Pantas is the first and only software company in Southeast Asia to commit and get its targets validated by the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi). Pantas is also the only Malaysian company to be admitted to the inaugural UOB Greentech Accelerator along with 11 companies from India, Indonesia, Singapore, and Thailand. The effectiveness and accuracy of Pantas software were recently recognized and verified by The Business Times Singapore.
