Startups can be a key part of solving our society’s biggest challenges. In this fireside chat, meet one startup founder as they share their journey developing a new solution to track and reduce CO2 emissions caused by commuting.

Commutesaver provides a fully digital solution and an automated CO2 tracking app for employee commuting. The Ai based mobile app automatically detects the user’s transport mode (such as bicycle, public transport, car etc.), then tracks and reports those CO2 emissions to the company, along with data based recommendations for reducing emissions. The app also includes scoreboards, achievements, and other methods for incentivising employees’ reduction of CO2 emissions.
