Bend helps companies automate carbon measurement with the highest possible credibility. This is done by converting spend and vendor info into emissions estimates, available via API. For example: imagine a $1,000 bill from Atlassian — Bend aggregates corporate emissions disclosures; we know that for every $1,000 spent with Atlassian, there’s a 30.2 kg footprint. For long tail merchants, Bend includes merchant category fallbacks, so you’re guaranteed 100% coverage (e.g. for Starbucks, a Starbucks factor is used; for a mom-and-pop coffee shop, a benchmark ‘coffee shop’ factor is used). The team's background is in fintech (Google, former co-founder of Abacus and head of product at Emburse, etc.) and climate science (with degrees from MIT and Columbia). Bend is backed by Y Combinator and Character.
