While a growing number are commendably committing to net zero, most are unable to make a real impact because they underestimate the challenges in measuring, managing and reporting their data along the way. Terrascope simplifies that journey for them.”

“We are seeing strong demand for Terrascope’s solutions and are delighted to welcome a strong and experienced leader like Maya to lead the business and steer it to the next phase of growth,” said Sundararajan.
