Kentaro Kawamori
Co-Founder & CEO, Persefoni
North America

Kentaro Kawamori is the CEO and Co-Founder at Persefoni, an Enterprise-scale platform for carbon accounting, management, and reporting real-time across a number of global standards.

Through early experiences in both software and energy industries, he recognized that enterprises weren’t reducing their Carbon Footprints because they couldn’t holistically visualise the damage they were doing. Kawamori’s motivation in starting Persefoni, was to help Businesses and capital markets combat Climate Change through continuous carbon calculations and analytics.

He has focused his career on bringing transparency and capability to companies looking to manage enterprise data transformations and carbon transactions. Prior to Persefoni, Kawamori held multiple executive positions across energy and technology sectors. At the age of 27, he became the youngest Chief Digital Officer ever at a Fortune 500 energy company, Chesapeake Energy Corporation.
