Climatesolver.org is a climate innovations portal developed by WWF in order to strengthen the development and widespread use of technologies that can dramatically reduce carbon-dioxide emissions or increase access to energy around the globe.
Established by WWF Sweden in 2008, and introduced to South Africa in 2013 the inaugural awards were held in 2014. Rhino Wood was honoured to receive the climate solver award at a ceremony in Cape Town in late 2104.
The acknowlegement of an organisation such as the WWF further shows Rhino Wood's commitment to sustainable timber products. Please view the videos below.
One Year Later
WWF Climate Solver visited the three winners of the Climate Solver award one year down the line. The purpose of the visit was to see how these businesses had progressed since receiving their awards. With roughly 24 000 square meters of product in the market and an increase in production output Rhino Wood has grown tremendously in the past 12 months and is looking for further exciting growth opportunities in the near future.
