Uses WebApp to incentivise collaborative recycling & green consumption
Amazóniko uses innovative technology to educate and ease the recycling process in Bogotá. Through its digital platform, the enterprise educates app users with a comprehensive recycling toolkit and organises easy waste collection. Amazóniko’s point-based scheme rewards recycling by offering a growing catalogue of environmentally friendly products produced from the collected materials and discounts in associated brands.
The enterprise primarily targets increasingly environmentally aware citizens in Bogotá as app users, and actively works with associations of waste workers to extend formal employment opportunities and improve working conditions.
Ideco is a software development company responsible for developing the Amazóniko app and providing ongoing software support for its commercial use.
HubBog is a start-up incubator and accelerator that supported Amazóniko through its accelerator programme and to establish contacts.
The 2018 SEED Low Carbon Awards in Uganda, Colombia, Tanzania, India and Thailand were primarily supported by the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, and Nuclear Safety (BMU).
