We help businesses to transition to a sustainable future and achieve long-term success by aligning commercial and impact incentives across the value chain. This is possible today through the power of partnership, enabled by cloud technology in an increasingly connected world.
Slow and cumbersome communications technology created a world of competition in which organisations were isolated, reactive and mostly process oriented. Good business meant stand-a-lone projects as 'corporate social responsibility'.
Mobile communications and the internet then enabled a world of connection in which organisations were better networked, more proactive and increasingly data driven. Good business meant data-driven decision making for sustainability.
Now, we are enabled by cloud technology and live in a platform world of partnership where organisations are more collaborative, systems-oriented and interdependent. Good business now means working across value chains for system-wide impact.
At Pineapple, we see ourselves as leading the charge for the power of partnerships in a creating a sustainable future. We are already making an impact across a range of transition system areas....
Net zero housing
Decarbonisation through social housing retrofit
Partnership between Places for People, Natwest, British Gas, Schneider Electric, Sero and Tallarna
Net Zero Housing Transition is critical in the fight against climate change, with emissions from homes making a large part of global carbon emissions. Due to failings in the market we are not able to operate at the scale required to address this challenge.
Pineapple is working across the industry to imagine a solution to solve this very important issue. Through a commercial partnership with Places for People, British Gas, NatWest Bank, Schneider Electric, Sero Technologies and Tallarna we are building leverage scale in order to change the dynamics of the social housing retrofit market. With an ambition to run the largest scale retrofit program in the UK we are on track to decarbonise over 50,000 homes in the coming years.
By doing this, we hope to form a global blueprint for delivering a ‘just’ net zero transition while improving the health and wellbeing of people and the built environment.
"Working with Pineapple has been instrumental in helping us to accelerate scale partnerships in Net Zero Transition and help to support this very important part of the market"
