Briink is at the forefront of the emerging ESG knowledge economy, a market valued at approximately EURO 64 billion and poised for rapid growth due to escalating demands for sustainability. We recognize the unique challenges faced by ESG professionals—costly, repetitive tasks coupled with intricate domain knowledge. Our mission is to transform this landscape by harnessing the power of generative AI solutions.

We provide a revolutionary approach to automate critical aspects of ESG workflows, liberating knowledge workers from mundane tasks and allowing them to focus on what humans do best: work creatively. We need all the creativity and human ingenuity we can get if we are going to hit net zero within our lifetimes.

With a product-led sales business model and a commitment to building a comprehensive AI-powered ESG Automation Software category, Briink is poised to become the leading platform for the ESG knowledge economy, driving immense productivity gains in the journey towards a net-zero future.
