ACTUAL

Climate change is the defining challenge of our time: a once-in-a-generation test that is rapidly reshaping the world around us. At ACTUAL we are building a software platform to help organizations of all kinds to break through climate paralysis and begin turning their sustainability goals into meaningful, measurable action.

Think of ACTUAL as a scaled up take on the “Sim” planning games you may have played growing up. Our software enables corporations, governments, and change-making organizations of all kinds to plan sustainability initiatives with snap-together ease, and to rapidly assess the environmental and social impacts of their operations. Drawing on inspirations as varied as urban planning, game design, journalistic data visualization, and scientific computing, ACTUAL is helping our users to reimagine supply chains, workplaces, factories, and cities for a more sustainable future.

We are well funded, with a growing pipeline of enterprise customers and worldwide projects. Our interdisciplinary team hails from widely varied backgrounds, unified by a shared commitment to creativity, quantitative rigor, and building a more optimistic future. You can learn more about our perspectives on our blog.
