Developing the data infrastructure to support a
demonstrably net-zero future

The drive towards carbon net-zero is a collective-action problem. Many organisations, across different sectors, and across the world need to work together to find a sustainable way forwards. No single organisation can carry out this work alone

Icebreaker One is a non-partisan not-for-profit, working to deliver this net-zero future in collaboration with our members. We bring together key stakeholders across finance, water, energy, transport, agriculture and the built environment sectors, and our existing Members include NGOs, industry, academia and financial institutions.

Together we identify the data infrastructure needed to reduce carbon emissions and then unlock this by creating standards-based marketplaces for environmental & financial data. Through our work, we aim to influence investment decisions of $3.6 trillion a year. We currently have three innovation programmes:

  1. SERI — Standard for Environmental Risk and Insurance
  2. Open Energy — an open energy ecosystem that works for everyone
  3. Cygnus — determining how we are going to finance a net-zero COVID-19 recovery
