DevvStream seeks to partner with governments and corporations worldwide to achieve their sustainability goals through the implementation of curated green technology projects that are designed to improve energy efficiency and eliminate, reduce or sequester carbon emissions, through the use of carbon credits. Through a unique, two-pronged business model, DevvStream’s Carbon Management and Carbon Investment programs take a systematic approach to the process of generating carbon credits by partnering with project owners to either directly invest as a co-developer or execute project design, documentation, and certification efforts and associated costs in exchange for a substantial portion of multi-year carbon credit streams. Through this approach, DevvStream aims to democratize access to carbon markets while helping governments and corporations worldwide meet their sustainability goals.
