Edinburgh-based Ecometrica collates information from sources including satellites and drones to build maps and analytics that help clients track their environmental impact and implement sustainability targets. The firm’s software also uses machine learning to flag unusual activity and can aid governments in monitoring floods and deforestation. Last year it secured a £14.2m contract with the UK Space Agency to help protect 300m hectares of tropical forest in six countries including Brazil and Indonesia. Offices in North America helped sales rise to £5.5m in the year to March 2018 under co-founders Gary Davis, 38, Bertrand Revenaz, 41, and Richard Tipper, 54.
