Mushrooms as a #ClimateTech solution? Yup. ￼ Mycelium-based products fit into nearly all climate sectors, ranging from plant-based meats (looking at you My Forest Foods, Meati Foods), to packing materials (hey Evocative) & everything in between!
Ever heard of Mycelium?
We hadn’t either.
According to Work Week’s Keep Cool Report, Mycelium is the living root structure of mushrooms. More than 90% of plants depend on it to supply them with crucial nutrients and defend them from disease.
Essentially, without Mycelium all ecosystems would fail. So why not harness this as the conjunction of nature-based solutions and ClimateTech?
Mycelium-based products fit into nearly all climate sectors, with innovative solutions ranging from plant-based meat alternatives (looking at you My Forest Foods!), to packing materials (hey Ecovative!) and everything in between!

A critical obstacle in the battle against food waste is the inefficiency in the cold chain system — the process that ensures perishable goods are kept at optimal temperatures from harvest until they reach the consumer.
Technologies like food tracking and predictive analytics are being utilized to combat the annual waste of 1.3 billion tons of food, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and contributing to global sustainability.
Climate Robotics, a subfield of Climate Tech, uses AI-powered robots to scale climate action by automating tasks like planting trees or monitoring coral reefs, thus accelerating the implementation of climate response strategies and helping societies adjust to new climate realities.
