Sustainability heavyweights join Clarasight

Climate Club, which helps global organisations close the gap between climate-related intention and action, has rebranded and has added industry heavyweights to its Advisory Board.

Under the new name of Clarasight, it has recruited “some of the brightest minds in the travel and sustainability space” to “expedite its mission to enable companies to confidently build pathways to sustainability goals that optimise financial performance”.

Joining the Advisory Board are:

  • Scott Gillespie, Industry Advisor at tClara
  • Glenn Thorsen, Global Sustainability Lead at FCM Consulting
  • Erika Murdock Balbuena, Head of ESG at Robinhood
  • Patrick Diemer, Co-Founder & Board Chair of BT4 Europe
  • Chrissa Pagitsas, Founder and Principal at Pagitsas Advisors

“Our new name is intended to reflect the value our product brings to forward-looking companies – the ability to plan emissions with confidence and transparency by automating department-level forecasts, analytics, planning and target setting for carbon emissions in alignment with business goals,” said Adam Braun, Clarasight CEO and Co-Founder.

“Many companies know their previous year’s emissions and have publicly set reduction targets. Clarasight is filling the gap in the adaptive planning that enables them to get there.”

Clarasight primarily works with professional services, technology and pharmaceutical companies to address critical areas of focus, including business travel, purchased goods and services, employee commuting and Scopes 1 & 2.

Founded in 2021, Clarasight is backed by leading venture capital firms XYZ Venture Capital, Vestigo Ventures, and additional strategic investors.

Reflecting the rising demand for carbon planning tools, Clarasight doubled its revenue in the latter half of 2023.
