Minimum, the enterprise Carbon Accounting Software, has announced its official expansion into the United States to better serve US corporations as markets prepare for SEC-mandated climate disclosure requirements. To accelerate this process, the company recently opened an office in Austin, Texas.
US companies are under increasing pressure to demonstrate carbon literacy. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is expected to enact rules this year requiring listed companies to disclose emissions they are responsible for – including those embodied in goods they purchase and investments they make – making an accurate system of record for emissions data essential for enterprise companies.
Minimum’s software delivers fully customizable and auditable data infrastructure that enables businesses to seamlessly surface, interpret and disclose their emissions data. Their software creates audit-ready reports and enables companies to meet every disclosure standard by default, whilst their in-house Sustainability Experts deliver the white-glove end-to-end bespoke service large companies expect when implementing enterprise software.
Preparing For A Carbon-Conscious Future
The expansion will bring Minimum’s Carbon Accounting Software to major US and global corporations that recognize the importance of having a central system of record for emissions data. For many American businesses, investing in Minimum represents their first step in prioritizing the data tooling that is increasingly essential in today’s market environment.
In addition, Minimum partnered with Nasdaq to expand its portfolio of sustainability reporting tools and help provide its ESG Advisory clients with comprehensive visibility into their carbon footprints. Nasdaq’s ESG Advisory clients can now take advantage of Minimum’s technology platform to further their sustainability journey and gain insight into robust emissions data, while addressing industry and regulatory changes.
“Big business has been slow to move on climate action, but Minimum’s expansion into North America is another signal that execs increasingly recognize the challenge associated with understanding and disclosing emissions data,” comments Freddie Evans, Minimum’s Co-founder and CEO. “Businesses must prepare for increasingly stringent disclosure requirements, as well as growing investor and market scrutiny. We look forward to enabling enterprises across the US and beyond to surface, interpret and disclose their emissions data at the click of a button.”
“Minimum’s Emissions Data Platform made it incredibly easy for us to calculate our carbon footprint and gain granular insights,” adds Trevor Fitzgerald at 3D media platform Matterport, headquartered in Sunnyvale, California. “It was far more user-friendly than the manual methods we used previously and easily outperformed competitors.”
