Food Production is 25% of Global Emissions - CarbonCloud is in a business lowering that.

About the company

CarbonCloud is a SaaS startup founded in Gothenburg Sweden in 2019 by a team of scientists on a mission to improve the climate impact of food. The company develops software that helps calculate and communicate the carbon footprint of your food products, map out your supply chain, and spot where and how to reduce your emissions together with your suppliers – from farm to shelf. The company ultimately provides the infrastructure and network packed with global data and intelligence to make the best procurement choices, get the most granular calculations, and even help consumers make climate-conscious choices. A real competitive advantage that, as of today, has only been a game of the few. The client base already includes several great brands and large international companies such as Oatly, Unilever, and Menigo among others and more are to come as the company expands into a global arena.
