Slingshot Simulations announced a partnership with the Rainforest Trust on a new sustainability initiative at this month’s Internet of Things Solutions World Congress (IoTSWC) in Barcelona – with immediate results.
Slingshot Simulations, the software-as-a-service (SaaS) tech start-up, committed to saving an acre of rainforest land for every user that signed up to their free decision intelligence and digital twin platform at the IoTSWC event. In just three days, new user signups secured the protection of 121 acres of rainforest.
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 each user who signed up and saved an acre had the opportunity to have the photo taken to document and share their and their company’s commitment to sustainability. Alongside this, a replica LEGO model represented each acre saved as a green LEGO block.
Participating companies included: LEGO, OMG, Microsoft, Vodafone, Oracle, Dell Technologies, Esri and many more.
