Cityzenith has become a part of the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) Global Innovators community to support Cityzenith’s mission to decarbonize US cities.
The Global Innovators Community is a group of the world’s most promising start-ups and scale-ups that are at the forefront of technological and business model innovation.
Cityzenith CEO Michael Jansen said, “Our partnership with the World Economic Forum gives us a platform to have our voice heard, spread our message, and take advantage of more opportunities.
“WEF recognized that our technology and insight had a role to play in combating Climate Change, and now we can go further in helping governments and countries to decarbonize cities worldwide.”
Cityzenith CEO Michael Jansen said at the launch of the Clean Cities – Clean Future’ initiative: “We have to help the most polluted urban centers become carbon neutral, and we plan to do this by donating the company’s Digital Twin platform SmartWorldOS to key cities, one at a time, after every $1m raised. We’re able to do this because of the recent surge of investment as part of our $15m crowdfunding raise.
The latest participant to join this platform is Cityzenith, whose SmartWorldOS software platform can create virtual replicas of buildings and urban areas to track, manage and optimize carbon emissions and minimize environmental damage.
The partnership’s catalyst was Cityzenith’s ‘Clean Cities – Clean Future’ campaign as part of the ‘Race to Zero’ movement. Cities worldwide generate 70% of global carbon emissions and Cityzenith believes its SmartWorldOS can help building and property asset management groups, city planners, and developers move to carbon neutrality in the next ten years.
