umdasch The Store Makers CALLS FOR IDEAS

Submit Your Ideas on Responsible Consumption Through Digitalisation!

At umdasch The Store Makers we think holistically about how to produce, trade and consume products and services in a more responsible way. We are looking for ways to reduce the over-exploitation of resources and the continuing increase in greenhouse gas emissions. We want to use digitalisation to support our aims.

What should you consider when applying?

Help us to create ideas on responsible consumption through digitalisation in the following fields of the retail industry:

  • Zero waste
  • Reducing waste
  • Multi-use
  • CO2 reduction
  • The circular economy
  • Sharing economy
  • Raising awareness
  • Reducing environmental impact

Please focus on concepts in relation to "Bricks & Mortar Retailing".

The official framework for this call is provided by the UN Sustainable Development Goals – especially SDG 12, “Responsible Consumption & Production”. We are addressing you – start-ups, innovators and all those sharing our vision of Responsible Consumption. Submit your ideas and solutions and receive the chance to realise them together with umdasch The Store Makers.

What are we already doing?

We have always looked to the future and have already given impulses to address the issue of sustainability; for example with the development of the “Liquid Dispenser” – a refillable, waste-avoiding system, or "GreenShelf" – a shelf with significantly reduced CO2 emissions during production.
