Company Profile

SINAI is a San Francisco-based technology company focused on transforming how companies measure, price, and analyze carbon emissions globally. We enable global organizations with complex supply chains to achieve their net-zero goals through carbon reduction strategies. Funded by leading investors in sustainability, the company is led by a trailblazing team of entrepreneurs and software engineers focused on solving global climate change.

Our market is massive; only 21% of companies currently have a net-zero pledge, and of those that do, many do not yet have a plan to turn this ambition into action. As climate change accelerates, so will the number of commitments and the need to achieve them. SINAI's platform enables teams to identify their optimal decarbonization pathway and achieve net-zero.

Our Mission

SINAI's mission is to provide organizations with the technology necessary to build deep decarbonization strategies. Our tools engage organizations to automate carbon analysis and reporting for their entire operation, transforming how they interact with their business, value chain, and the environment.
