"We are pleased to introduce our new and improved Newsletter! With the world entering uncharted territory, we are all adapting how we operate. This newsletter is part of Sustainary's effort to continue to support, engage with and foster community amongst our network of climate actors!

- Human Shojaee,
Founder & President
Given the rapidly changing world, it is important to Sustainary that we support sustainable solutions and initiatives as they work to accelerate the sustainable transition. That is why we are proud to launch the CloudHub, a new collaboration platform for sustainable and impact initiatives and businesses. The platform is centered around stories, ideas and commitment to sustainable principles. This first release allows you to find, connect and collaborate with sustainable startups around the world.

We will be updating the CloudHub regularly with new features, all designed to help you continue to develop your sustainable vision into solutions. 

Each newsletter, we will be selecting one of the members and showcasing how they are working to accelerate the transition to a sustainable future. This time, we have selected....
🔦Startup Spotlight!🔦
For centuries, people have been enjoying the hoppy taste of beer. While there has been an explosion of different craft beer companies in recent years, none are quite as unique as Science Brew. Founded by a team of passionate beer lovers from DTU, their beers don’t just taste good, they do good too! Their patented technology and commitment to having a circular production process is a pioneering approach to beer brewing. Their aim is to inspire and promote the use of sustainable techniques and innovative processes to revolutionise the brewing and fermentation industry. 
For more information, check out their profile on the Hub!
Coming soon...

Given the turbulent time we are in, we are working on ways to help elevate and share how we are continuing to work to implement sustainable solutions. One of the upcoming features of the CloudHub will be a section dedicated to your stories, launching with a series called "Navigating Crises", dedicated to sharing your stories of coping with the current and future crises and giving advice to other startups and impact companies. If you have a story to share, send us as an email!

Updates from Sustainary
Sustainable Fast Track UK winners announced!
It might not have been how we originally planned... but on March 24 we celebrated the Sustainable Fast Track UK Awards virtually! Throughout the day, finalists took part in virtual matchmaking with green investors and we shared messages from some of our planned speakers, and of course announced the winners! Each displayed innovative solutions and the greatest potential to utilise the UK to take their business global. Check out two of the winners below, with the other four featuring in the next newsletter!
Solatom is a Spanish company which designs, constructs and commercialises solar power plants to provide heat generation for industry, utilising a modular and transportable design allowing for a scalable solution for small, medium and large-scale installations.

The Eaternity Score allows consumers to understand the true environmental impact of their food. Using a precise environmental assessment including CO2, water, animal welfare and rainforest, the score is printed on the packaging and provide clear and universal guidance for consumers who wish to consume more sustainable. Eaternity believe that using the information they provide, it would be possible to reduce individual food-related emissions by 50%.
Wimao Technologies is a Finnish cleantech start-up operating in circular economy, aiming to break the “take, make and dispose” model. Their products incorporate hard to recycle waste, such as woods, paper and other organic waste, and mixed plastics into a versatile medium with many possibilities. Their patented solution requires less sorting, impurity reduction and, as a result, lower CO2 emissions - up to 4x less than virgin plastic.

Initiatives worth recognising:
Den Grønne Studenterbevægelse 

A collection of action-based climate actors who work to voice the concerns of students in the climate discussion. Like a choir, they unite from different backgrounds and study disciplines to share their vision of the structural and political changes required to accelerate the sustainable transition.

“Our generation refuses to carry the burden of a suffering world on our shoulders alone. That is why we transform our knowledge into massive collective action. We demand that our leaders listen. We keep on singing.” 
-Johan, Podcast Producer
