Towards smarter & sustainable cities
As a Lean startup studio, Octree is specialized in digital transformation and pragmatic innovation strategy. These two approaches are naturally mobilized to serve our ecological values.
Smart cities must articulate effective change in the areas of consumption, building energy management, circular economy, mobility, and waste management to name a few.
Mobility & transportation
Transport represents a large part of our society’s CO2 emissions and many areas are still waiting for their evolution.
We provide our expertise within pragmatic applications to improve logistic transports or people’s urban mobility by taking into account the contextual particularities of each situation.
Among others, our carpooling application for events and leisure, Caroster, offers a simple and free way to organize carpooling for a party, a seminar, a sports event, a camp, a ski trip, or just anywhere. Caroster supports change towards sustainable and non-restrictive habits by mobilizing an underused resource in order to reduce its traffic: the car.
Waste management & recycling
Our waste is considered as, well… waste. But what if we considered it as a resource that could generate great wealth?
In the fields of recycling and upcycling, many solutions remain to be designed for the implementation of a truly circular economy.
We take part in this process by helping to structure data into ready-for decision-making simple visuals: by collaborating with Co-objectif 21 to launch the R-21 suite, a statistical waste monitoring tool for municipalities.
We also accompany Retripa, the leader of the recycling industry in French-speaking Switzerland, in its digital transformation.
It is no longer a secret that our buildings consume a great deal of energy for heating and cooling.
Insulating buildings is one solution, but monitoring them to better understand their consumption (in water, electricity, and gas) as well as their efficiency (in temperature and humidity) allows us to apply optimal solutions.
Thanks to the internet of things (IoT), it is now possible to monitor in real-time and continuously all the vital indicators of a building. With this knowledge, it is then possible to reduce waste and preserve resources.
