Better eco-value assessments – SLU Holding invests in Greensway Digital
"We strongly believe in the team at Greensway Digital, and see great opportunities for the company to grow in other industries as well, e.g. in the fields of electricity infrastructure and power transmission," says Henrik Landgren, business advisor at SLU Holding AB.
"Through SLU Holding’s investment in the company we can develop the solution into a full-scale commercial product that works for our customers. The solution has been found, but the important thing is to make this digital solution work for bigger operations and data volumes,” says Greensway’s CEO Olof Widenfalk.
The team behind Greensway Digital has extensive experience of environmental and nature-conservation issues within the forestry industry. A big need has been observed within private companies for measurement and follow-up of eco-values. There may also be a need to quantify measures taken in the field of biodiversity.
"When it comes to our digital solution, consumers should be able to trace details of our customers’ environmental considerations. The measures should be traceable all the way back to the forest. Thanks to our current digital solution our customers have great possibilities in this context,” Olof Widenfalk explains.
