Sensoneo Smart Waste Management solution has been awarded the “Solar Impulse Efficient Solution” Label, rewarding profitable solutions to protect the environment. The process included an assessment performed by external independent experts based on verified standards. Sensoneo is thereby joining the #1000solutions challenge, an initiative by the Solar Impulse Foundation to select solutions that meet high standards in profitability and sustainability and present them to decision-makers to fast-track their implementation.
Following the success of the first solar flight around the world, Bertrand Piccard and the Solar Impulse Foundation has launched the second phase of their action: selecting #1000solutions that can protect the environment in a profitable way, and bringing them to decision-makers to help them adopt more ambitious environmental targets and energy policies.
“Protection of the environment would become a reality only if it was perceived as economically viable and requiring no financial or behavioral sacrifices. Today, efficient solutions exist that can boost economic growth, while at the same time reducing our impact on the planet.“Bertrand Piccard
Protection of the environment combined with financial viability
The aim of this initiative is to encourage the adoption of more ambitious environmental targets and fast-track the implementation of these solutions on a large scale. To receive the “Solar Impulse Efficient Solution” Label, Sensoneo was thoroughly assessed by a pool of independent experts according to 5 criteria covering the three main topics of Feasibility, Environmental, and Profitability. All labeled solutions are part of the #1000solutions portfolio that will be presented to decision-makers in business and government by Bertrand Piccard, Chairman of the Solar Impulse Foundation.
Deployment of the solution by both cities and private businesses enabled the customers to get remarkable benefits:
- Optimization of collection routes, frequencies, and vehicles loads resulting in 63% savings on waste collection costs and 67% savings on time
- On-time waste collection resulting in a 30 – 63% reduction of CO2 emissions compared to the standard method
- Real-time waste monitoring results in 97% accuracy on actual waste production
- Automatic real-time tracking and recording of all actions made during the waste collection process resulting in 96% accuracy on transparent waste streams
The average return on investment (calculated based on the average size and type of the deal) is 1.5 years.
