Mesh-AI -- a data and artificial intelligence consultancy -- has been named AWS Sustainability Partner of the Year. The honor surfaced during the AWS re:Invent 2023 conference in Las Vegas.
The award recognizes Mesh-AI's commitment to "helping our customers meet their sustainability goals while driving innovation through data, AI and AWS solutions," the consultancy said.
Mesh-AI, founded in 2021, is based in London, United Kingdom. The company is backed by Columbia Capital (Alexandria, Virginia), which committed $30 million to the AI consultancy during the business launch.
On the sustainability front, Mesh-AI points to multiple business and customer milestones. They include:
- Enabling a highly regulated energy organisation to leverage modern data practices to understand and drive profitability, respond to environmental factors with agility and drive market-wide change through regulatory RFIs and lobbying, the consultancy asserted.
- Reimagining regulatory reporting to reduce the required reporting time from five days to minutes, and reduce incident risk and frequency, with £MM cost saving implications, the consultancy said.
