Carbon Tanzania
Avatar Of Allglobalupdates
Written by allglobalupdates

Carbon Tanzania is in the business of nature conservation. We are a business that creates value in natural resources for Tanzanians, through community-led protection and management of forests and nature. We have created an innovative model of conservation that drives revenues to communities who are taking action to protect their natural resources and which allows them to take control of their own livelihood and social development needs.

We generate value for Tanzania’s economy and its people by producing nature-based carbon credits, the sale of which enables local people to earn revenues from the protection of their landscapes. These “verified emission reductions (VERs)” allow global businesses with credible decarbonisation and nature-positive strategies to invest in a locally-led nature-based solution that delivers results for the climate, communities and biodiversity.

Reaching our global climate and nature goals is impossible without protecting existing forests. Carbon Tanzania was founded by two dedicated, lifelong conservationists who have lived and worked to achieve lasting solutions to nature conservation challenges across Tanzania for the past 30 years.

The company has established itself as both a local and global leader in the voluntary carbon market, generating some of the most sought-after, high quality, nature-based carbon credits in the world. Its projects have gained international recognition, winning awards and prizes that highlight their uniqueness and contributions to changing the narrative around the role of communities in nature conservation and the need for new and innovative approaches to its funding.

We are a thought and practice leader in the sector in Tanzania, where our first-mover status has allowed us to build trust across a wide range of stakeholders, including a geographically and culturally diverse range of community partners, government and non-government actors and business leaders.

Over the past 5 years we have evolved from a Founder-driven start up business into a market-leading company with a rapidly growing team, both in our Arusha HQ and across our project sites. We are dedicated to building a company and team that reflects balance and equality in gender and diversity.
