The UK firm, Emitwise, is the winner of the 10th Edition of the Sacyr Awards for Innovation. The Sacyr Foundation recognized the proposal submitted by the UK startup as the best solution to one of the four challenges posed by Sacyr as part of its Sacyr iChallenges program: Carbon footprint measuring and reporting for Scope 3.
Sacyr also highlighted the quality of the top 12 proposals recived as part of the Sacyr iChallenges program and awarded second prize to the Spanish firm, Detektia, for its project to anticipate the geotechnical behavior of terrain.
Emitwise’s solution uses machine learning to monitor and manage Scope 3 carbon emissions in real time through a cloud platform.
Scope 3 includes indirect emissions that occur in the value chain of the reporting company. The other two innovators with the best solutions to emissions measurement were Ártabro Tech (Spain) and One Click LCA (Finland).
