On Tuesday 18 April, nZero, the leading near real-time carbon management and accounting platform, announced that it has closed a $16 million Series A funding round that will enable the company to scale amid a global call for better, more accurate tracking and reporting of energy, financial, and greenhouse gas emissions data across the public and private sectors. The influx of funding arrives as more organizations worldwide strive to use data to implement and reach climate change goals. The round was led by both Fifth Wall Opens in a new tab — the largest asset manager focused on improving, future-proofing, and decarbonizing the built world — and a national US energy company. Additional investors include Piedmont Capital Investments, Inc. with limited partner Henry Kravis, founder and co-chairman of KKR.
We have a proven track record in providing the best near-real-time, granular data across all scopes of emissions, which business and government leaders can use for operational and capital planning, leveraging tax credits, and the evolving reporting standards. Since our inception, we’ve aggregated more than 1 billion data points across 12,000 buildings and 10,000 vehicles, all being tracked by nZero, and this is just the beginning of our upwards trajectory. Our next chapter will enable us to grow as a data authority and bring our tech platform to scale, deepening our work with Fortune 500 companies, municipalities, government agencies and NGOs
