The Traction Five: ESG (Carbon Capture & Carbon Accounting)

Let's figure this out together! During our work evaluating technologies that solve our clients’ most challenging needs, we come across many early-stage companies that surprise and delight us. Here are a few who have developed game-changing technologies in the areas of Carbon Capture & Carbon Accounting that we think are worth sharing, and could have a significant impact on your ESG goals. 

This week’s Traction Five:

1 Carbon Capture: This startup has developed a process to capture CO2 using zeolites, as opposed to amines which degrade or chemical processing which is expensive and complex.  Their cost-effective, scalable, and innovative approach also produces pure water which can be used to replenish the Earth’s natural supply.

2 Earthly Labs: Earthly Labs’ CiCi is a small-scale carbon capture solution specifically for the brewing and carbonated beverage space.  It efficiently captures and stores CO2 produced during the fermentation process then purifies it for reuse in the beverage-making process.

3 Deep Branch: Deep Branch’s solution captures CO2 and converts it into Proton™, a single-cell protein optimized for animal feed via gas fermentation.  They then partner to co-develop sustainable animal feed and products utilizing this Proton™ product.

4 Normative: Normative’s platform collects and calculates data on 100% of an organization’s carbon emissions, including upstream and downstream supply chain vendors, to provide a holistic view of environmental impact.  It reports on trends and hotspots, and allows modeling to determine initiatives with the greatest climate impact.  Normative also offers advisory services for analysis and stakeholder communication.

5 Persefoni: Known as the “ERP of Climate”, Persefoni’s SaaS platform measures, analyzes, forecasts, and reports on Scope 1, 2 and 3 frameworks.  It can benchmark 100% climate impact, compare to similar organizations, and perform climate trajectory modeling based on defined initiatives for any size business or investment company.
