable and investable ventures – and the maritime industry is one of the target sectors. Each venture that is built and invested in must have the potential to reduce CO2e emissions by ten million tonnes. Collectively Carbon13 aims to reduce emissions by 400 million tonnes, the equivalent to the UK’s current annual emissions. Maritime’s role in this effort is crucial and exciting.
The partners look for talent and people committed to reduce emissions through a venture.
According to UK Maritime
"Carbon13’s programme provides you with everything you need to build a venture from scratch. We help you build a value proposition that both maximises its potential to reduce emissions and can serve customers at scale."
The UK Maritime adds that the construction of a startup will reduce emissions by ten million tonnes means that in practice your startup needs to help 100 million consumers reduce their footprint by 1%, or 10m customers by 10%.
"Whether it is shipping, ports, services, engineering or leisure marine industries, all of these niches are plenty big enough to develop and support ventures that can have this kind of impact, and beyond."
