Since 2005 Brighter Planet has pioneered the practice of computational sustainability—using hard numbers and raw data to reveal actionable opportunities and deliver measurable results.
We operate at the intersection of software, science, and business, finding surprising sustainability opportunities in the world's flows of data and money, and engineering them into scalable science-based technology that solves modern resource challenges. Our approach emphasizes transparency, auditability, and standards compliance. Learn more at our services page.
Since getting our start in a college classroom just a few years ago, Brighter Planet has partnered with dozens of leading organizations, attracted hundreds of thousands of customers, performed millions of environmental impact calculations, and prevented hundreds of millions of pounds of carbon dioxide emissions. In 2010 we took home a Financial Times Social Innovation Award and were named Small Business of the Year by Treehugger.
We are a small, committed team based in Vermont and San Francisco. We're proud to have some of the nation's leading technology and sustainability experts on our leadership boards and to partner with a wide range of organizations in developing solutions to our energy challenges.
We have worked with some of the world's leading companies to address carbon and energy issues with modern IT tools and custom sustainability initiatives, including MasterCard, Bank of America, TripIt, Dell, Heroku, CocaCola, GOOD, and others.
