The corporate carbon accounting and decarbonization software Plan A announced a new milestone achieved this month. The company appointed a six-member Scientific Advisory Board as part of its Sustainability Initiative to advise on its medium and long-term business strategy and help the company reach its own emissions reduction targets.
The six members come from some of the world’s most prominent organizations in the field of climate science, decarbonization, ESG, sustainability studies, policy, and business. They aim to shape and science-proof Plan A’s platform and provide guidance on deep decarbonization and ESG improvement tools and methods.
“We are honoured to have all these great thought leaders and deserving experts join our Scientific Advisory Board. What unites us is that together we want to push the boundaries of the climate agenda… In the face of this complexity, we see radical collaboration as the only solution. Our advisory board will be a catalyst for this shift Plan A aims to lead,” said Lubomila Jordanova, CEO of Plan A.
The startup also plans to move ahead with its decarbonization strategy that according to the company exceeds recommendations by the Science Based Targets initiative for SMEs. The targets include decarbonizing at least 80% of its avoidable emissions (internally and across its value chain) by 2025.
Plan A is a leading platform providing decarbonization solutions and services. The software automates CO2 emissions calculation, carbon reduction planning, and ESG reporting for companies.
The company was founded in 2017 but already managed to receive several awards and recognitions from environmental initiatives and won clients like Flixbus, BMW, Maersk, Société Générale and the European Union. It also closed a Series A funding round of $10 million in November 2021.
