Fedobe, an eCommerce company specializing in Magento hosts OI. OI is an initiative that promotes sustainability and the concept of circularity in eCommerce. Businesses that adhere to the Global Goals in either their product or services are offered mature eCommerce modules for free. Whenever there is customization required, the customized modules are brought back to the open source community (after agreement with the businesses), to create a network of sharing, thus promoting circularity in technology. OI is supported by a panel of Sustainability experts, or Ovators (Open accelerators for innovation and sustainability), who are able to provide advice on SDG adherence, investment readiness, technical feasibility, sustainability design & communication, long-term impact analysis amongst other things.
