Sustainability enabler ecosystem

Luxinnovation has mapped areas in which companies can innovate to be more sustainable and identified sustainability enablers which can provide products, technologies, skills and solutions needed to achieve this goal.

A framework for sustainability through innovation

According to the United Nations, three main pillars underpin all sustainability work: people, planet and prosperity. The UN has also defined 17 sustainable development goals. They include dimensions such as clean water, clean energy and climate action, as well as goals related to economic growth, industry, innovation, peace and justice.

However, the step from the inner pillars and sustainable development goals to the daily activities of most companies can seem very lengthy. In order to translate these high-level foundations into concrete business functions where company executives can innovate in order to make their businesses more sustainable, Luxinnovation has published the study Sustainability framework: Areas in which businesses can become more sustainable.

Overview of sustainability enablers

Finding and adopting the right products, services, solutions and technologies can help companies innovate to become more sustainable. Luxinnovation has produced a mapping of Luxembourg sustainability enablers covering well over 400 organisations. The mapping, based on data from May 2023, presents a number of technology providers who can help companies innovate in order to become more sustainable. It also covers product and service providers, investors, technology providers, investors and consultants, accelerators and institutional enablers, certification organisations and research and testing centres. They can be filtered according to sustainability topics, key technologies, targeted markets and geographical location.

For each entity covered in the sustainability enablers mapping, the final tool provides brief descriptions of their expertise in the field of sustainability, as well as links to their websites. The aim is to provide the specific knowledge about which companies can be contacted to find the solution or expertise needed.
