Persefoni, a startup helping businesses keep track of their carbon footprint using AI, has raised $3.5 million in seed funding, after being backed by the Rice Investment Group and Carnrite Ventures.
As big business becomes increasingly conscious of its environmental impact, demand for carbon management solutions is expected to grow. Analysts at Markets and Markets predict the industry will be valued at $12 billion by 2025.
Persefoni was cofounded by former Accenture executive Kentaro Kawamori, alongside business partners Kim Stroh and Jason Offerman, in January. The company is based in Arizona.
The firm offers clients what is calls the world’s first ever “business-centric platform [connecting] the entire sustainability disclosure and reporting cycle”, allowing corporates to keep track of all their emissions: incorporating everything from electricity bills to plane journeys.
