Brighter Planet

Brighter Planet uses advanced quantitative analysis to uncover valuable sustainability opportunities in the business data of leading global corporations and organizations.

Its CM1 platform performs sophisticated high-volume environmental impact quantification in real time, powering the next generation of sustainability software.

For individuals, Brighter Planet offers the nation’s leading green credit and debit cards. The cards fund the construction of renewable energy and sustainable forestry projects with every purchase. Brighter Planet’s free social web application lets users track their climate impact with the world’s most rigorous personal carbon footprint calculator, and manage and share their actions to reduce that impact.

Since getting its start in a college classroom, Brighter Planet has attracted hundreds of thousands of customers, performed tens of millions of carbon calculations, and prevented hundreds of millions of pounds of carbon dioxide emissions. The company has received awards from Financial Times, Treehugger, and the U.S. EPA.
