Our Mission: we accelerate the transition to a climate-smart society
In the summer of 2006, five young enviropreneurs from scientific, economic, and environmental backgrounds teamed up in Zurich to found South Pole Carbon - later South Pole. Their vision was to bring together people from innovative NGOs, multinational organisations and top notch business consultancies to create the distinctive mix of minds needed to address the formidable challenge of climate change. And so the founders of myclimate joined former World Bank officers, UNFCCC experts and McKinsey consultants to realise their initial vision: to help accelerate the transition to a low-carbon economy by enabling the necessary financial instruments, solutions, and collaborations that allow our clients to place capital in climate-smart projects.
