Scalable Sustainability
API Architecture

Scalable API architecture to support sustainability, quality, and labor standards.

Let’s equalize access to Sustainable Commerce

At least $3 trillion is currently spent on sustainable commerce. It is still too dificult for businesses to shift to sustainable production and for consumers to find sustainable businesses and products.

What is not working :

  • Every certification body and standard setting organization owns data that represents a piece of the sustainability puzzle. But it’s simply too expensive for even the largest organizations to access and verify this data in a scalable way.
  • Data providers (certification bodies, standard owners, etc) rightly value their data and want to monetize it. Yet, in its fragmented state, it is not highly valuable.
  • Retailers, brands, eCommerce platforms and marketplaces need easier ways to verify sustainability claims.

How It Works


Data consumers (retailers, brands, manufacturers, ecommerce platforms) purchase credits.


Each credit allows for checking claims related to an entity (for instance “Vegan” related to a product).


The data consumer (e.g. a brand) is provided with a digitally signed token of authenticity.


Data provider is paid a small fee for each verified check that requires a digital cookie.

Less than 1% of sustainability, quality, and labor standards checks are available over an API.
Let’s change that together.
