sustainacraft, Inc. focuses on nature-based solutions (NbS) for climate change and aims to maximize their effect through a more accurate carbon accounting system. While it is important to expand projects in forest conservation, sustainable forest management, and agriculture, it is equally imperative to ensure the transparency of such projects and the sound circulation of funds while increasing credibility.
We are currently working with environmental NGOs, financial institutions, and international development agencies in Southeast Asia, Latin America, and Europe to create a healthy financial cycle for nature conservation through two approaches: monitoring natural resources using satellite imagery and assessing appropriate reference levels using causal inference techniques.
Our Working Environment
We encourage asynchronous communication through services such as Notion, Slack, and Loom, making it possible for people to work regardless of their location. Although our day-to-day interactions are online and based on remote work, we provide an opportunity to work together in a relaxed environment near Tokyo once a week.
Members working with us come from diverse backgrounds, including consultants from professional consulting firms and foreign development banks, satellite image analysis specialists at satellite constellation companies, researchers in causal inference, and geographic information visualization specialists. Many of our members hold PhDs in engineering and economics.
Our paper, presented in collaboration with the National Institute for Environmental Studies and Hitotsubashi University, won Best Paper at the Climate Change AI Workshop at NeurIPS 2022, a top-level conference on machine learning.
Our strong R&D is a key component of our competitive edge.We also publish a regular newsletter on approaches and methodologies for forest and soil biomass estimation and project intervention effects.
※ Regarding software engineering, we need to devise various ways to process satellite remote sensing information and causal inference technology at the operational level, and we are trying to do so through trial and error while also verifying cutting-edge technology.We would like to actively communicate engineering-related information, and we welcome anyone who is interested to spread such information through our newsletters and other means.In addition to our own engineers, we are supported by experienced outsourced engineers, and we believe that this is an ideal environment where we have the opportunity to absorb various points of views and knowledge, including from outside the company.
