What gets
measured,
gets done.

In the anthropocene epoch, climate change is being accelerated by human related activities from burning of fossil fuel, intensive agriculture, urbanisation, deforestation and pollution resulting in extraordinary changes on Earth. To put it in context, between 5-14% (WEF) of carbon in the atmosphere is human related, of which 44% remains unabsorbed in the atmosphere (CICERO). And, two tenths of 1% of the Earth’s total carbon is above the planet’s surface, in land, sea and the atmosphere (Deep Carbon Observatory).

To support reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, CarbonLaces is building a pioneering results-based Climate Finance platform, bringing together AI and automation to provide the right action to reduce the environmental impact through the use of technology and trading with data and an eco-system of partners.

We are
Carbon Laces

Environmental impact attributed to climate change is only increasing. Yet, we are still faced with challenges of data not being available, in silos with a myriad of approaches that take time and effort. The opacity across the value chain from carbon creation to its mitigation and the adaptation to alternative means is in the coming years going to become the single most important issue. CarbonLaces is starting to address this enormous problem by building a results-based Climate Finance platform to:

  • Support funding programmes to achieve measurable results
  • Support local, national and global roadmaps to deliver measurable initiatives
  • Support the reductions in carbon emissions from cradle to grave and the atmosphere
  • Support policy to deliver the gaps
  • Support investment to make maximum quantified impact
  • Support climate and biodiversity initiatives with environmental goals

Sustainable measures like solar panels, wind turbines, EV charging stations, plant trees etc and other energy efficiency behaviour and investments need the rigours of measurement. These measurements will:

  • Ensure you have a full understanding of the base and where you can get.
  • Ensure a floor and enable measured improvements.
  • Ensure verified low carbon roadmaps
  • Create comparable factual data

We deliver a holistic approach where the emission can be measured, tracked and reduced.

The
Challenge

Businesses want to reduce their carbon footprint. But they lack reliable data to make the case for transformation based on return on investment. What cannot be measured, cannot be tracked and therefore cannot be changed with confidence.

Although there has been progress, we have a long way to go. Today:

  • Less than 30% of emissions data is voluntarily reported by businesses.
  • 80% of emissions are not being priced.
  • Half of the current emissions covered by carbon pricing initiatives are priced at less than $10 per ton CO2e, compared to a target of between $40 and $80 per ton for 2020 and $50-$100 per ton by 2030.
  • 68% of SDG (Sustainable Development Goals) data cannot be measured as there is no methodology or data to support it.

Our
Solution

CarbonLaces real-time results-based Climate Finance Platform creates a new category called ‘buildings as a hub of activity’ and recommends actions based on efficiency, behavioural changes and financing needs to mitigate emissions and adapt for positive environmental impact.

With a novel bottom-up hybrid approach to data, financial decision-making and trading is granular, quantified and rigorous.

Asset owners, managers, corporate and banks benefit from benchmarking and stress testing scenarios and measure climate actions based on the balance between the most efficient and highest impact de-carbonising attributions using the right data driven actions at the right time with diversified portfolios.

Communities and businesses know where they are and where they need to be tor a 1.5C world which makes financial sense as we ‘build back better’ in a post-Covid world

Why us?

We take a unique cross sector, bottom-up hybrid approach to climate action using our results-based Climate Finance platform.

  • Assess where the emission hotspots are in their value chain and beyond
  • Identify resource and energy risks in their supply chain;
  • Identify which leaders and laggards in terms of their sustainability performance from suppliers to partners
  • Balance energy efficiency and cost reduction opportunities in their value chain;
  • Implement sustainability initiatives with environmental goals
  • Improve the energy efficiency of products; and
  • Positively engage with employees to reduce emissions from business travel and employee commuting.

Automate

Make emission tracking easy and understand it in the context of whole emissions in real time or near real time by automating billions of data points

Aggregate

Get a global view, but get the granularity you need to quantify and incentivise by truly start to shift suppliers, employees, energy providers

Action

Know your cap and decarbonize based on a local, national and global urgency using a balance of cost and efficiency for maximum environmental impact

The coronavirus pandemic shows what one can expect in a climate emergency. Voluntary, noncontinuous data has failed to pre-empt significant changes in risk levels to business, causing massive disruptions.

Similarly, there is a lack of harmonised data for non-financial risk assessment and action for environmental and societal impact.

CarbonLaces provides the breakthrough that business has been looking for in the quest for data.
