Described by its founders as the green ChatGPT, a “first-of-its-kind” AI system for environmental practitioners called Ubuntoo has now launched.
Ubuntoo is already in use by teams at Fortune 500 companies such as The Coca-Cola Company, Target, and Subway, and is now set to be rolled out to the wider market.
Commenting on the tool, Mike Kehoe, EMEA President at Subway, said: “Whether it is to achieve more sustainable packaging or reduce carbon emissions, it is vital for our teams to have access to the most relevant solutions and industry best practices.
“Ubuntoo’s AI-driven wealth of expertise provided me with the means to make informed decisions in real-time at a fraction of the cost of a traditional consultant. We used their platform to successfully transition to sustainable uniforms for our sandwich artists in Europe.”

The engine draws upon an “expert database” developed over five years and aims to help companies and institutions seeking to make their operations and output greener, Ubuntoo says. Former Vice Presidents at Coca-Cola Peter Schelstraete and Venkatesh Kini founded Ubuntoo, which they’ve dubbed the green ChatGPT.
The software analyses corporate sustainability questions and offers solutions on topics including plastic reduction, recycling, energy transition, food and agriculture, and supply chain efficiencies.
Peter Schelstraete, Co-Founder of Ubuntoo, commented: “As global environmental legislation tightens, and consumers grow more environmentally conscious, businesses are full of ambition to be part of the solution.
“However, even for the most ambitious companies, it remains very hard to implement an ESG strategy. With Ubuntoo AI, we are leveraging AI and human expertise to provide better access to environmental solutions.”
