Director of Project Research

Geisa Príncipe

“Over the last 20 years, I have reviewed thousands of different carbon projects from all over the world. During this time, I have seen the positive impact that carbon projects have on both planet and people. Not only do they reduce carbon emissions but also improve the lives of individuals on the ground.”

“I joined Cool Effect because of its approach to Carbon Done Correctly, finding the highest quality carbon projects and providing a platform to have their voices heard. By connecting individuals, organizations, schools, and businesses to these projects I know the world will be a better place.”
