Australia’s new online green bujlding marketplace has booked a mid-September launch date with equity crowdfunding veterans Birchal to fund growth and impact.
Building and construction is responsible for 39 per cent of all carbon emissions, and this Australian start-up is on a mission do something about it by making green building and architectural products and services easily available to a global market. "To get a net zero economy we need to build greener, faster," according to Planitree's founder, Jeremy Barnett.
By setting out to bring together the best solutions for sustainability and wellness, and making it easy to specify and purchase, Planitree aims to accelerate the adoption of green building technologies.
The Planitree platform is designed to help consumers and building professionals choose the best products from around the world and have them delivered at no cost to the planet through carbon offset – and with a tree planted for every transaction.
With Covid-19 disrupting business travel and promotional events such as trade shows, suppliers urgently need digital sales and marketing. Planitree is a low cost, low-risk solution to plug into the global green building market with virtual stores, and multi-site ordering and cross-border fulfilment.
