Encamp Secures $30 Million in Series C Funding to Help Enterprises Transform their Environmental Compliance
Encamp, an award-winning enterprise technology startup for environmental compliance data management and reporting, announced $30 Million in Series C funding from Drive Capital. Funding was led with full participation from previous investors, including OpenView, High Alpha Capital, Allos Ventures, and more. The investment follows a significant year of growth for Encamp, which saw a 500% increase in ARR in 2021.
Businesses continually find it cumbersome to maintain environmental compliance because of the growing complexities to collect, manage and analyze data across varying state guidelines. Given that the general minimum for regulatory non-compliance is $62,689 per day/per violation just for EPCRA alone, the threat of non-compliance can become expensive and have consequences for reputations too. The funding will enable Encamp to further develop its product and go-to-market functions to help enterprise companies digitally transform their environmental programs and successfully manage compliance efforts.

“We’re seeing an increase in the number of consumers holding organizations accountable for their actions, especially as it relates to environmental responsibility. Members of executive leadership are seeking tools to help prioritize environmental compliance as a result,” said Luke Jacobs, CEO and Co-founder of Encamp. “Our partnership with Drive Capital enhances our product to continue Encamp’s mission of helping organizations with their compliance and reporting efforts and will fuel our growth into 2023 and beyond.”
Encamp plans to further develop the platform’s capabilities on a global scale by:
- Enhancing existing product features to streamline data collection and analysis across environmental media, data sources and regulatory applicability
- Developing compliance reporting technology for Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) reporting, the Clean Water Act and Clean Air Act over the next two years
- Expanding hazardous material and waste compliance automation capabilities internationally by 2024
