TERRAVERA connects the problems businesses have with insight and knowledge from academia. We also create digital tools to find the answers to these issues by modeling sustainability.
We are a non-profit technology foundation founded in 2020. We are on a mission to represent true sustainability by modeling the world as it is. We work together to make sustainability insights accessible, comprehensible and transparent. We create competitiveness for businesses by documenting how sustainable their products and services are. Fact based, objectively and including the entire value chain.
- The world needs a rapid green transition, and we have no time to lose. We need more knowledge about what is sustainable. NTNU and Terravera Foundation have therefore established a research collaboration to make real and objective sustainability measurements possible. This is ground-breaking work, says Anne Borg, rector at NTNU.
