Segment 1 - Lydia Ashburn (CarbonSpace)

Carbon footprint monitoring is especially challenging when accounting for emissions from farms, fields, or forests. Companies in agriculture, food processing, forestry, and wood products lack instruments to measure the footprint of their operations and supply chains.

CarbonSpaceTech is developing a carbon footprint monitoring platform to bring a new level of transparency to these organizations.

Our proprietary AI technology core is processing several layers of satellite, sensor, and inventory data, which yields high spatial resolution and near real-time analytics. It was elegantly designed to create an ultimate self-onboarding tool for monitoring emissions from different types of lands.

The CarbonSpace platform provides actionable insights about farm, field, and forest emissions to facilitate climate-responsible decisions and to unleash the carbon offset potential of our customers.

Segment 2 - Kaitlin Mercier (Routeique)
