Vaayu is the world’s first and only automated carbon software built to empower retailers to measure, monitor and reduce carbon emissions in real-time. It does this by providing retailers with easy-to-use carbon data and unparalleled insight into their entire supply chain from product development to packaging to deliveries.
The platform leverages proprietary AI and machine learning technologies to draw insights from production, sales and logistics data to help retailers locate hotspots in their supply chain and take effective action in parallel to their business operations. Vaayu makes calculating carbon footprint accessible and affordable to retailers of all sizes and budgets and works with over 50 global brands including Klarna, Missoma and Organic Basics.
With the retail sector currently responsible for 20% of all global emissions, Vaayu aims to help retailers reduce one gigaton of carbon emissions by 2030, the equivalent of the combined emissions produced by Germany and France annually.
