“I want:

  • To mitigate climate change globally
  • To protect biodiversity
  • That our children, grandchildren and all other people will have a future on our earth.

I am proud and excited to be a part of this global organisation which helps ensure that our earth will continue to be a great place to live on.”


Åke Friberg- Executive Director and Co-founder. Sweden

“The climate crisis is not about the extinction of life on earth. It’s not even about the extinction of humanity. It’s about consequences of the global warming that we already can see and, if we do nothing, will escalate rapidly. We – humanity – are the cause of that. Only we can do something about it.  

Join Paying Green® – Together we can do something.’ (ÅF)
