Pachama is a mission-driven company looking to restore nature to help address climate change. Pachama brings the latest technology in remote sensing and AI to the world of forest carbon in order to enable forest conservation and restoration to scale.
Pachama’s core technology harnesses satellite imaging with artificial intelligence to measure carbon captured in forests. This technology enables remote carbon measurement and monitoring of forests. Today, the technology is used to provide a new standard of assurance in carbon markets. Through the Pachama marketplace, we connect responsible companies and individuals with carbon credits from projects that are protecting and restoring forests worldwide.
Through early partnerships, Pachama is using technology to create new restoration projects. Pachama is building scalable tools to enable more forest projects around the world to participate in carbon markets, promoting more restoration and protection of forests and a healthier planetary future.
Pachama was founded by Diego Saez-Gil and Tomas Aftalion, two technology entrepreneurs originally from Argentina. The company is backed by mission-aligned VCs including Breakthrough Energy Ventures, Amazon Climate Fund, Lowercarbon Capital, Saltwater, and Y Combinator.
