About

Everimpact is a startup fighting climate change with innovative solutions that can scale. Our vision is a planet where global warming is under control. Our mission is to make it easier for cities and companies to measure greenhouse gas emissions, identify opportunities to reduce emissions and finance needed investments.

Our Story

80 years of cumulated experience in the United Nations.

The three founders of Everimpact have experienced first-hand the fragility of our planet by working in and with all countries of the world.  Managing complex projects on the most challenging global issues, we had to be innovative and committed to make a difference where it matters, for the people that need it the most. 

From experiencing war, food, health, flood, drought crisis, it struck us the most how climate change was often and increasingly the overarching and most pressing issue. Our insights into those challenges made us realise the urgency to tackle climate change.

We are now on a mission to bring the most comprehensive data and analysis about greenhouse gas emissions to help solve this most pressing global challenge.

There is no Planet B. Act now. Join us.
