Matterport Releases Inaugural ESG Report: Digital Twins are Paving the Way for a More Sustainable Future

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 25, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Matterport, Inc. (Nasdaq: MTTR) today released the company's first Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) report that assesses the impact of Matterport's products and programs toward driving sustainable and equitable outcomes. The report, based on 2021 data, provides a benchmark to establish company-wide ESG goals and commitments.

The topline environmental findings confirm Matterport's digital twins are highly effective at helping customers achieve sustainability goals. Matterport's revolutionary technology allows for the creation of high-precision, immersive 3D digital twins of millions of buildings and other real-world locations, enabling people globally to work smarter and more sustainably by reducing the need for business travel and easing the strain on the environment. The company commissioned independent carbon accounting experts, Minimum, to calculate the emissions reduction potential of using Matterport's digital twin platform. The findings were compelling, revealing a significant reduction in emissions through the use of Matterport's digital twin technology:

"Matterport's first ESG report is a strong statement of our company's values and commitment to providing inclusive and equitable access to any building or location in the world," said RJ Pittman, Matterport's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "The ability of our digital twins to help customers decrease their carbon footprint is truly inspiring. Although there is still more to be done, the information presented in this report represents a promising indication that our platform can assist businesses in achieving their sustainability objectives while also cutting costs, particularly in these challenging economic times."

Matterport's own carbon emissions in 2021 totaled 14,097 tCO2e, with the bulk of the company's carbon footprint (98%) embedded in its supply chain. The company has begun to favor suppliers that collect and disclose their emissions data and recently partnered with third parties globally to manufacture the Pro3 Camera, eliminating much of the trans-Pacific transportation required from the previous supplier's network. The company expects the work with these new partners will have the effect of reducing an estimated 5% of Matterport's greenhouse gas emissions as compared to 2021, and significantly shorten the distances required for the company's products to reach Asian and European customers.
