Optera was founded in 2006, originally operating as a boutique corporate sustainability consulting firm called Point380. Our founders were key contributors to ground-breaking publications – Winning the Oil Endgame, Reinventing Fire, and The 3% Solution – that informed the foundations of corporate climate action. These studies culminated in a report commissioned to launch the influential We Mean Business Coalition called The Climate Has Changed.
Around the signing of the Paris Agreement in 2016, it had become clear that consulting alone could not move the needle on corporate sustainability quickly enough to meaningfully enable global decarbonization. This need inspired the creation of Optera, the software company dedicated to scaling carbon management to empower corporations to transition to zero emissions. Built on the insights from consulting for many of the world’s largest corporate sustainability programs, Optera’s software launched in 2018 and has since been adopted by leading organizations like Cisco, HPE, Lowes, NVIDIA, TJX, and Williams Sonoma. As the need for climate action increases, we’re set to grow and scale along with our clients. We believe that existential questions require concrete tools, and this is how we can make the most impact in the fight against climate change.
