Zero Circle and Wasabi Technologies Partner on New Sustainability Tools for Cloud Storage

Invoice-based carbon footprint and carbon offset programs empower businesses of all sizes to enhance transparency and achieve their ESG goals

NEW YORK & BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Zero Circle, a sustainable finance marketplace, and Wasabi Technologies, the hot cloud storage company, have partnered to develop a suite of sustainability-focused solutions for cloud storage that give businesses the data they need to make decisions that reduce their environmental impact.

Wasabi cloud storage integrated Zero Circle’s invoice-based carbon footprint calculator to give customers transparency and real-time assessment of their carbon footprint. Customers can upload their Wasabi invoice to Zero Circle’s carbon calculator to determine their estimated CO2 footprint based on actual data stored in a Wasabi storage region, increasing the accuracy of their ESG benchmarking with their peers and helping them make more sustainable business decisions.

According to the Wasabi 2024 Global Cloud Storage Index, sustainability ranks among the top three most important considerations for buyers when choosing a cloud storage service. Factors like ESG commitments, energy-efficient architecture design, and native tools for carbon footprint calculation are all increasingly important to modern enterprises as they adopt cloud infrastructure services. As a result, the survey found that cloud service providers must deliver accurate, reliable tools, metrics, and programs to meet customer expectations.

This joint initiative leverages Zero Circle’s deep expertise in sustainability and product carbon footprint measurement with Wasabi’s leadership in cloud storage to drive sustainability in the cloud storage industry and create innovative solutions that support businesses with their sustainability initiatives. The solution’s unique features and flexibility make it a powerful resource for companies seeking to measure and track their cloud sustainability, such as real-time emissions calculations integrated directly into the purchases from supply chain partners.

“Partnering with Zero Circle underscores Wasabi’s dedication to providing top-tier, sustainable cloud storage solutions,” said David Boland, vice president of cloud strategy at Wasabi Technologies. “Zero Circle’s carbon footprint calculation has already enabled Wasabi, our partners, and customers to gain a deeper understanding of our environmental impact. By integrating this solution into our supply chain, we are amplifying these benefits for everyone involved.”

“Announcing our collaboration with Wasabi marks a significant step in advancing environmental sustainability within the cloud storage sector,” said Hemanth Setty, founder and CEO of Zero Circle. “This partnership leverages our combined strengths and underscores our mutual dedication to fostering a more sustainable future, paving the way for innovative and groundbreaking solutions.”

The carbon footprint solution is now available to all Wasabi customers. The Zero Circle – Wasabi collaboration will also explore other eco-friendly initiatives, such as renewable energy procurement and carbon offset programs in an effort to further reduce environmental impact of cloud storage.
