How Slingshot is working towards a greener and more sustainable future

“There are no passengers on spaceship earth. We are all crew.”

Marshall McLuhan, Philosopher

We believe that everyone has a part to play in ensuring that our world is a safe and sustainable place to live, whether that be environmental or economical sustainability. Tech companies can be massive contributors to the decline of the environment: 

“Researchers in 2020 highlighted that up to 3.5% of carbon emmissons will come from information processing and transmission”

“Once you start down the dark path, forever it will dominate your destiny”

YodaStar Wars Episode V

The IoT will generate

> 1

Zettabytes of data

Of which

> 1 %

is estimated to be dark data


> 1 MN

tonnes of CO2 emissions

What is Dark Data?

Data that is not used to derive insights or decision making.


  • Up to 52% of all information an organisation produces and stores is dark data.
  • Dark data alone caused the release of about 6 million tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere in 2020. 


Slingshot Simulations works hard to bring Dark Data into the light through our insights.
