Today, we are proud to announce that GreenPlaces has raised an additional $4M in funding led by Felicis with participation from Bull City Ventures to help us make sustainability achievable for all businesses.
While sustainability has become an expectation, and even a requirement, for most businesses, the vast majority lack the resources to reach their sustainability goals.
Tools available in the market today are built for world’s largest companies, but nearly 73% of global emissions come from businesses outside the Fortune 500. And when global giants like Microsoft, AT&T or JP Morgan set ambitious climate goals – it’s their service providers, partners and vendors who are on the hook.
But products built for Fortune 500s like Wal-Mart or Goldman Sachs aren’t going to work for most SaaS companies. Likewise, they also won’t work for law firms, logistics companies, hotels, or restaurant chains.
These tools are too labor-intensive and difficult for most businesses to adopt.
The companies we serve make up the vast majority of global emissions, and they need an easy-to-implement solution that does more than generate a carbon footprint. They need a platform that creates personalized recommendations on what to do, and tools to engage employees and customers – they need all the things a sustainability team would do.
Here’s where we’ve focused:
- GreenPlaces is the easiest sustainability platform to implement: the system comes pre-built with over 400 different integrations to give business full visibility into emissions to reach investor-grade reporting standards seamlessly
- Personalized guidance & help: we give clients personalized recommendations to reduce their footprint, maximize their sustainability impact, and help implementing various ESG requirements
- Communication & engagement support: talking about sustainability is hard – we help with shareable content, personalized sustainability webpages, and we even connect with internal tools like Slack to make sharing progress seamless
This isn’t a carbon accounting tool – it’s a sustainability one-stop-shop and we’re here to help businesses reach their sustainability goals without the headache.
