Carbon Maps, a Parisian climatetech startup specifically catering to the food industry, has today announced the addition of €3 million to the company’s Pre-Seed funding round.
Carbon Maps collects and analyses data across the entire food chain, from farm to fork, and calculates several impact indicators, including the de facto carbon footprint, but goes a few steps further to include biodiversity impact, water use, and animal welfare.
With auditable calculations that are based on standards and models validated by the scientific community, Carbon Maps is helping companies, particularly French companies, get a jump on Eco-Score, an upcoming environmental consumer product label detailed in France’s climate and resilience law expected to come into effect by the end of this year.
Carbon Maps CEO and co-founder Patrick Asdaghi shared:
"The confidence shown in us by Daphni and our first customers reinforces our conviction that the environmental transition in the agri-food industry is possible, desired, and underway.
“This opportunity will enable us to work more quickly with all the players involved — producers, manufacturers, distributors, and restaurateurs, to identify all the possible avenues for improvement and have an impact from farm to fork.”
