About Everimpact

Something is broken in the global Climate Change Mitigation mechanism. Carbon Finance is disconnected with emissions reduction and sequestration measures and huge investments, technologies and methods are mandatory to reach global Carbon Neutrality objectives and keep Climate Change under the 1.5°C threshold set by the Paris Agreements.

Everimpact is a purpose driven company on a mission to protect our planet. We are a fast growing ClimateTech startup on a mission to make it easier for cities and businesses to measure their greenhouse gas emissions, identify opportunities to reduce their footprint, and finance needed investments. Long story short, our Climate Justice Engine combines satellite data, ground sensors, and AI into a SaaS platform to establish cities and businesses' carbon footprint. As a result, clients can identify reduction opportunities and access financing for their climate investments.

Everimpact has been selected by Google for its Startups’ first Accelerator program on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and recently won Shell’s New Energy challenge. It is working with several partners to deploy large scale and high impact projects starting with cities and the shipping industry. You will work closely with our customers and partners, large corporations such as EDF, British Telecom, Hitachi, Mitsubishi, Mitsui OSK Lines, Wilhelmsen, etc. Everimpact’s investors include international organizations such as the European Commission, the Asian Development Bank, Impact Investors, and several shipping VCs.
