Celebrating ten companies focused on environmental sustainability this Earth Day
From saving the bees, to conserving water, or making carbon credits more accessible, Insight has invested in some incredible ScaleUps that are making the earth a better, more sustainable place to live. We’re proud to support these leaders on Earth Day.
AMCS is the leading supplier of integrated software and vehicle technology for the waste, recycling and material resources industries.
Beewise is a company with one mission in mind: saving the bees. This exclusive focus of the company is manifested in its first solution, the Beehome, the world’s first autonomous beehive with an integrated robotic beekeeper.
“Putting the focus on environmental sustainability on Earth Day is a wonderful thing, but with our planet in crisis, it is critical to think about sustainability the other 364 days of the year too. One way to stay hyper-focused on sustainability is to build a business that ‘does well by doing good.’ That’s why when we founded Beewise with the goal of reversing the global bee colony collapse crisis and thereby securing the global food supply, we made sure our business was intrinsically aligned with our mission. For every dollar we make, we save at least two bees.”
– Saar Safra, CEO & Co-Founder, Beewise

Project Canary is a SaaS-based data analytics company focused on environmental performance or the “E” in ESG for emission-intensive companies.
Sylvera’s mission is to be a source of truth for carbon markets by 2024. We help corporate sustainability leaders, carbon traders, and policymakers confidently evaluate and invest in the best carbon credits by providing comprehensive and accessible insights on carbon projects.
“If we’re to prevent catastrophic global warming, we need corporations to prioritise climate action and protecting our ecosystems. After emissions reduction, one of the most urgent available levers is purchasing carbon credits, which fund projects around the globe that are either reducing or capturing carbon dioxide or the equivalent amount of greenhouse gas. However, for years, companies had to buy these credits in the dark, not knowing their true climate impact – Until Sylvera.
We’re on a mission to bring transparency to this historically opaque market. We use a combination of proprietary tech including satellite imagery and machine learning models, complemented by boots on the ground, to rate the quality of projects so that organisations can make their climate investment decisions with confidence.”
— Allister Furey, CEO and Co-founder of Sylvera
WINT is passionate about helping the world conserve one of its most precious resources and dedicated to helping businesses prevent the hazards, costs, waste and environmental impact associated with water leaks and waste.
In general, Insight believes that innovative software and technology will play a critical role in achieving a more sustainable and prosperous future. Through our traditional software investment pipeline, we find that we are frequently sourcing, evaluating, and partnering with software companies that may contribute to addressing some of society’s pressing environmental and social challenges. However, please note that Insight is not an “impact investor,” meaning we not make investments with any explicit intent to contribute to measurable positive social or environmental outcomes. Moreover, our Funds do not have sustainable investment as their objective (within the meaning of SFDR Article 9, or otherwise), nor do our Funds actively seek to promote environmental or social characteristics through their investments (within the meaning of SFDR Article 8, or otherwise).
