We Connect The World's Changemakers

This film has been made possible by our friends at Lobo

Ubuntoo believes that the world's biggest environmental issues can be solved, not by large hierarchical institutions, but through grassroots actions by connected individuals.

So we set out to connect the world's changemakers, providing a digital gathering place for "the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels", who will emerge as the leaders of sustainability for our time.

We are a community of believers and achievers who achieve true breakthroughs from not just innovative business models and disruptive mindsets, but the new technologies and materials that turn ideas into reality.

Our Mission

To accelerate scalable sustainability solutions by providing a platform for global visibility and collaboration

Our platform connects innovators and industry leaders to collaborate on solutions and technologies in support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs).

As a (Pending) Certified B Corporation, Ubuntoo is committed to using business as a force for good and to create a material positive impact on society and the environment.

B Corp Certification is considered the highest standard for socially responsible businesses.

Our Vision

Connect the World's Changemakers

At the core of Ubuntoo is our belief that all life on earth is connected. The issues we face as a planet cannot be solved in individual silos. We must find and facilitate connections that make us more than the sum of our parts in order to drive truly sustainable change.

Our Initial Focus

Our initial focus is to promote solutions to end plastic pollution. Nonrecycled plastic waste impacts 7 of the UN SDGs. Future focus areas will go beyond plastic waste to include innovations addressing food, water, climate, agriculture, energy and other issues as outlined in the UN SDGs.

Our Guiding Principles

Principles trust



Ubuntoo does not get paid for innovation listings and will not permit agenda-based behavior. Our individual subscription-based business model enables us to remain neutral and unbiased. The solutions found on Ubuntoo are featured purely based on their merits.

Principles solutions



We focus on solutions, not the issues. The challenges we face as a global society are complex and no single solution can solve them all. It is the combination of many connected solutions that will drive sustainable change.

Principles collab



We believe progress depends on collaboration among key stakeholders, including those who consider each other competitors. Working together creates synergies necessary for the solutions of tomorrow.

Principles you



The Ubuntoo platform has been built for you, so together we can create positive impact. We are committed to driving the highest degree of transparency, open dialog and excellence. So please send us your input on what you like and, more importantly, ways we can make it better.
