Project Finance Startup Unety Partners With ecoAmerica to Save 16 Million Metric Tons of CO2

Leveraging Unety's SaaS-enabled marketplace, powered by AI, the partnership can save more than the annual emissions of over 116 respective countries



NEW YORK - September 24, 2020 - (Newswire.com)

​​Unety, a novel platform that democratizes financing to upgrade commercial buildings, today announced the launch of a nationwide partnership with ecoAmerica, one of America’s largest environmental non-profits serving several sectors including the faith community. As the technology backbone for ecoAmerica’s Blessed Tomorrow program, a nationwide initiative that helps faith denominations and their 87,000 houses of worship to lead on climate and reduce their carbon footprint, the Unety platform will make it easy for member organizations to achieve their environmental commitments, upgrade their buildings for future generations, and better leverage their properties to survive these hard times. 

Unety is a SaaS-enabled marketplace, utilizing AI to automate project development by intelligently guiding projects to thousands of qualified project-delivery professionals and billions of dollars of project funding. Driven by a proprietary data engine that instantly identifies, qualifies, and connects contractors and capital providers to property owners and projects, Unety makes it possible for even the smallest business to gain affordable access to clean energy solutions. 

In partnership with Blessed Tomorrow, Unety will bring the necessary technical and financial resources to houses of worship across the country, enabling them to save energy costs, reduce carbon emissions, and enhance cash flows. With the Unety platform, Blessed Tomorrow’s houses of worship will be able to instantly plan projects, shop for vendors, and access one of the largest networks of its kind in the U.S. 

“By combining recent innovations in project finance and newly available datasets with our AI platform, Unety empowers commercial property owners of any size and type with the most advanced techniques and tools in real estate project development,” said Unety’s Founder, Parker White. “Putting this power into the hands of those that need it most has been our driving force since our beginning. And no organization embodies that inspiration better than ecoAmerica.” 

The program is designed to make a global impact. If 80% of ecoAmerica’s houses of worship achieve a 30% carbon reduction that is typical through the Unety platform, then the program will have generated more than $1B of clean energy projects, saved over $1.3B in energy costs, and mitigated 16 million metric tons, the equivalent of planting a forest larger than the state of West Virginia.  

“We are proud to partner with Unety to bring transformative resources to our faith partners, to help them lead on climate and support their communities during a time in which it is needed most. We are confident that our program will help partners strengthen the efficiency and sustainability of their sanctuaries, with welcomed new avenues of financing,” said Executive Director of ecoAmerica, Meighen Speiser.

Counting whales from space pitched as key to saving them

Oct 21, 2020

PORTLAND, Maine — An aquarium and an engineering firm in Massachusetts are partnering on a project to better protect whales by monitoring them from space. New England Aquarium of Boston and Draper of Cambridge say whale conservation needs new, higher-tech solutions to protect whales from extinction. So, the pair is working together using data from sources such as satellites, sonar and radar to keep a closer eye on how many whales are in the ocean. The effort has an easy to understand name for a project involving complex data and surveillance — the aquarium and firm are calling the project...

US heads to court to build Trump border wall in Texas

Oct 21, 2020

HOUSTON — Three years into Donald Trump's presidency, the U.S. government is ramping up its efforts to seize private land in Texas to build a border wall. Trump's signature campaign promise has consistently faced political, legal, and environmental obstacles in Texas, which has the largest section of the U.S.-Mexico border, most of it without fencing. And much of the land along the Rio Grande, the river that forms the border in Texas, is privately held and environmentally sensitive. Almost no land has been taken so far. But Department of Justice lawyers have filed three lawsuits this month seeking to take...

Space Force will start small but let Trump claim a big win

Oct 21, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is celebrating the launch of Space Force, the first new military service in more than 70 years. In signing the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act that includes Space Force, Trump on Friday can claim a victory for one of his top national security priorities just two days after being impeached by the House. It is part of a $1.4 trillion government spending package — including the Pentagon's budget — that provides a steady stream of financing for Trump's U.S.-Mexico border fence and reverses unpopular and unworkable automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic programs. Space...

House passes $1.4T government spending bill amid impeachment

Oct 21, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Democratic-controlled House voted Tuesday to pass a $1.4 trillion government spending package, handing President Donald Trump a victory on his U.S.-Mexico border fence while giving Democrats spending increases across a swath of domestic programs. The hard-fought legislation also funds a record Pentagon budget and is serving as a must-pass legislative locomotive to tow an unusually large haul of unrelated provisions into law, including an expensive repeal of Obama-era taxes on high-cost health plans, help for retired coal miners, and an increase from 18 to 21 in the nationwide legal age to buy tobacco products. The two-bill package,...
