As companies worldwide strive to fight climate change by curbing carbon emissions, they lack the tools for calculating and reporting organizational carbon footprints with the same confidence that they manage their financial transactions. Persefoni provides companies across all industries and sectors a detailed picture of their carbon footprint to improve understanding of how and where to systematically lower the environmental impact of operations. The Mesa-based company is the first to connect the entire sustainability disclosure and reporting cycle via an AI-native carbon footprint management platform. The platform integrates thousands of data points across the business value chain to calculate organizational carbon footprints in real-time, which to date has been a largely manual process. With advanced analytics and AI models built into the Persefoni platform, organizations receive data-driven insights that suggest optimization opportunities for future planning and forecasting.
At the recent SXSW Pitch® event, Persefoni was selected as the winner of the Enterprise & Data category, as the best technological innovation for its category-creating ClimateTech SaaS platform, which helps large enterprises and institutional investors calculate, report, and reduce their carbon footprints.
Launched in August 2020, Persefoni is rapidly accelerating the ClimateTech market segment as a leading provider for large enterprises and institutional investors seeking to better understand the most effective way to measure and reduce their carbon footprint. The company is already working with leading investors like global Private Equity firm TPG to manage the carbon footprint of its $85 billion dollar portfolio and is on track for significant expansion this year.
“We’re a diverse, global team bound by the common cause of fighting climate change, and we’ve brought together some of the best people from both the software and sustainability worlds,” says Kentaro Kawamori, CEO and co-founder of Persefoni. “What gets measured gets done, and Persefoni is continuing to build and equip organizations with the necessary tools for understanding, and ultimately reducing, the environmental impact of their operations.”
