Empowering profitable investments in a net zero future

About us

Zerolytics empowers profitable investments in a net zero future by addressing the dual challenge of mitigating climate risk and delivering competitive returns. Recognizing the intricate journey companies embark on to achieve net zero, we transcend traditional linear financial analyses.

Our goal? To ensure that asset managers no longer must balance between protecting the planet and profit but merge the two based on more reliable forecasting models built on digital twins and system dynamics.

Our advanced approach uncovers the real-world transitions of complex, global companies, revealing commitments to environmental pledges, and the associated financial implications. With Zerolytics, asset managers bridge environmental stewardship with their responsibility for delivering profitability

Our team

The rapidly expanding Zerolytics team, based in Oslo, Norway, is comprised of seasoned industry experts, software developers, modelers, AI specialists, and a team of analysts with deep insights into climate transition and net zero plans. This includes CFA Charterholders and analysts with experience from NBIM (Norwegian Sovereign Wealth Fund), collectively enhancing our expertise.

We are always looking to add more talent to our team, so please use our contact form to get in touch.
