We believe the most critical pathways to decarbonize the world fall into three categories: Materials, Energy, and Mobility. The materials industry accounts for 23% of greenhouse gas emissions in the United States. Both traditional manufacturing, reliant on petrochemicals, and the linear model of production/consumption/disposal has led to vast amounts of non-biodegradable waste.
Newlab is exploring new technologies for the creation and management of materials like: textiles, food, built environment, and energy. We are not merely seeking substitutes, but rather working towards a future where materials contribute to a circular, regenerative global ecosystem. Simultaneously, supply chains become more resilient as manufacturers no longer need to rely on native materials, and our planet becomes healthier.
We’re more powerful when we work together. Join our open calls to address the planet’s greatest challenges alongside industry, government, and entrepreneurs.
