Scotland/UK – Ecometrica, the downstream space and sustainability company, has won the prestigious US Environmental Leader Product of the Year Award for the third consecutive year for its Ecometrica Platform, which helps business, governments and society to understand and monitor environmental impacts, and protect the planet’s resources for existing and future generations.
The Environmental Leader judges described Ecometrica Platform as a “proven software package with impressive business applications and results”.
They added: “Ecometrica’s system is certainly world class in this respect. It combines multiple technologies into a single platform. It’s scalable. And clearly, significant results have been realized by the clients who have utilized this software”.
Used around the world by large corporates and governments, the Ecometrica Platform combines geospatial data from Earth Observation satellites with information gathered on the ground to create detailed maps, which track changes to forest ecosystems, crops and even soil moisture. The company has won landmark contracts with NASA and the UK Space Agency’s International Partnership Programme (IPP), which sees Ecometrica spearhead the ‘Forests 2020’ project.
The judges noted that the benefits companies obtain from the software’s audit-ready outputs, and Ecometrica’s status as a CDP Gold Software Partner, deliver additional value to its customers in terms of both time and money required to prepare for external verification activities.
“The comprehensive nature of the reporting system, along with accreditation by numerous agencies, makes it substantially ‘value added’ compared with others in its class,” the judges said. ”Strong data and analytics provides a key foundational element of driving successful energy and environmental management programs”.
Gary Davis, chief executive of Ecometrica, said: “It is an honour to win the Environmental Leader Product of the Year for a third year in a row. It’s a testament to the quality of the Ecometrica Platform, which is redefining and setting the global standard for geospatial sustainability reporting and also to the ability of our talented team to constantly innovate and evolve in response to technological advancements”.
Ecometrica was unveiled as winner of the coveted gong at Environmental Leader’s conference in Denver on May 17th. It is the latest in a long list of accolades for the Edinburgh-headquartered firm, which in 2018 alone has been named on the FT 1000 list of Europe’s Fastest Growing Companies; Inc.’s 5000 Europe ranking of the fastest-growing privately held companies in Europe, the GP Bullhound Northern Tech Awards, which recognises the fastest growing exceptional technology companies in the North of England and Scotland.

Ecometrica, the downstream space and sustainability company, turns the vast and growing streams of observation data from space, air and land into actionable insights for business, government and society.
A leading provider of sustainability and earth observation services, its satellite mapping technology is being used to protect 300 million hectares of tropical forests as part of the Forests 2020 project, which Ecometrica is spearheading on behalf of the UK Space Agency’s International Partnership Programme (IPP).
Ecometrica is one of the world’s top sustainability brands, as named by industry analyst Verdantix. It is the only CDP Gold Software Partner for its climate change, forests and water programmes. Ecometrica’s geospatial data mapping services, which support all aspects of sustainability planning, operations and reporting by businesses and public organisations, are available worldwide, through offices in the UK, USA, Canada and Mexico.
Founded in 2008, Ecometrica’s formidable story derives directly from the vision of its founding members and leadership – executive chairman Dr Richard Tipper, chief executive Gary Davis and chief product officer Bertrand Revenaz. Backed by a team of recognised experts, Ecometrica has unrivalled experience in environmental sustainability accounting and reporting.
The Ecometrica Platform, a web-based accounting and sustainability management solution, combines earth observation data from satellites with local information and business intelligence, to bring clarity to environmental and natural resource challenges facing corporates and governments alike. It helps businesses to easily track and map their impact on natural capital assets, like forests and water, tracking supply chain activity, verifying sustainable product sourcing, and environmental reporting to established sustainability frameworks.
The system takes the terabytes of raw data being sent to Earth by satellites easily accessible, bringing limitless possibilities for its application. It is the only sustainability software solution with audit-ready assurance from a Big Four auditor (PwC). For the largest customers who get their accounts externally audited, this means avoiding costly pre-audit fees that often run into hundreds of thousands of pounds per year.
