Our Story

Making carbon neutral living
as simple as swiping the right credit card

Our research shows that most people want to help fight climate change but aren’t sure how to make a meaningful difference. That's where we come in. Carbon Zero empowers you to effortlessly act and transact according to your concern for our planet. How? The Carbon Zero credit card. 

As you spend with the Carbon Zero Credit Card, we automatically take your rewards points and invest them into carbon offsetting projects, thereby offsetting the negative impact of your spending.

Just like that, a little switch to a better card makes climate-positive living more understandable, innovative, and automated than ever before. 

Our Values

Our values are the non-negotiables that steer Carbon Zero's services, decision making, and conduct

When we look at our work and culture, this is what we expect to see:

  • Empowerment: We make it easier for people to act and transact on their values.
  • Inclusivity: We operate from the understanding that this is everyone’s planet, and as such, every community deserves access to and participation in our work.
  • Intersectional Problem Solving:  We’re holistic in both our analysis of the problems and our development of the solutions. Climate change is the most intersectional problem we face; our solutions should reflect that.
  • Initiative: We speak up and show up for the wellbeing of our planet and its people.
  • Transparency: We hold ourselves to a standard of specificity, honesty, and verifiability that keeps us accountable to our values. We want our community to understand how our technology works, how we’re achieving impact, and with whom we’re partnering to do so.
  • Integrity: We consistently align our actions with our beliefs. Integrity is arguably the value that we hold most dear. At Carbon Zero, we know that the scale of our impact will always be decided by the strength of our integrity.

Our Strategy

We’re guided by one question:
“How can we be most helpful?”

After extensive market research, we’ve identified the following as the most powerful ways that Carbon Zero can help everyday people in the shared fight against climate change:  

  • Education: Ensuring sustainability is as understandable, applicable, and actionable as possible. It's hard to be part of the solution when you can't understand or measure the problem.
  • Innovation: Infusing existing behaviors and systems with new opportunities for environmental and social impact. Familiar habits with new implications.
  • Automation: Making it as easy as possible to consistently act on your commitment to the environment through automated processes.

    Our Vision & Mission

    We believe in a world where our spending
    doesn't cost us our integrity

    Carbon Zero's vision is a world where our actions and transactions align with our concern for the planet and its people.

    Our mission is to ensure that the very credit card we use measures, monitors, and neutralizes our carbon footprints as we spend, thereby turning everyday purchases into powerful investments for environmental and social impact.

      Our Product

      Carbon Zero’s credit card, sustainable rewards system, and easy to use app enable everyday people to live carbon neutral lives

      • Here's How it Works:
      • Every time you swipe your Carbon Zero credit card, we automatically receive a portion of the standard credit card fee paid by the merchant.
      • Instead of investing this fee into environmentally harmful rewards (like airline flights), we invest it into industry-leading forestry and carbon capture projects, thereby offsetting the negative impact of your spending.

      • Whereas your everyday spending increases your carbon footprint, our rewards system automatically neutralizes your carbon footprint to achieve a Carbon Zero lifestyle.

      • All the while, the Carbon Zero app is providing insights on your behaviors, a calculation of your personal carbon footprint, information on your carbon offsetting projects, and user specific sustainability goals.
