In Your Inbox: How one company is making ecommerce more sustainable; Hydrogen and zero emission flight is attracting big capital
This week, Damian Estrada, the Founder and CEO of Mandatum, discussed what he is working on. Mandatum is turning e-commerce’s unsustainable inefficiencies into money for the Amazon Rainforests, savings for shoppers, and profits for brands. Below are the key takeaways from the conversation.
We will have zero-inventory virtual and brick and mortar showrooms for durable goods, where shoppers will decide the products they want and place the build-to-order order on their cell phones or in-store screens. Brand creators will delivery direct to the consumer. Marketplaces and retailers will continue having the immediacy approach mostly for fast-moving consumer goods, and the right amount of inventory to serve durable goods orders that will demand immediate delivery. The catch is that those products will have a high premium when compared to the prices available via Mandatum.

ZeroAvia, raised a $37.7M Series A, backed by some big investors, including Breakthrough Energy Ventures, Amazon Climate Pledge Fund, Shell Ventures, and Ecosystem Integrity Fund. ZeroAvia is building a hydrogen-powered, zero-emission powertrain for commercial air travel.
Electrification of aviation will gradually gain market share, primarily in the form of hybrids. As this shift occurs, other pieces of the ecosystem will play a big part – from power density of batteries to hydrogen production and infrastructure. For long term success, collaboration is needed, especially between innovators, airports, and utilities.
