Leading with the confidence of robust analytics

Our Mission: 
Offer the world’s most insightful sustainability enterprise platform
Founders Craig Cammarata and Yann Risz constantly faced the same frustrations as their clients: sustainability reporting software solutions were too high level to effectively develop mitigation strategies. Existing solutions did not provide specific insights into the industrial and agricultural processes needed to reduce environmental impacts such as carbon emissions, especially in the supply chain.

There was a time when reporting emissions was “good enough”— until it became “not enough” once companies started committing to targets like Net Zero. High level reporting and missing financial integration made it impossible for suppliers, customers, product development and other critical stakeholders to effectively collaborate and identify the strategies to reach targets like Net Zero.  

So, in 2015, Craig and Yann joined forces to meet the ever-changing needs in this space. Filling the gap between granular product Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) software and corporate reporting software required a fundamental bottom-up restructuring and integration of financial data. This took four years and by 2019 AITrack was born. AITrack is an industry disrupter that remains unique in the market. 

The AITrack Difference


Good for high level reporting
but limited insights for how to
reach targets, particularly
regarding scope 3 emissions;
no financial integration.

Good for individual product
assessment but cannot scale
up to the corporate level to
provide detailed impact
accounting across the
value chain; no financial

1) Generates the granular insights
needed to reach targets like
Net Zero, at scale.
2) Provides the financial integration
needed to align incentives between
product development, finance,
procurement, suppliers and
customers—the stakeholders
essential to achieve
such targets.

Our Leadership

Aligned Incentives is led by a group of seasoned practitioners with decades of experience in the field of sustainability metrics and technology, serving many of the world's largest organizations.
Yann Risz
Co-Founder and CEO
Yann’s background is best summarized in three concentric circles. At the core is an upbringing in Congo and many months spent traveling and living in remote villages with his documentary film making family, which triggered a strong interest in societal issues. The second circle is that of business, spanning a career that included Volkswagen in Germany, McKinsey in San Francisco, Finland, Singapore, Malaysia and Australia, and startups, where Yann developed a focus on better understanding the incentives of business stakeholders and building strategies around these. The third circle started at the United Nations in New York and is the integration of the first two circles, tackling environmental and social issues with analytic business tools and led to the founding of Aligned Incentives. Yann graduated Valedictorian from EDHEC in France and received his MBA from Harvard Business School. In 2021 Yann was honored with the Alumni of the Year award by his alma mater.
Craig Cammarata
Co-Founder and COO
Craig is the Co-Founder and COO of Aligned Incentives and an innovator at heart. He has focused most of his career on rethinking life cycle assessment from the ground up to make it more useful at the corporate level as well as better integrate financial and sustainability metrics. Before starting Aligned Incentives, Craig was the Director of LCA and Decision Analytics in the Environmental Finance Group at Enviance, where he led client projects with a focus on developing financially driven sustainability strategies. Craig offers expertise on metric development, financial valuation, LCA, and decision support modeling. Prior to Aligned Incentives and Enviance, Craig was a Principal Analyst at Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC) where he developed and managed CTC’s Sustainability and Decision Support technical capabilities. Craig holds a MS in Sustainable Systems and a MPP from the University of Michigan, with a focus on systems modeling, LCA, and data science.
Sarah Boyd, Ph.D.
Chief Strategy Officer
Sarah is the Chief Strategy Officer of Aligned Incentives and has spent her career using life cycle assessment (LCA) to drive decision-making in the corporate world. Prior to joining Aligned Incentives, she led product carbon footprinting for new product introductions at Apple and managed the company’s external initiative to drive carbon reductions in semiconductor fabrication. Before that, as a senior consultant with Sphera and thinkstep, Sarah led over 100 product sustainability and sustainability strategy projects with clients across sectors, including ICT, electrical utilities, aerospace, construction and consumer products. Her book Life-cycle Assessment of Semiconductors has served as a definitive source of environmental impact data for integrated circuit manufacturing. She holds a Ph.D. and M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from University of California, Berkeley, and a B.S. in Product Design from Stanford University.
John Sinnott
Chief Technology Officer
John is responsible for the team that develops and operates the AITrack software and supporting infrastructure. He is highly experienced in managing the design, development, and operation of large-scale cloud-based applications. Before joining Aligned Incentives, John served as CTO at several B2B and B2C software companies. As CTO at Enviance (now Cority), he was instrumental in building the first multi-tenant cloud-based Environmental Management System which was adopted by many of the largest companies in the retail, utility, and oil and gas sectors. At Aligned Incentives, John is excited to return to his passion of building software that helps companies improve their sustainability. John holds a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science from Pomona College.

Our Advisors

The Aligned Incentives team did not innovate in a vacuum. In fact, we are honored to benefit from the support and collaboration of some of the most recognized leaders in life cycle assessment:
Professor Michael Hauschild
Professor at Denmark Technical University.
Prof. Hauschild is a globally renowned leader in life cycle impact assessment. His long list of achievements includes winning the SETAC Europe Edana Award for Lifetime Achievement in Life Cycle Assessment—2018, being Co-Founder and Director of the DTU Centre for Absolute Sustainability—2022, being Chair of the SETAC-Europe task force on Ecotoxicity Assessment in LCIA—1998 and 2002, and Chair of the UNEP/SETAC Life Cycle Initiative Taskforce on Assessment of Toxic Impacts in LCIA from 2002-2007 and 2017-2019. He is also a Member of the Editorial Board of The International Journal of Life Cycle Assessment.
Dr. Scott Matthews
Former Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University.
Dr. Matthews has spent much of his career develop- ing tools and methods to help support and teach about decisions that span economic and environmental aspects of product life cycles. He led the development of Carnegie Mellon’s widely used Economic Input-Output Life Cycle Assessment model and recently published a freely available university course textbook on LCA (www.lcatextbook. com). He has served as chair of the Committee on Sustainable Systems and Technology with the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, member of the advisory board for the EPEAT Green Electronics Standard, and on the Executive Committee for the American Center for Life Cycle Assessment.
