Climate Action Leader
2022 AWARD FINALIST
Sponsored by Waka Kotahi
CarbonClick was founded to reverse climate change and support communities affected by climate change across the globe.
CarbonClick solutions are helping more than 1,000 businesses engage consumers in meaningful climate action. This is achieved by enabling consumers to make a voluntary carbon offset at the point of purchase. These contributions help to protect and restore the planet, creating better living conditions and healthier communities. So far, businesses and consumers have offset 83 million+ kg of carbon emissions, equivalent to 4 million tree-growth years.
CarbonClick applies the highest standards to the projects it supports. The company selects projects endorsed by independent registries like Gold Standard and Verra. As well as its own criteria, CarbonClick ensures contributions fund real projects that make a measurable and permanent impact for good.
However, this process is often expensive and time consuming. This results in numerous (and often community-centric) projects without scale or significant revenue from carbon offsetting (carbon credits) not having the resources or capacity to gain certification.
In response, CarbonClick will soon launch a Community Contribution Programme, to specifically bridge the gap between uncertified community projects and carbon finance. This programme will support viable yet under-resourced environmental initiatives with community-centric outcomes.
