Generative AI: Supercharging Climate Tech Startups in the Race to Zero Emissions

Climate tech startups are utilizing generative AI to tackle the climate crisis by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and enabling a transition to a zero-carbon economy. This emerging technology is accelerating their efforts in various sectors, from building decarbonization to supply chain optimization.


  • BrainBox AI: Uses generative AI to optimize building HVAC systems, reducing energy costs and CO2 emissions by up to 40%. They leverage Amazon Bedrock to automate data extraction and configuration file generation, speeding up onboarding and impact.
  • Pendulum: Aims to reduce waste and emissions in supply chains through AI-powered demand forecasting, supply planning, and geolocation. They use generative AI to unlock data from unstructured documents, enabling precision agriculture and reducing resource overuse.
  • VIA: Provides a privacy-preserving solution for organizations to track energy data and achieve sustainability goals. Their generative AI models don't require individual data, allowing collective carbon footprint reduction while respecting privacy concerns.

These are just a few examples of how climate tech startups are harnessing the power of generative AI to make a positive impact. As the technology evolves, we can expect even more innovative solutions to emerge in the fight against climate change.
