About Us

Who is Paying.Green®?

We believe climate change is the defining issue of our time. We also believe that Business and Consumer power are among the strongest forces on earth with the power to generate significant positive climate action.

We exist to bring these forces together.

Paying.Green® is a global community that has its origins in Australia, Spain and Sweden. It operates within a highly regulated and trusted local and global structure.

It has a not-for-profit environmental charitable foundation situated in Stockholm Sweden. It is also associated with other not-for-profit foundations or environmental organisations globally.

Our vision is to become the planet’s largest people powered carbon emissions offsetting community.

Why are we doing this?

The sad truth is that all empirical and scientific evidence, education, lobbying and activism to date have not yet generated enough urgency for governments and key stakeholders to address carbon emissions in the timeframes required to preserve the planet for our next generations.

It’s time.

Human generated emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases are a primary driver of climate change. To slow these down – with the eventual aim of halting – rising global temperatures, we need to stabilize concentrations of CO2 and other greenhouse gases in Earth’s atmosphere.

To stabilize (or even reduce) concentrations of CO2 in the atmosphere, the world needs to reach net-zero emissions. This requires large and fast reductions in emissions.  At a time when global emissions need to be falling, they are in fact still rising. The world’s emissions have not yet peaked. 

Emissions in one country affect every other country on earth. Every person, household and business on the planet should be measuring their emissions footprint and reducing it where they can. Globally we should be decarbonizing our energy systems and reducing emissions from food production and agriculture. We believe this is the ultimate solution.  We also respect this will take time to do responsibly, preserving people’s livelihoods and welfare. 

Until then, carbon offsetting is available right now – projects all around the world that reduce or avoid emissions and increase carbon capture.

Our atmosphere has no borders. Neither do we.

What makes us different?

Paying.Green®’s Smarter Net Zero® climate solutions deliver business value while raising the funds needed to deliver as many carbon offsets as possible while humanity transitions to net-zero emissions. We do this in a meaningful, efficient, and smart way.

You can measure our performance by one thing:
We maximize the number of carbon offsets per dollar of funding raised. 

No smoke and mirrors.

 Our key environmental goal ratio tells us how well we have performed, and is simply:

Dollars Raised / MT CO2-e offset 2

2. Metric tons of CO2 emissions offset – achieved through buying carbon credits and immediately retiring them.

How are we smarter?

We are not climate consultants or Over The Counter brokers. We disrupt the carbon offsetting industry by removing speculation and traditional fixed-price mark-ups. Instead, our atmosphere will benefit from the wholesale pricing, tax exempt, not-for-profit and transparent governance structures we have spent almost 2 years building before we even started thinking about developing fancy websites.

Our low-cost / high efficiency platform is not the only thing that makes us smarter.  We believe that being climate smart is business smart

We founded Paying.Green® on the simple but powerful idea that the strong public sentiment on climate change can be translated into positive action for the environment through a simple consumer choice: to only deal with businesses that are Climate Champions.
