The Impact Measurement Certificate

GreenTech Innovation

It is now well-known that the environment impacts health; for instance, there are 7 million deaths worldwide each year attributed to poor air quality alone. The environment can contribute to the development or exacerbation of numerous chronic illnesses, many of which could be reduced or even prevented by changing our environmental exposure and behavior.

These environmental challenges significantly affect everyone’s health and represent a considerable cost for businesses – sick leave, absenteeism, loss of productivity… – as well as for public and political entities.

The consideration of environmental health is becoming a top priority, especially with the intensification of existing regulations and standards, incorporating the environmental dimension, and current events urging populations to be increasingly rigorous on these issues. Human health is also returning to the forefront of priorities, with health being taken into account in all decisions. It is therefore time to act and be proactive in response to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals – Meersens working towards SDG #3 Health and Well-being and SDG #11 Sustainable Cities.

The Google Startups for Sustainable Development 2023 impact measurement program highlights Meersens’ commitment to using technology to foster a more sustainable and healthier future. It is explicitly designed to enable startups to measure and report on their impact on the SDGs.

Here’s an overview of our impact:

👉 In 2023, we contributed to improving air quality on 6.9 million hectares and helped 14,000 individuals benefit from cleaner air, significantly reducing deaths related to chronic diseases.

👉 By 2030, our goal is to improve the health and well-being of 57,000 people across 35 million hectares. This is what drives us every day at Meersens! 💙

And this is just the beginning… stay tuned 👀
