A social network so people can rate, review and compare businesses on a scale of sustainability.

Ikomaps is a social network to let you rate, review and compare products, services and businesses on a scale of sustainability, aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

 

For example, if you want to book a hotel and one has a 2 Green Star rating and another hotel has 5 Green Stars, you can now easily make a better choice.

 

Cities consume 78 per cent of the world’s energy and produce more than 60 per cent of greenhouse gas emissions. Their built environments contribute to 36% of global energy use and 39% of energy related carbon dioxide emissions every year.

 

A growing number of green projects and initiatives are forming across every country, however what’s missing is the infrastructure to connect these isolated projects.

 

The Ikomaps Advantage

1. See greener options and points of interest at your current location

2. Rate, review and compare businesses based on sustainable development goals

3. List businesses according to a Green Star rating

 

The Green Star rating is calculated using criteria which are 

1. Industry and location specific

2. Aligned to supporting low and zero carbon technologies and regenerative development goals

3. Designed by Green Building Councils and other industry experts.

 

Data and insights collected by Ikomaps can be used in collaboration with local businesses and city councils to develop regeneration plans across cities everywhere.

 

Our goals 

1. Change consumer buying behaviour. Ikomaps lets people make better decisions, quickly

2. Accelerate adoption of green business practice. Ikomaps encourages businesses to increase their Green Star rating to remain competitive 

3. Support local communities and culture by connecting people, projects and businesses commited to protecting our planet

4. Build green infrastructure. Retrofitting and optimising their built environment saves businesses money and energy.

 

To achieve these goals, we need your help.

 

Ikomaps is your platform to design your city the way you want it to be, one rating at a time. Your ratings and reviews make businesses compete and accountable in a values driven network. Ikomaps gives people the power and responsibility of co-creating their city. The only way to ensure healthier cities and a healthier planet is to use our voice and have our say, every step of the way because participation is key for a healthy ecosystem.

 

When we travel, we tend to make unsustainable travel choices because we don’t know where to fill our water bottle, or we didn’t know that animal sanctuary secretly supports poaching.  With Ikomaps, you can easily see the cafes, sights and things to do that best support the local community and its environment. You can trust the information because it is curated by the locals who are passionate about the destinations they call home. These experiences make our travels so much more meaningful!

 

In Australia, the quality of life we experience in our cities is unequivocally better than ever before. Combined with rapid urbanisation, a growing population and the increasing threat of climate change raises the question, where to from here? What is the new dream? The new vision of a city of the future?

 

Ikomaps requires $150,000 which will fund product development and designing the green star rating system.

MEDIA RELEASE

WE NEED A PLAN B. IKOMAPS IS THE NEXT TRIPADVISOR!


Coinciding with COP26 and in partnership with Ready Fund Go, Ikomaps is a bold campaign to fund a social network so people can rate, review and compare businesses on a scale of sustainability.


We are approaching tipping points in our natural systems, meaning irreversible changes in the Earth’s conditions which humanity cannot survive, are imminent. World leaders in bed with black gold are letting money, power and politics get in the way of common sense. Citizens of the planet must rise above politics.


We need to be working on Plan B in case the world’s leaders fail to reach the targets in time to safeguard our future. 


At Ikomaps we ask the question, ‘What if we had a list ranking every single business on the planet on a scale of sustainability, then cut off the bottom 5 percent?’ We believe if enough people agree, this idea can become reality. 


To achieve our goal, we need your help.


Ikomaps gives people the power and responsibility of co-creating their city, one rating at a time. Young people have proven they have the will to drive change and Ikomaps is their platform to do so. Our planet is infected with a cancer that is killing it slowly. We need to work together and cut out the businesses contributing the most to global emissions.


Your ratings and reviews make businesses compete and accountable in a values driven network. Data and insights collected by Ikomaps can be used in collaboration with local businesses and city councils to develop regeneration plans across cities everywhere.


The only way to ensure healthier cities and a healthier planet is to use our voice at every level, because participation is key for a healthy ecosystem.

IKOMAPS IS THE NEXT TRIPADVISOR! WHAT HAVE WE GOT TO LOSE?


Today in partnership with Ready Fund Go, Ikomaps is launching a bold crowdfunding campaign to create a social network so people can rate, review and compare businesses based on the United Nations SDGs. 


At Ikomaps we ask the question, 


What if we had a list ranking every single business on the planet on a scale of sustainability, and then cut off the bottom 5%?


We believe that if enough people agree, this idea can become a reality. 


To restore the health of the planet, we need to get to the root cause of the climate problem. Our planet is infected with a cancer that is killing it slowly. All the green initiatives in the world are not enough to save it. We need to cut the cancer out. 


World leaders in bed with the black gold, are letting money, power and politics get in the way of common sense. Citizens of the planet must rise above politics. We cannot sit and wait any longer for the world’s leaders to save us.


To achieve our goal, we need your help.
