Our Impact

Our Alliance is creating smart city governance

Our Initiatives

With the right technology and know-how cities can lead the way on solving pressing problems while making their communities more inclusive and resilient.

This program is focused on helping national and city leaders meet their emissions-reduction targets by creating an efficient, electric, and circular urban energy landscape.


Crowdsource Innovation

Based in Manaus, we provide a food traceability, distribution, and marketing platform connecting rural producers with consumers.

Our process delivers high-performance, chemical-free, decarbonized wastewater treatment by harnessing algae and phototrophic bacteria.

Our product, “Vitron,” is an artificial intelligence-based image recognition software that automates waste analysis to drive recycling revenues.

We create and manage smart stormwater systems, and our flagship concept captures and stores rainwater for rooftop gardens, terraces, and solarPV.

Get involved

We believe that progress happens by bringing together people from all walks of life who have the drive and the influence to make a positive change.
