Meet terralytiq

A global team of decarbonization experts, industry practitioners, and software developers united by a shared mission

Our mission statement

Empower companies to move their decarbonization ambition into action

What we do

Terralytiq builds SaaS solutions to help companies understand their carbon footprint and guides them towards the most efficient way to reduce it using data driven insights

We are a cutting-edge clean tech start-up that specializes in helping companies identify and reduce their carbon emissions. For that, we build SaaS products that provide an easy-to-use and intuitive solution for companies to understand their carbon emissions across all scopes and categories along the entire supply chain

Our proprietary database of models allows us to create customized emission factors specific to the supplier footprint and situation of our customers. The approach follows the latest science and guidelines around emission accounting and reporting, ensuring that the product is compatible with all major standards and rules, such as the GHG protocol, CDP, and SBTi.

With Terralytiq, companies can obtain results with very little initial data and successively improve them as more and better data becomes available. Additionally, the solution can help companies regularly update and report their carbon footprint

Terralytiq also includes an extensive proprietary library of decarbonization technologies and initiatives, which can be customized by the customer to create decarbonization programs and pathways. The company is dedicated to helping companies take concrete and meaningful steps to reduce their carbon emissions and combat climate change

Global greenhouse gas emissions are at an all-time high and rising. Businesses contribute 80%+ of emissions, and therefore need to lead the transition to net-zero. While many institutions have decarbonization ambitions, most lack the tools to act

Terralytiq is a climate tech startup that specializes in decarbonization software-as-a-service (SaaS). We build SaaS solutions that empower institutions to build the net-zero economy. We partner with leading companies who take bold action to decarbonize their operations. With the preeminent global team of sustainability professionals, we bring a practitioner’s perspective to decarbonizing businesses

Our solutions give companies a competitive edge in the transition to net-zero. Built by industry practitioners, Terralytiq’s platform provides an intuitive approach for companies to decarbonize their carbon footprint. Its extensive and proprietary database of climate tech models allows companies to create emission factors with primary data unique to their supply chain, to optimize pathways to net-zero across cost and carbon, and to generate actionable initiatives to mobilize their organization

With Terralytiq, our customers can manage their complete carbon footprint. Terralytiq’s solutions are compatible with all major carbon accounting standards, such as GHG ProtocolCDPSBTi, and ISO. In addition, Terralytiq experts incorporate the latest scientific and market developments to stay ahead of these ever evolving standards and major climate policy, such as the European CBAMAmerican Inflation Reduction Act, and SEC Climate Disclosures
