Our Mission

Clarity AI brings societal impact to markets, and what that means to us is that we illuminate paths to a more sustainable world.

We do that by building-in a customizable, scalable sustainability tech kit to our clients existing workflows, which empowers them to efficiently and confidently assess, analyze and report on anything valuable to them or their clients and everything required by regulation.

We are a sustainability tech company, founded in 2017. We leverage AI and machine learning technologies to ensure sustainability dimensions are a focal point of decision making for professional investors, corporates and consumers..

In regards to financial markets, participants there have used ESG indicators (Environmental, Social and Governance) to evaluate dimensions of risk and impact. However, this kind of assessment is limited: it only considers how companies behave in these three dimensions but doesn’t consider the products and services the companies provide as part of their contribution, positive or negative, to society. Leveraging scientific research and the latest technologies, we provide decision makers with the most transparent, reliable and comprehensive capabilities and tools to assess, analyze and report on social and environmental impact.

We have received several awards that show the value that we are providing to the market:

  • World Economic Forum Pioneer
  • One of the most innovative projects in the US. Harvard Innovation Lab
  • Top startup with impact worldwide by IMPACT Growth 2017
  • Top 10 Fintech startup worldwide by BBVA Open Talent
  • Young Global Leader to Founder and CEO, Rebeca Minguela 2017
