Our Story.

In 2012, our Founder - Dr Vanessa Rauland - helped to certify the first carbon neutral school in Australia. The process epitomised the complexity and challenge of the world of carbon accounting. Complicated excel spreadsheets, endless paperwork and data entry and time-consuming written reports. Vanessa knew the process needed to be easier, more engaging and affordable, while still being accurate and credible to ensure more people would get on board. After years of research and pilots, she launched ClimateClever. Our science-based and data-driven platform guides you on your journey towards carbon neutrality and ultimately net zero emissions. Our system provides you with a beautiful carbon footprint report to help you celebrate and promote your climate action.

We have solutions for...


Join a variety of businesses using our Business Platform to reduce and manage their carbon footprint and even reach net zero all in one place.


Our longest running platform helps schools to track their sustainability initiatives and we facilitate term meet-ups and offer a range of support.


Households can reduce their personal carbon footprint with our free Homes Platform - and save money in the process!


Our Partnership Program allows LGAs and other organisations to support their community to take meaningful climate action.
