We are looking at VCM activity across the world, tracking retirement, issuance, and other activity for ~27,000 VCM projects. Additionally, we are tracking geospatial data for the biggest nature-based projects (360+ of them) -- here, we track satellite data to track what has happened within the project's boundaries. We track data on methane emissions, deforestation rates, project burned area and thermal anomalies, biodiversity data, and many other data points. We can then check how the project has performed before and after the project crediting period start date. Going forward, we will continue to add to the data we collect and analyze as part of our dataset, and we are working with the Gold Standard and CAD Trust in order to help guide the industry on Open API best practices and data structures. We would love to be involved with MRV Collective to share our learnings to date, and to learn from the best in the industry.

Ecobot is the ClimateTech platform that predicts the future by collecting real-time field data. We believe that biodiversity is both the key to climate resilience and a critical marker of humankind’s impact on ecosystems. Ecobot modernizes environmental permitting work. We normalize, aggregate, and anonymize field data at the watershed (HUC8) level to feed the mission-critical expert network learning layer that we need to train satellite and LiDAR climate data. And we have a great head start. We already have over 5 million biodiversity and water data points gathered in the field. This is the anonymized data behind the 120,000 permitting reports our customers have created on the platform. These reports contain rich data about vegetation, soil, water, and topography — interconnected geospatially. Right now, we’re only in the US but we plan to expand. Imagine this data at a greater scale, across all environmental sectors, across the entire planet.
