We believe carbon markets are one of the greatest tools we have to achieve net zero.
Voluntary Carbon Markets (VCMs) have historically been undermined by asymmetric information. Because there’s been a lack of transparency around the quality of carbon projects, the carbon credit is often a black box, leaving buyers unsure of what they’re actually buying. We set out to fix this by providing the most accurate and trustworthy carbon project data and ratings.
Our founding story
Having met at a LocalGlobe climate event in 2019, Sylvera’s co-founders, Allister Furey and Sam Gill, realized they had a shared interest in applying technology to bring greater transparency to carbon markets.
Allister had been researching climate-forward business models while Sam was structuring carbon projects in his work as a lawyer. Together they recognized Voluntary Carbon Markets could not scale to their potential without proper data infrastructure.
