We believe better data enables meaningful climate investments — and a better shot at achieving net zero.

A lot hinges on climate initiatives having the impact they claim to. Historically, avenues for investing in climate action, like the voluntary carbon market, have been undermined by a lack of transparency.

Buyers need robust, unconflicted information to know that they’re investing in genuine climate impact. Sylvera’s software independently and accurately evaluates carbon projects that capture, remove, or avoid emissions.

Better data means more funding directed toward high-impact climate initiatives, more confidence for buyers, and real progress for the planet.

origin

How it all started

When Sylvera’s co-founders, Allister Furey and Sam Gill, met at a LocalGlobe climate event in 2019, they realized they shared an interest in using technology to bring greater transparency to climate investments.

While Allister was researching climate-forward business models, Sam had been structuring carbon projects in his work as a lawyer. Together, they recognized that genuine climate action needed proper data infrastructure to reach its true potential.

Sylvera in the news

This is some text inside of a div block.
“…Sylvera analyzes satellite images, 3-D laser scans and other data to estimate how much carbon is stored in trees. It crunches that information using machine-learning technology to grade the likely effectiveness of offset projects that plant or protect forests.”
We believe the London-based company is poised to become the technological backbone that powers global carbon offsetting.”
“...we need reliable data to determine the quality of carbon offsets, in order to incentivize people to invest in the projects that are actually doing good — and to reward the project developers doing good work.”
“Forest-monitoring start-ups raised at least $44m in early stage funding this year. …as companies are increasingly prepared to pay to monitor forests that generate carbon offsets — which organisations can use to compensate for emissions.”
“As a growing number of companies set targets to zero out their emissions, many are turning to carbon offsets to lower their climate impact. London-based startup Sylvera Ltd is trying to boost transparency by assigning ratings to projects, similar to what S&P Global Ratings and Moody’s Investors Service do for debt issuances.”
“By examining images of nearby deforestation, for example, Sylvera’s analysts are able to determine whether a project developer has used an appropriate baseline to estimate what would have happened if offset revenue were not used to protect the project area. ”
“Demand for carbon offset projects is expected to increase significantly over the next several years. While the carbon offsets are poised to grow rapidly, however, the market lacks a trusted, independent, universal benchmark to assess the projects. Sylvera was founded to address these issues.”
“Energy offsets have typically been the most popular. They’re the cheapest to buy, typically costing two to four times less than nature-based credits. However, according to a report by Sylvera, nature-based credits are becoming increasingly sought after.”
