SaaS platform Weeva celebrates first anniversary

Firm used by 200 businesses to collect analyse and track sustainability data

Saas platform Weeva has celebrated its one year anniversary since it launched in 2022.

The firm has built a community of over 400 individual users around the world in its first year of operation.

Julie Cheetham, co-founder and managing director of Weeva, said: “When we launched Weeva last year, it was apparent that the mood was already shifting, and that there was an urgent need to help the tourism industry improve its impact on people and the planet.

“Our platform enables travel and tourism businesses of all sizes to measure their progress on their sustainability journeys and identify opportunities to minimise environmental impact, build commercial resilience, and contribute to preserving thriving communities and ecosystems.”

In its first year, Weeva has also been used by over 200 travel and tourism businesses, that are largely hospitality providers, to collect, analyse and track data across 18 interconnected sustainability parameters.

Over the course of the year, users have captured, managed and analysed a wide range of data, including 1.6 million kilolitres of water consumed or used and 88,000 tonnes of scope 2 carbon emissions under management.

Other data points include 2,000 tonnes of waste recycled and $600,000 spent on community development projects with 30,000 direct and indirect beneficiaries.

Lindsey Walter, co-founder and director of Weeva, said: “In our first year, we have grown alongside our users – listening to their needs – and this month we celebrate the Weeva community’s sustainability achievements.

“As we look ahead, we are doubling down on our efforts to make sustainability management as accessible and simple as possible. We can’t wait to see how our users continue to shape sustainable travel well into 2024 and beyond.”
