Spowdi’s mission is to ignite a farming evolution for a positive global impact

There are about 500 million small-hold farms worldwide, employing up to two billion people. While small-hold farms use land and resources more efficiently, they are most susceptible to climate change and depleting water tables. This needs to change.

To make our food systems sustainable and feed a growing population, small-hold farmers must be able to grow more food with less water and move away from fossil fuels.

At Spowdi, we are igniting an agricultural evolution powered by the sun to enable farmers towards an independent and profitable livelihood.

Our mission aligns with the Global Goals formulated by the UN

In our efforts to provide fossil-free, regenerative farming, that is powered by the sun, Spowdi is empowering small-hold farmers towards improved livelihoods, better food production, greater independence and profitability. Our goals are aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals formulated by the United Nations, specifically:

Spowdi’s Smart Farming methods, together with our greentech innovation is proven to generate higher crop yield with significantly less water, compared with traditional flood farming methods. With that, we contribute towards a more efficient use of water.

The Global Goals Icon: Goal 7 - Affordable and Clean Energy

Affordable and Clean Energy

Spowdi enables small-hold farms and food producers, such as the fishing industry, to move and save water with help from the sun, thereby reducing dependencies on fossil fuels and moving towards clean and affordable energy.

Decent Work and Economic Growth

The Spowdi system enables farmers to become more profitable as their harvests increase while removing input costs such as diesel or other fossil fuels. The system also lessens the amount of manual labour, enabling farmers to free up time for other income-generating activities.

Climate Action

As the Spowdi system is powered solely by solar power, it has zero CO2 emissions. It enables farmers to become less fossil fuel dependent and to use their land more efficiently as harvests increase. Smart farming further lessens the stress on water resources as less water is required.

The Global Goals Icon: Goal 17 - Partnerships for the Goals

Partnerships for the Goals

To create a positive impact on people and the planet with new technology we need partners. At Spowdi we focus on partnerships for a sustainable ecosystem worldwide, with farmers, communities, NGOs, governments & organizations, to build trust for a greener tomorrow.

Emphasising the importance of small-hold farmers and addressing global challenges

At Spowdi, we hold a fundamental belief in highlighting not only the challenges we are facing, but also the individuals who serve as catalysts for change, the true impact generators. Celebrating International Days, such as World Water Day and International Day of Rural Women, provides a valuable platform to bring awareness to crucial themes and the importance of finding sustainable solutions for the future.
