European carbon accounting startup Plan A raises $27M from VC and corporate heavyweights


Plan A, a carbon accounting and ESG (environmental, social, and governance) reporting platform for corporations, has raised $27 million in a Series A round of funding led by U.S. VC giant Lightspeed Venture partners.

Technically the funding is an extension of a $10 million Series A round it announced nearly two years ago, meaning for all intents and purposes this is the closing of a $37 million Series A round, taking its total raised to $42 million across its six year history. But perhaps more notably, its latest round also includes participation from some major names from the corporate world, including Visa, Deutsche Bank, and BNP Paribas’ VC arm Opera Tech Ventures, among numerous other angel investors.
