Sustainable housing on a journey to zero
Finland-based Neste, who describes themselves as the world’s largest producer of renewable diesel and renewable jet fuel refined from waste and residues, ae on a ”Journey to Zero” and as part of that, they have launched a website of only sustainable accommodation options: Zerobnb.com.
Zerobnb explicitly wants to inspire Airbnb to add a new category for sustainable home options, after which they will get rid of Zerobnb.
The Zerobnb platform features selected sustainable listings from Airbnb, and when you choose an accommodation from Zerobnb’s list, you are re-directed to booking via Airbnb.
The idea for Zerobnb came, when Finish designer Robin Falck designed the Nolla Cabin for Neste (nolla = finnish for zero), designed to allow visitors have a zero-emissions holiday. However, when Neste tried to list the cabin on Airbnb, they couldn’t find a category for sustainable home option – and so, the idea for Zerobnb arose.
Zerobnb and Nolla Cabin promotes zero emissions and renewable energy, incl solar panels (7.1, /.2)
Zerobnb promotes the develoment of sustainable (digital) infrastructure and retrofit industries to increase ressource-use efficiency.
Rent from Nolla Cabin is donated to The Ocean Cleanup, who develops technologies to rid the world's oceans of plastic.
Zerobnb encourages large companies (Airbnb) to adopt & integrate sustainable practices (12.6).
