How Slingshot is working towards a greener and more sustainable future...

“There are no passengers on spaceship earth. We are all crew.”

Marshall McLuhan, Philosopher

We believe that everyone has a part to play in ensuring that our world is a safe and sustainable place to live, whether that be environmental or economical sustainability. Tech companies can be massive contributors to the decline of the environment:

“Researchers in 2020 highlighted that up to 3.5% of carbon emissions will come from information processing and transmission”

“Once you start down the dark path, forever it will dominate your destiny”

Our data-based and spatial-optimised solutions can allow us to save tropical ecosystems and the species which inhabit them.

The IoT will generate

What is Dark Data?

Data that is not used to derive insights or decision making.

 

  • Up to 52% of all information an organisation produces and stores is dark data.
  • Dark data alone caused the release of about 6 million tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere in 2020. 

 

Slingshot Simulations works to bring Dark Data into the light through insights.
