About Me

ClimateCare is one of the longest established and leading environment-focused organisations in the carbon market. ClimateCare originates and sources carbon credits on behalf of businesses, Non Governmental Organisations and Sovereign States and runs many of the world’s largest corporate carbon offset programmes.



ClimateCare’s world leading experts develop and consult on innovative Emission Reduction Projects throughout the world – with a focus on Sub Saharan Africa and the World’s Least Developed Countries. These projects sit on the emerging nexus between private sector finance and the climate/development/aid sectors. ClimateCare uses carbon finance not only to reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions but to accelerate sustainable, low carbon development.

The team specialises in socially focused projects with tangible development impacts; renewable energy, energy efficiency, improved cookstoves and clean water provision. Every project we develop is designed to contribute towards fulfilling the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
