Impact Carbon’s mission is to improve health and the environment in developing countries through clean energy projects that reduce carbon emissions.

Impact Carbon works with investors, project developers, philanthropists and NGOs to quantify the carbon emissions reduced by our projects and to verify them and uphold rigorous carbon standards.

Impact Carbon is headquartered in San Francisco, California with an office in Kampala, Uganda.

Impact Carbon has also started a social business called Impact Water. Impact Water sells, installs, maintains and repairs high-impact water purification systems to schools.
