Emitwise, the London-based sustainability startup, just raised $3.4 million in a seed funding round backed by Ryan Graves, the first employee and one-time CEO of Uber. 

Founded in 2019, Emitwise has developed a software platform that enables companies to track their emissions in real time, not only throughout their own business but also across suppliers, allowing them to quickly identify carbon hotspots and plan ways of driving down emissions. 

"We started Emitwise to fight climate change," said cofounder and CEO Mauro Cozzi. "We want to help [companies] support the transition to a low-carbon world by making it easy to plan and implement cost-effective strategies that combine sustainability with profitability."

The funding round was led by Silicon Valley VC firm True Ventures, alongside former Uber CEO Ryan Graves, through his Saltwater Capital fund, Ashby Monk, research director of the Stanford Global Projects Center, and Social Impact Capital.
