A challenge to sustainability by serial entrepreneurs!

global sustainability
Sustainability refers to sustainability, and it covers a wide range of fields, including the environment, human resources, and circular economy. As the graph below shows, the areas that require urgent action are mainly climate change, which ranks high in carbon dioxide emissions, and agricultural innovation.
“*Climate Tech*” and “*Agritech*
As the saying goes, technology is essential to solving problems, and technological innovations that tackle climate change and agricultural innovation are needed.
Domestic and international startups working in these fields are truly *heroic challengers* striving to respond to the world’s crises. As the situation changes rapidly, we believe that facilitating access to sustainable solutions is an urgent issue.
Climate Watch, the world resource institute
This is a graph showing global GHG (greenhouse gas) emissions. The fields of energy and agriculture are ranked high, and it is considered that there is an urgent need to respond to these fields, and a large amount of investment is being concentrated in these fields.
*Database platform by global team*
Sustina Seed Co., Ltd. (Ginza, Chuo-ku, Tokyo, Representative Director and CEO: Yuko Nakahata), a Tokyo-based startup born in June 2021, *
A global database of problem-solving products specializing in the sustainability field*
is building. Our team members are diverse, with various origins and residences in Japan, the Philippines, Germany, and Singapore, and each key member is a serial entrepreneur with a global background.

We want to create a system that *allows today’s children and young people to improve the world of the future when they grow up*.

The platform’s basic language was designed in English, as issues in the sustainability field are common throughout the world and their resolution is an urgent need.*
Start-up companies with solutions to sustainable issues from around the world participate and register*
It is considered possible to do so. In the future, we will continue to support sustainable problem-solving companies and *excellent solutions*
We are actively considering the use of data analysis and AI in order to provide easy access to.
To improve the future of children and young people
*Challenge to achieve both sustainability and profitability* Generally speaking, social good and profitability are not
proportional, and for this reason many organizations operate as NPOs. However, Sustina Seed is incorporated as a corporation. In other words, if there is no profit, the company cannot survive. So why are we taking on this difficult challenge? One of the reasons is * We are at a market turning point*.

From April 2022, prime listed companies will be required to disclose non-financial information in their securities reports, and
sustainability is attracting increasing attention in Japan. Also, the media frequently*
has become more popular, and public awareness is increasing. Many startups have found business opportunities in this situation and are entering the sustainable field, but on the other hand, many companies are looking for ways to solve problems.*
Issues where awareness of outstanding startups working to solve sustainable issues is low and sustainability improvements are not efficient*
there is. At Sustina Seed, we wanted to challenge that gap.
