ABOUT PLEDGE

Pledge is a climate infrastructure platform making it simple for businesses of every size to integrate carbon measurement & offsetting tools into their customer experience. The initial focus is set on high-emitting use cases such as logistics and transportation. The team is on a mission to make businesses climate aware and help accelerate their transition to net zero.

Pledge was founded in 2021 by early employees of Revolut and the co-founder of Freetrade. Investors include climate and b2b technology investors Visionaries Club, Lowercarbon Capital as well as the founders of Checkout.com and Unity.

  • Experience in a fast-paced environment, ideally high growth startup experience;

  • Ideally, you have an established network in the space with connections to peers at other companies, policy makers and other public bodies as well as relevant international organisations.

WHAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL
