Project Canary is a growth-stage, SaaS and certification company combatting climate-change from an incredible vantage point that can impact oil & gas, utilities, landfills, and ag.

The resulting independent, trusted data can inform the procurement of offsets in real-time using microtransactions, formulate a data driven ESG strategy that investors now demand, improve operations by identifying problem areas in minutes, and bolster customer engagement through radical supply chain transparency.

Initially, we are focused on the energy industry. With thousands of energy assets analyzed and hundreds of environmental and air quality sensors currently deployed, Project Canary is positioned better than anyone to provide empirical ESG dataand we have the ARR and growing pains to prove it.
