Our Mission is to Reduce Carbon Emissions

Combining science, expertise, and transparency, we are creating a community built around one simple vision: give people the power and confidence to band together and reduce the carbon pollution that causes climate change.

How We Do It

We go above and beyond, holding the highest standards for our projects and their effectiveness. By doing so, we allow anyone to confidently and effectively fight against climate change.

Where We Started

We started in 1998 with clean-burning cookstoves. Since then, we’ve grown into a globally recognized non-profit platform that’s successfully reducing carbon pollution.
