FairClimateFund

FairClimateFund is a social enterprise that focuses on developing international climate projects. We were founded in 2009 under the ICCO Foundation. Since the merger between ICCO and Cordaid on 1 January 2021, we are part of the Cordaid Foundation. FairClimateFund’s mission is a fair climate: a world in which those who contribute the most to climate change invest in climate projects that benefit people most vulnerable to the effects of climate change. We finance and implement climate
projects together with our partners. We work according to Fairtrade principles and pay people in developing countries a fair and ethically good price for the carbon credits they generate with climate projects.

We focus on sustainable household energy projects such as clean cookstoves and biogas and nature based solutions such as reforestation projects. These climate projects reduce CO₂ emissions and deforestation and improve the living conditions of people in developing countries.

FairClimateFund has a unique position in the market as a provider of Gold Standard and Fairtrade certified carbon credits and wants to expand this further in the coming years. The team consists of 7 people.
