WeWatt is a start-up company designing and producing cycling desks. Via this innovation, they want to self-power people, by turning human kinetic energy into usable power. Additionally, the cycling desks fight sitting disease by giving people energizing exercise in their daily life while travelling, working, meeting, reading or just relaxing. Patricia Ceysens, former Flemish Minister for Economy, Science and Innovation, is amongst the initiators.
The Shift helpt leden gebruik maken van het globaal kader van de UN Sustainable Development Goals om hun maatschappelijke ambities in kaart te brengen.
13. Climate action
By signing the COP21 engagement letter, we commit to take voluntary action to reduce environmental and carbon footprints. We implement this by setting targets to reduce our current own GHG emissions and/or energy consumption, while also collaborating in supply chains and at sectorial levels. We agree on the need for inspirational and meaningful global action and aligned messaging. We will act as ambassadors for climate action, focusing on solutions and economic opportunities. We will help raise public awareness. We will actively manage climate risks and incorporate them in decision making — not least to realize growth opportunities. We will take steps to implement effective strategies to strengthen not only our companies’ but also societal resilience.
