CarbonBuilt, developer of carbon dioxide-sequestering technology for manufactured concrete, is one of five organizations in the 2022 Sustainable Solutions Collaborative cohort under financial services giant Morgan Stanley. Along with a $250,000 award to increase the impact of their initiative, each organization enters a yearlong strategic collaboration with the Morgan Stanley Institute for Sustainable Investing, affording Morgan Stanley expertise, networks and resources to help achieve scale.
Joining Los Angeles-based CarbonBuilt in the cohort are ISeeChange, a New Orleans data and artificial intelligence specialist; Notpla, sustainable packaging startup, and OceanMind, a nonprofit promoting water pollution control law compliance, both of the United Kingdom; and, Teesasis, Nigerian elementary school content provider. “Each has the potential to scale and contribute to creating the type of systemic change needed to achieve a more sustainable future,” says Morgan Stanley Head of Global Sustainable Finance Matthew Slovik.
The Sustainability Solutions Collaborative was launched in 2020 to boost initiatives that would benefit from private industry or public sector partnerships. The Morgan Stanley Institute invites nominations from a broad cross section of sustainability thought leaders and practitioners. A rigorous selection process is geared to identifying innovations best poised for systemic impact and benefit from engagement with Morgan Stanley.
