Our mission is to transform organisations for a zero-carbon future.

Making environmental reporting simple and easy allows organisations to demonstrate their progress.

We do this by data matching information from their accounting software and other sources to automate carbon monitoring and environmental foot-printing.

The version of our software available now will provide a close estimate of the carbon emissions of your organisation. We expect to release upgrades progressively that will also help you to identify the right energy saving solutions for your organisation, by assessing when energy efficiency options are likely to be financially viable given your organisation’s circumstances. The current version may make some suggestions but these provide general advice only at this point. We expect to provide more closely targeted suggestions in future versions.

Evalue8 came about by the idea of creating environmental (e) value (value) perpetually (8), by evaluating and analysing organisations’ impacts and using data and algorithms to match them to the right solutions.
