Our Mission

Our mission is to build a global alliance of businesses in the services sector joining forces to take immediate and ongoing action on climate change and become carbon negative for the benefit of the planet and society.

Our commitment to UN Sustainable Development Goal 13, Climate Action, is core to fulfilling our purpose of helping create positive, enduring change in the world.

Our History

The Carbon Negative Alliance was founded to help businesses, particularly those in the services sector, become carbon neutral and then take the next step to becoming carbon negative.

Our team’s experience includes work with the Ocean Drilling Program, the second largest U.S. National Science Foundation program after NASA, as well as post-graduate research at the University of Southampton with a full scholarship from the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), the leading funder of UK environmental science.

Our Inspiration

We took our inspiration from the landmark announcement by Microsoft regarding their plan to be carbon negative by 2030 as well as the vision of The Earthshot Prize – the most ambitious and prestigious of its kind – designed to incentivize change and help to repair our planet over the next ten years.

We found that while there were plenty of organizations and consultancies helping larger corporations and product-centric businesses, there was limited information or support available for the small and midsize business (SMB) market and the services sector.

We believe the services sector which includes the fastest-growing sectors by GDP can play a vital role in addressing climate change.
