Early movers in the new low-carbon economy, Balance Carbon Pty Ltd was established in 2007 to support organisations grappling with data management and reporting associated with the introduction of a raft of new national and international policy, legislation and standards related to clean energy, greenhouse gas emissions and carbon pricing.
At that point the team including registered Greenhouse and Energy Auditors with the Clean Energy Regulator (CER), PhDs and professors focussed on data science, audit and advisory services.
By 2011, following years of working with many of Australia’s largest and leading sustainability-focused organisations, we had developed a sophisticated internal database system for the purposes of supporting internal processes, securely storing a growing volume of data and allowing sophisticated analysis.
During 2014, armed with clarity and validation of our growing customer needs, the opportunities of digitising our services and uncovering some latent internal software genius, we took the first steps towards a whole of business transition from consulting services to software as a service by providing customers web access to our internal database, which we called C3online.
By mid-2016, following the attraction of more genius, a focused product management campaign and our commitment and passion for collaboration and data driven decision making from a ‘single source of truth’, we had launched Trellis, which superseded C3online.
In October 2018 our new company name Trellis Technologies was launched replacing Balance Carbon to better reflect a broader vision, mission and services focussed on structurally supporting the business areas of finance, procurement, facility/asset management and environmental management.
To date Trellis has already processed and interpreted nearly $1B of transactions associated with around 4.5Mt/CO2-e.
We are continually driven by our vision, mission, values and customer needs with a focus on agile development and optimising transactional intelligence to drive business, financial and environmental sustainability faster.
