We are Sunhat

And we’re committed to empowering sustainability teams to achieve maximum impact with their work.

Where it all started

While working at his previous company, a European venture capital firm, Lukas encountered the tedious process of answering sustainability questionnaires. He was eager to find a solution and discussed the problem with Ali and Alex, two tech-savvy friends from his network. When he approached them, Ali was working in B2B SaaS at an enterprise architecture management company and Alex was driving business innovation on the corporate side by implementing automation software.

After talking to dozens of companies, they discovered that sustainability teams spend hours responding to various questionnaires from customers and other stakeholders using emails and cloud documents. The manual and clunky processing often exceeded the capacity of the responsible teams. Lukas, Ali and Alex decided to join forces to create a better way for companies to manage the ever-increasing sustainability demands.

And that's how Sunhat was created.

About Sunhat

Sunhat was founded to shape the way companies exchange sustainability information with their internal and external stakeholders. At Sunhat, we're big believers in sustainability as the foundation for all products and services. We truly think that technology can play a key role in supporting businesses and achieving this vision. Sunhat streamlines the entire process, from mapping requirements to preparing and maintaining the requested information, empowering sustainability teams to deliver audit-ready responses — at the drop of a hat.
