Everimpact, a climate tech startup headquartered at Station F (Paris), has picked up €1.7 million seed funding. The investment round was led by Motion Ventures and saw participation from international organisations, transport companies and impact investors.
The investors include EU Commission (Climate-Kic and EIT Urban Mobility), Asian Development Bank (ADB Ventures), Transport Companies’ VCs and CVCs (Wilhelmsen, Transport Capital, IMC Ventures, MOL PLUS, Blue Star Group), and Impact investors (Rainmaking Impact).
Everimpact will use the funding to expand carbon monitoring and monetisation capabilities in cities at a global level. Also, it plans to expand the shipping measurement solution currently trialed on a Mitsubishi Corporation Group vessel and available through an Early Adopter Program.
Mathieu Carlier, CEO and Founder at Everimpact said: “Cities and high emitters have a crucial role to play to accelerate the transition to a low carbon world. Thanks to Everimpact’s innovative carbon tracking system, they are now able to move away from estimates to monitor their carbon footprint in real time, identify the best opportunities to cut emissions, and access new funding for their decarbonisation projects. We’re excited to partner with leading global organisations and investors to accelerate our development.”
Nicklas Viby Fursund, General Partner of Motion Ventures said: “Bringing together those from the public and private sector with the most influence on maritime and global supply chains is unprecedented. The pairing of the engineering collaboration and strategic capital is not just a milestone for Everimpact but a proof point for a consortium approach to innovation.”
Founded by UN execs!
Everimpact was founded by former UN execs – Alain Retière, Jan Mattsson and Mathieu Carlier in 2015 in Paris. From setting up the first UN satellite agencies, capturing data for over 50 presidential elections, to advising the Green Climate Fund, they have managed complex projects on the most challenging global issues.
It measures emissions precisely and in real time. This game-changing, certified data empowers cities and businesses to identify reduction opportunities and finance them through trusted carbon markets.
Measures GHG emissions accurately
Everimpact’s carbon Monitoring, Reporting, and Verification (MRV) platform allows cities and organisations to measure GHG emissions more accurately and in real time, thanks to satellite, ground sensors, and AI data.
Also, the company certifies carbon emissions and sequestration data to allow cities and industries to better identify reduction opportunities and access carbon finance to fund projects with a demonstrable climate impact.
The startup is already working with the cities of Dijon (France) with EDF and British cities in partnership with BT to monitor and monetise their emissions. This will help the shipping industry accelerate its decarbonisation while complying with significant changes in its environmental regulation.
