Client Realdania | 2012-2016

The Sustainia100 publications are guides to 100 innovative sustainability solutions from around the world, published annually from 2012 to 2016 in partnership with Danish nonprofit organisation Realdania.

The challenge

When the first issue of Sustainia100 came out in 2012, the narrative of climate change and other global problems was focused around fear and risk. Our aim was to steer people away from feeling overwhelmed and start  looking at the smaller problems that can be solved with solutions that are already out there today.


The solution

Through a proven method of finding, researching, and vetting solutions, we tracked more than 4,500 of the most innovative and sustainable solutions from 10 sectors and from all over the world. From the 100 solutions in each publication, we identified key trends and insights on how the solutions are working to tackle global challenges, inspiring decision-makers to take action and citizens to embrace new and desirable lifestyles. The publications served as a shortlist for the annual Sustainia award, where one company from each category was recognised for their solution. The publications have been downloaded over 60,000 times.
