Cities are both the cause and the solution to the climate crisis. As the source of nearly 40% of global GHG emission, decarbonizing the built environment is key to lasting change.
Commercial buildings have a valuable decarbonization asset hiding in plain sight. But property owners don’t have an easy path to unlocking green roof potential because the process is disaggregated, 75% get eliminated from scope due to complexities, and the typical one-off approach leads to high development costs. DirtSat is transforming green roof development through a managed marketplace. We aggregate the stakeholder ecosystem on one platform, providing an “easy” button for owners. We use technology to both surface the right rooftops and monitor their impact.
"It's clear that agriculture, done right, is the best means the world has today to simultaneously tackle food security, poverty and environmental degradation." — Irene Rosenfeld
<aside> 📌 Watch this space for future opportunities in Engineering, Marketing, and more.
🌍 Our company is fully remote, and we're assembling a team of extraordinary talent to tackle green roof adoption and move the needle forward on climate adaptation. That means three verticals covering PropTech - energy reductions + modeling, ClimateTech - UHI reductions + stormwater capture, and SpaceTech - geospatial intelligence + analytics.
🔨 In true startup fashion, we're starting with small but notable building blocks for future development. We are evaluating deliverables and culture fit with an eye toward continued and recurring roles. If we like each other and what's produced, we'll find more opportunities to work together.
