Every Farmer an eCO2preneur

Background Community Climate Solutions 

Community Climate Solutions is a start-up focused on developing holistic and trusted carbon offset projects that benefit both the climate as well as the rural subsistence farmers. Headquartered in Zug and Lusaka, we have a team of over 30 people and are growing rapidly, with the majority of staff permanently residing in and serving over 100’000 farmers in Zambia.

Our carbon capture model is to empower rural subsistence farmers to reduce and remove carbon emissions from their own agricultural land and its surroundings. Our interventions are centered on (i) reducing uncontrolled bush fires and (ii) restoring the Miombo ecosystem, all by equipping and incentivizing the individual farmers. These activities increase carbon storage, which we monetize on behalf of the farmers using the voluntary carbon market. Executed with our social mind set and mission, this allows us to multiply the farmers income and drastically reduce severe poverty.

Our differentiating factors are (i) focusing on direct household payment, with farmers getting paid for the amount of carbon they remove on their own fields and surrounding areas, enabling them to become self-motivated eCO2preneurs. (ii) Our projects are embedded in an existing and expanding ecosystem comprising vocational education facilities, a microfinance institution and an affordable housing provider, which ensure community payouts are multiplied and invested for generations.
