Pachama raises $5M to fight deforestation

LatamListPachama, a carbon-offsetting marketplace, secured an additional $5M extension to its Seed round from multiple investors. The round included investors such as Breakthrough Energy Ventures, Amazon Climate Pledge Fund, Aglaé Ventures, AirAngels, and, My Climate Journey.

Pachama is a marketplace where companies can support carbon-offsetting projects through investment. The startup uses machine learning with satellite imaging to measure the levels of carbon captured in forests. This technology also verifies the direct impact of a company’s investment in the project.

The environmental startup has already attracted major customers, including Microsoft and Spotify. With investors’ support via the marketplace, Pachama is building forest conservation and restoration projects around the world.

The most recent round of funding will further support Pachama in rebuilding the world’s forests. The investors will also bring unique expertise and knowledge to the table from their own experience in the climate industry.
