Leveraging Markets to Solve Climate Change

Because carbon is the main culprit of climate change, our mission is to reduce as much carbon pollution as possible—as quickly as possible. To do that, we’ve used the principles of cost-efficiency and scale to create a market-based approach to preventing emissions now and removing carbon from the atmosphere long-term. As a nonprofit founded at the University of Chicago, we offer a cost-effective way to slow and eventually reverse global warming.

Credible, Verifiable Offsets Today

With your support, we will acquire buy carbon pollution permits on cap-and-trade markets so that polluters can’t use them—immediately reducing emissions.
