Our Mission

Enable organizations to reduce, remove, and utilize their emissions with carbon science

We are a purpose-driven carbon management firm dedicated to helping organizations around the world reach their climate goals. We make carbon science accessible and actionable with our end-to-end platform.

Global citizens with global impact

Whether a scientist, developer, or carbon markets expert, we are united by our mission to take climate action now. We are experts in our fields and we act with confidence. Located across 4 countries and 10+ states in the U.S., we offer both remote-friendly work options and dynamic, in-person experiences with offices located in Seattle, WA and Oakland, CA.

Diverse backgrounds bring diverse perspectives

We recognize that teams with diverse backgrounds and different experiences are powerful. Bringing together a variety of perspectives only enhances how we can effectively address the climate crisis. Together, we are creating an environment where everyone is celebrated and anyone can succeed.

Carbon Direct’s main office is in Seattle, Washington. We are centrally located near the famous Pike Place Market and Sculpture Park. From our office with panoramic views, we can look out at the beauty of the Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains, and be inspired in our work to save the planet.

"Our work helps to prevent greenwashing and ensure that investments in carbon removal really benefit the climate. I feel like I’m working with the ‘good guys’ – I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t!"

Pete Smith, PhD

Science Advisor

“At a personal level, I am Colombian. I am the daughter of a farmer and I am the mother of a toddler. These three things remind me everyday how important our mission at Carbon Direct is."
