THE KOOBI STORY
Our mission is simple - help as many people as possible offset their carbon footprints with projects that make a real difference.
FOR THE ENVIRONMENT.
We’re running out of time to beat climate change so one plus one must equal three – or higher.
That’s why we only source carbon credits that offset your carbon footprint while conserving wildlife and supporting community development!
We’re here for anyone up for the fight. For people who want to look their grandkids in the eye and say “we did our bit to save the natural world”.
We believe in the power of the individual. Small changes to a person’s lifestyle multiplied millions of times over can change the world.
And we’re optimistic that humankind will come together for the greater good. After all, that’s how our ancestors survived in the first communities millions of years ago in Koobi Fora, Kenya. Yes, that’s where we came up with the name!
Really though, when you strip it all away, the natural world is magical and worth fighting for!
Change your lifestyle. Change the world.

A problem solver by trade who is as comfortable on horseback as he is in a boardroom.
Tom has a B.Eng with a career stretching from the worksite to strategy and operations.
