The business of climate – and carbon management – can be overwhelming. Let's support each other on our reduction journeys.

If there’s one thing that we’ve learned since we started digging into carbon data, it’s that it all comes down to collaboration. With your team. Your investors. Your supply chain partners. The world.

And what better way to stir up collective climate effort than during COP26?

1. Get your finances in order

We are at COP26 to show how our tool can help finance organisations measure their carbon footprint effectively, as part of the Tech For Our Planet challenge, organised by the UK Cabinet Office and Public. We've partnered with French investment bank Bpifrance and its two portfolio companies Orange and Openclassrooms to demonstrate how financial organisations can reduce emissions collaboratively across company borders.

📽 Watch our pitch

Our big presentation (yes, big, on the IMAX screen) is on 11 Nov from 6 to 8pm. You can tune in here.

💰 Learn how to embark on your climate journey

If you're a financial organisation, collecting your entire portfolio’s carbon data doesn't come easy. Here’s the 101 guide to start your carbon reduction journey.
