Rubicon’s SmartCity technology listed in Fast Company’s World Changing Ideas Awards for 2021
Rubicon's smart city technology suite, RUBICONSmartCity, has been listed in Fast Company's World Changing Ideas Awards for 2021 in the AI & Data and Spaces, Places, and Cities categories.
The list honours the businesses, policies, projects, and concepts that are actively engaged and deeply committed to pursuing innovation when it comes to solving health and climate crises, social injustice, or economic inequality.
RUBICONSmartCity is a technology platform that helps city governments run faster, smarter, and more effective waste, recycling, and municipal fleet operations. RUBICONSmartCity helps city governments ensure every resident's trash and recycling is collected on their scheduled day, meaning no missed pickups. It also documents litter, bulky waste, and illegal dumping with photos, thus ensuring that these piles are cleaned up in a timely manner. It also reduces recycling contamination, so cities can sell their recyclable commodities for as much money as possible, and it reduces the cost of collection by ensuring trucks are taking the most efficient path to collect waste and recycling.
"I am thrilled that RUBICONSmartCity is being honoured in the AI & Data and Spaces, Places, and Cities categories for this prestigious Fast Company award," said Michael Allegretti, Chief Strategy Officer at Rubicon. "One of the overarching goals of Rubicon's smart city technology is to make neighbourhoods into greener and smarter places to live and work, and this recognition is further proof of how RUBICONSmartCity is making the world a better place, one community at a time."
Rubicon has won a number of industry awards so far in 2021, including Fast Company's signature awards franchise, the World's Most Innovative Companies, in which Rubicon ranked number six in the Enterprise category; the Business Intelligence Group (BIG) Innovation Awards; and the Capital Finance International (CFI) Best SaaS Smart City Solutions Award.
