Enabling sustainability with Krucial

Enabling sustainability with Krucial

Our Co-founder and CEO Allan Cannon recently pitched at New York Climate Week 2023, explaining to an audience that included international investors and First Minister Humza Yousaf the sustainability opportunities available using Krucial's resilient communications platform. Check out the below piece to find out more.

In the battle against climate change, the integration of digital technologies into remote locations for continuous data gathering, movement, and analysis, is paramount. Our approach optimizes actionable steps because if you can't monitor it, you can't manage it. Whether it's an asset or the environment, understanding is the first step toward affecting change.

One example of how Krucial enables technology-led action to increase sustainability is in aquaculture – the fastest growing food sector - which is globally expanding to meet the demands of a growing population. Predictions indicate that the demand for aquatic-sourced food will double by 2050, and operators are putting sustainability at the core of their plans. But offshore and hard-to-reach locations pose significant challenges for continuous environmental monitoring.

Connected Seafarm – driving sustainability in aquaculture

Krucial Connected Seafarm exists to solve exactly this problem. By offering a completely resilient, reliable private communications network anywhere on earth, it enables the latest IoT advancements to measure parameters ranging from dissolved oxygen to water temperature. This allows aquaculture farmers to take proactive measures to safeguard fish and the environment from changing conditions.

Our collaboration with Mowi serves as evidence of the effectiveness of our solutions. We've implemented Connected Seafarm, which integrates an array of sensors for monitoring local weather and water quality parameters, including dissolved oxygen, temperature, and salinity. This data is securely transmitted to a cloud-based storage and dashboard application. Here, it can be visualized and alerts set to ensure the data provides actionable insights for operators.

Expanding Applications

Our communications infrastructure can be applied to a host of other critical applications, including water monitoring or remote soil analysis to detect pollution events more quickly, ensuring swift intervention. 

The most significant challenges we face often hinge on data and information. United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, such as 6 (clean water and sanitation), 7 (affordable and clean energy), and 13 (climate action), become attainable when decision-makers access accurate, timely critical data. Regardless of the industry or geography, having a reliable data foundation is a necessity for driving improvements and crafting successful ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) strategies.

Here are the some of the ways Krucial can help you achieve your sustainability goals:

  • Continuous Data Access: Gain insights into operational inefficiencies, waste, emissions, and more, facilitating informed improvement strategies.
  • Regulatory Compliance: Ensure transparency over operations to meet regulatory requirements seamlessly.
  • ESG Planning: Attain a comprehensive overview of your estate and strategize on how to meet your sustainability goals.
