Deepki: Use of funds

Lucrative opportunity beckons
Commenting on the new funding, Vincent Bryant (CEO) and Emmanuel Blanchet (COO) co-founders of Deepki, said: “More than $5 trillion of investment is needed each year to decarbonize the built environment and ensure the real estate sector can meet its commitment to meet the net zero target by 2050. The value of the monitoring and analytics market required to achieve this goal is likely to be worth $5 to $10 billion by 2025, with year-on-year growth of 20%. Today’s announcement means that we are in an even stronger position to take advantage of this huge opportunity.”
Jean Tardy-Joubert, Partner at Highland Europe, and Humbert de Liedekerke Beaufort, Managing Partner at One Peak, commented: “The real estate sector is currently responsible for 40% of the Earth’s carbon emissions, and Deepki provides a way for building owners, managers and tenants to measure and therefore neutralize the carbon impact of their assets. For one of the world’s oldest and most important industries, Deepki is providing an important first step on the journey to achieving the real estate’s Net Zero goals.”
