App Store Provides Tools to Measure, Reduce Carbon Footprint

The Climate App Store is designed to cater to diverse industries such as foodservice, construction, clothing and more to measure and provide options for carbon management, tailored to users’ specific needs.

Greenly Climate App Store

Greenly launched The Climate App Store, what is said to be the world’s first app store focused on providing tools to measure and reduce users’ carbon footprints.

The Climate App Store is designed to cater to diverse industries to both measure and provide options for carbon management, tailored to users’ specific needs.

When we launched Greenly four years ago, we were the first mobile application on Apple's App Store dedicated to calculating personal carbon footprints. We were already surprised back then that there was no climate category on the App Store or Google Play Store. We couldn't wait any longer as emissions continue to rise and climate change keeps getting worse. So, we launched our own marketplace,” says Alexis Normand, CEO of Greenly. Anyone, any company should be able to access the most suitable carbon calculator for their activities, to understand the origin of their emissions in detail, and thus identify how to improve their impact. The most exciting part of this project is that Greenly is no longer alone. We already have a community of over 1,500 user companies and a growing network of developers who want to advance climate accounting. Building an app for the climate is a very concrete way to turn indignation against passivity into a tangible and operational action plan. We encourage everyone to join this wonderful project."
