Slingshot Simulations Will Save Acres of Endangered Land With Rainforest Trust

How will Slingshot Simulations save acres?

Slingshot Simulations, the Leeds UK based tech start-up, have partnered with The Rainforest Trust. They have committed to saving an acre of rainforest per user sign-up at the Internet of Things Solutions World Congress (IoTSWC).

The company’s newly announced sustainability initiative allows users of Slingshot Simulation’s free decision intelligence and digital twin platform to secure the protection of rainforest land. Slingshot Simulations will save acres alongside leading industry members.

Slingshot lead the UK branch of the Digital Twin Consortium and will be exhibiting within their pavilion. They have also been awarded as one of the top 5 start-ups at the global conference.

The Leeds-based company are working alongside the Rainforest Trust, a conservationist organisation who aim to protect the forest land remaining in the tropics from deforestation.

Every acre saved protects the trees, natural landscape and, in turn, the species which inhabit them. This allows the tropical forests to remove CO2 from the atmosphere and contributes to a global Net Zero of carbon emissions.

In addition to the practical impact, IoTSWC attendees who create a free account with Slingshot at the global conference had the opportunity take their photo on the company stands’ photo booth. They could then document their company’s commitment to sustainability.

What do Slingshot Simulations and the Rainforest Trust think?

“Partnering with Slingshot gives us access to incredible computing power and expertise that allows us to rapidly analyze huge amounts of data. We use these analyses on a daily basis to identify areas around the world where establishing protected areas will provide the greatest benefit to threatened species”.
