One Planet Rating - advancing the growth of responsible tourism, looking to expand the team

We are happy to announce that one of the projects born out of an ideation process here at CongressEA is now taking its very first steps outside of CongressEA, as a standalone entity. This project is One Planet Rating and CongressEA will continue to support it in an advisory capacity.

One Planet Rating is a Ratings and Reward platform for the responsible tourism industry. Originally conceived as an innovative sustainability rating service targeting the financial sector, the project took a new direction after an extensive startup bootcamp in Gothenburg, Sweden run by the EU program The Climate Launchpad in August and September 2016. One Planet Rating is now in the market research phase that guides the parallel design and prototype phase. The company, working out of the UK and Sweden, is now looking to expand the team, specifically targeting web developers and design talent. Is it you we are looking for?
