A system to coherently address the interrelated crises of warming, waste and want.

There is a pressing need to address the crisis of climate change and reduce carbon emissions in order to avoid worst-case scenarios.
Reducing carbon emissions is just one outcome of the CostCarbon initiative.

If we can count and so cost carbon we can cost almost any material at atomic, molecular or material level. The counting and accounting and accountability of materials is key to a regenerative economy.

We cannot properly value anything if we don’t know the true cost and, if we do not know the true cost or value then the price of things is based on externalizing the environmental and social costs. Today this is normal and so the price of things is arbitrary and generally inequitable if we are to address warming, waste or want.
The targets set under the Paris Agreement are not on track to be met, however we must achieve them as a minimum if we are to avoid catastrophic consequences.
That means we must halve emissions by 2030.
We need globally coherent systems to achieve that equitably and in an orderly way; a just transition.
CostCarbon is a powerful tool that can help us reach these goals by providing a transparent, universally accessible system for tracking and accounting for the environmental and social impact of products and services.
We have designed this system by going back to first principles and asking some basic questions:

  • What are our needs and the purpose of our economy?

  • What work has been done and is underway that provides guidance to the ideal economy for a regenerative future?

  • What does an equitable and resilient economy look like in 2030, 2050 and beyond?

  • What of our existing economic system aligns to this vision can be built upon and what does not work?

  • How can our economy grow to meet our growing and collective needs and aspirations but also be regenerative and in balance with nature?

CostCarbon is part of the solution by providing any individual, business or government visibility of the impact and opportunities presented through the transition that is underway.
