CarbonChain helps companies automate the accounting of their carbon emissions. Most large companies need to account for their carbon emissions to 1) Avoid financial penalties 2) Access cheaper financing 3) Manage stakeholder requirements for carbon disclosure. We currently focused on the extractive industries (i.e., Metals & Mining, Oil & Gas, and Agriculture) and logistics industries, which are responsible for over half of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions.
We’re a team of engineers and sales leaders who previously led supply chains for Amazon in Europe covering 8 countries and $2B in monthly spend. Our team founded several software & data startups and built backend systems for UBS. Finally, we have market expertise in Oil & Gas and mining as consultants for BCG and Rio Tinto. We were part of the Y Combinator Summer 2020 batch, and have recently completed our seed fundraising round.
We are continuously improving CarbonChain’s methodology to model greenhouse gas emissions of assets and transport along Oil & Gas, Metals and Minerals, and Agricultural supply chains
