The transportation sector represents 22 per cent of global emissions. That includes ground transport, shipping, and aviation. In fact, every minute, airplanes generate about 2,000 tonnes of greenhouse gases directly into the atmosphere. Aviation companies in particular face increasing pressure to start acting against the emissions generated by aircraft. They also face compliance regulations from emissions mitigation schemes like ICAO’s CORSIA program and the EU's ETS (emissions trading scheme).
Azzera is creating a B2B SaaS platform that allows aviation companies and governments to effortlessly get started in emissions management. The Azzera CELESTE offers: fully integrated and automatic flight emission calculation and reporting, ETS compliance by trading compliance carbon credits, voluntary offsetting/compensation by trading qualified carbon credits, and emissions reduction through acquiring sustainable aviation fuel certificates. By developing an end-to-end solution that reduces workload and covers regulatory compliance concerns, we are creating a pathway for climate action.
Our goal is to focus on supporting small and mid-sized carbon credit suppliers and bringing on all verticals in transportation for fleet emissions management. We are on a mission to reset the climate legacy of transportation, starting with aviation.
Why our venture should be considered one of Canada’s 50 most investible cleantech companies
Azzera is founded by two veterans in the aviation space, and since inception in 2021 we have already participated in a Climate Fintech accelerator (Tenity), won a Start-up Innovation Award at Davos, and have closed a USD $500K pre-seed round. We have been selected by Transport Canada to test Azzera CELESTE with commercial airlines as part of a Federal Government initiative.
