As VivaTech’s Low Carbon Partner for the second year, EDF is sponsoring the Impact Mile Planet, the brand new space showcasing startups committed to decarbonization. EDF Pulse Ventures has taken the opportunity to give visibility to 2 startups in which it invested last year: Carbon8 and BeZero Carbon. 2 other startups from the EDF Pulse ecosystem will also be present at the event: Sweetch Energy and Olenergies.

As a leader in low-carbon electricity generation, it was an obvious choice for EDF to sponsor Viva Technology's new "Impact Mile Planet" space, which aims to showcase innovative solutions for building a low-carbon world.

4 startups from the EDF ecosystem will be there from 14 to 17 June 2023: Carbon8, BeZero Carbon, Sweetch Energy and Olenergies.

EDF Pulse Ventures, a strategic partner for startups

EDF Pulse Ventures is not just another corporate venture. Not only does it invest financially in startups committed to building a low-carbon world, it is also keen to help them develop their business.

That's why EDF Pulse Ventures has given some of the startups in its portfolio the opportunity to be present alongside the EDF Group at Viva Technology, Europe's biggest event dedicated to innovation and tech.

2 startups in which it has invested will be represented on the Impact Mile Planet:



A british start-up in which EDF Pulse Ventures invested last year, specialises in carbon sequestration. It recovers certain dusts and ashes from the industrial sector, transforming them through a carbonation process into aggregates that can be used in the construction sector. Its container will be visible via a 3D application throughout the show.

It assesses the quality of carbon credits using strict, scientific criteria, and communicates this information publicly to ensure the transparency of the carbon credit market.
