Earthbanc is the world’s first data-driven carbon and investment platform tackling climate change. It leverages machine learning and satellite remote sensing to continuously audit and rate landscape carbon, carbon offsets and the green finance products that support carbon removal. During Rockit Impact Accelerator, Earthbanc worked together with Swedbank Lithuania in a pilot project to enable businesses to track their carbon footprint. The initial aim was to take business customers account data and use it to calculate carbon reduction. Earthbanc delivered not only the footprint report, but also personalized insights on carbon reduction, market averages and cost-saving tips for Swedbank's business customers. The pilot project helped Swedbank understand the emerging carbon market and green finance, while Earthbanc received valuable feedback in perfecting their product. As a result of their strong commitment towards Triple Top Line, Katalista Ventures participated in the startup's pre-seed funding round of $1.5M.
