Sharing Platform

Peerby

Innovation image

Peerby is a pioneer in the sharing economy, as it supplies a local peer-to-peer sharing platform. Users can easily borrow or rent (Peerby Go) consumers products from peers who live nearby. When you post a request for borrowing or renting, the platform not only posts the request, it also alerts the one hundred closest Peerby users and asks them whether they own the item, and can make it available. Peerby saves you money, promotes social cohesion and enables the green life: as much as 1/8 of CO2 emissions are derived from the production and consumption of durable goods.
