Rootstock Software, a recognized leader in the Manufacturing Cloud ERP space, today announced that it has renewed its partnership with Climate Vault, an award-winning non-profit that reduces and removes carbon emissions.
“Today, the way we live and do business continues to impact our planet and environment,” said David Stephans, CEO of Rootstock Software. “As a cloud ERP provider with a remote workforce, our carbon footprint is relatively small, but the audiences we serve, which are mainly mid- to large-sized manufacturers, have a huge potential to make an impact.”
Rootstock Software initially became a Climate Vault partner in 2020, which means the company has been one of Climate Vault’s first and original champions. Since then, Rootstock’s contributions have allowed Climate Vault to purchase and vault carbon allowance permits, equivalent to 1,623 metric tons of CO2 from government-regulated compliance markets. In other words, the company’s contributions have neutralized CO2 emissions that would have occurred if 182,626 gallons of gas were consumed, or 1.8 million pounds of coal were burned.
“Atmospheric levels of CO2 have reached the highest levels ever recorded. To help combat this climate challenge, we’re proud to support Climate Vault’s innovative approach to carbon reduction. It’s a fast, credible, and verifiable way for manufacturers to neutralize their carbon footprint and can serve as a valuable component to their sustainability plans,” added Stephans. “This year, we’ll be working with Climate Vault to raise awareness of their program among our manufacturing audiences and looking at ways our Cloud ERP can help manufacturers track carbon reduction and offsetting efforts.”
"We are thrilled to work with Rootstock on this important commitment to reduce their emissions footprint and support their sustainability goals," said Michael Greenstone, Co-Founder of Climate Vault and Milton Friedman Distinguished Service Professor of Economics at the University of Chicago.
Climate Vault’s breakthrough solution has driven significant impact since its inception and is poised for scaling. In just over a year, the company has reduced nearly one million metric tons of carbon emissions, the equivalent to eliminating 185,304 cars from the road for one year.
At Rootstock Software, our connected Manufacturing Cloud ERP enables hundreds of manufacturers to turbocharge their operations in a dynamic, post-pandemic world. With our solution natively built on the Salesforce Platform, our customers leverage the industry’s leading Cloud ERP, Rootstock, to connect with their suppliers, trading partners, and the broader ecosystem.

NUBURU, Inc., a leading innovator in high-power and high-brightness industrial blue laser technology, today announced that it has signed a joint technology agreement with GE Additive, to explore the speed, accuracy, and commercial benefits of blue laser-based metal 3D printing.
“As we continue to advance our proprietary blue laser technology, we have further increased both power and brightness to open up new applications,” said Dr. Mark Zediker, CEO and co-founder of NUBURU. “We’ve achieved key performance milestones that open new possibilities for significant advances in metal 3D printing. Working with GE Additive, and their expertise in metal additive manufacturing, will allow us to rapidly optimize our innovative area printing approach. That will accelerate the further expansion of our pioneering blue laser into innovative metal 3D printing solutions which have the potential to change the landscape of military logistics; aerospace manufacturing; medical device fabrication, and beyond.”
“As an industry leader in metal 3D printing and having been on the leading edge of qualifying parts in regulated industries, we’re excited to evaluate NUBURU blue industrial laser technology and its benefits,” said Chris Schuppe, General Manager, Engineering & Technology of GE Additive.
NUBURU’s novel approach to additive manufacturing is built on the foundation of blue light absorption by metals, a fundamental physical advantage that offers the highest efficiency laser-based melting for a wide range of industrially important metals. Combining the blue laser module with an innovative optical conditioning system, the NUBURU light engine is at the heart of the expected performance improvements. GE Additive will provide a powder bed system and expertise in the integration and characterization of this next generation prototype light engine, to quantify the performance improvements over existing technology.
This joint development agreement is in addition to an agreement with GE Additive to support NUBURU’s previously announced AFWERX Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II contract awarded to NUBURU in 2022.
Founded in 2015, NUBURU, INC. (NYSE American: BURU) is a developer and manufacturer of industrial blue lasers that leverage fundamental physics and their high-brightness, high-power design to produce faster, higher quality welds and parts than current lasers can provide in laser welding and additive manufacturing of copper, gold, aluminum and other industrially important metals. NUBURU’s industrial blue lasers produce minimal to defect-free welds that are up to eight times faster than the traditional approaches — all with the flexibility inherent to laser processing.
