Climate Impact Partners delivers solutions for action on climate. We believe that carbon markets have a critical role to play in delivering action by putting a price on carbon and funding carbon reduction activities to meet our global climate goals.

Together with the world's leading companies and quality project partners we will cut 1 billion tonnes of CO 2 by 2030 to transform the global economy, improve health and livelihoods and restore a thriving planet.

We do this by delivering the highest quality carbon financed projects, from which we create carbon credit and energy attribute certificate portfolios. This enables organisations to offset the emissions they can't reduce, put a price on carbon to incentivise change, and meet their ambitious climate goals.

Climate Impact Partners builds on the expertise, integrity, and innovation of two companies that have led the voluntary carbon market - Natural Capital Partners and ClimateCare . Fuelled by a relentless drive for rapid action and results, our global team continues to pioneer the market's growth, and set the standards for quality that will maximise its impact.
