AMSTERDAM , May 10, 2022 (press release) –

CO2ok, a Dutch leader in digital solutions for carbon footprinting and offsetting for e-commerce, today announced it is joining South Pole, the world's leading climate solutions provider and climate project developer.

Together, CO2ok and South Pole will enable online retailers and their customers to easily measure, reduce, and offset the carbon footprint of their purchases, drawing on their complementary expertise in digital solutions and sustainability. CO2ok's team of experts and software engineers will bolster South Pole's existing Digital Climate Solutions practice to ensure clients, including eBay and Otto as well as sustainable frontrunners such as Naïf Care and Pockies, are fully supported on every step of their Climate Journey.

“We're very excited to be a part of the South Pole family. South Pole's expertise on product footprinting and their globally recognized brand will greatly accelerate CO2ok's mission to empower consumers to make more environmentally conscious purchasing decisions, and address the hidden climate impact of our everyday consumption," says Milo de Vries, founder of CO2ok.

“We are excited to welcome CO2ok to the South Pole family, and look forward to realising our shared ambition of dramatically scaling up climate action using digital solutions. CO2ok's unique ability to develop 'plug and play' sustainability applications fits perfectly with South Pole's emphasis on using digital technology to ramp up climate action and reach more people," says Renat Heuberger, co-founder and CEO of South Pole.

CO2ok has shown year on year growth of 600%, currently with a team of 11 employees spread out over Europe, Asia and the US and the Climate Neutral Checkout app is downloaded (worldwide) multiple times a day. CO2ok will continue to serve its existing clients while being fully integrated as a South Pole company over the coming months. Clients from both South Pole and CO2ok will be able to tap into a range of services, including climate footprinting and South Pole's Climate API Platform.

The first thousand companies to download South Pole's Climate Neutral Checkout will be invited to trial the premium version for free for the first 3 months.

This announcement follows several other recent acquisitions by South Pole, including CO2logic in Belgium, Carbonsink in Italy, GoClimate in Sweden, Republic of Everyone in Australia, as well as the new round of minority investments by Temasek, Salesforce Ventures and Swisscom.
