About us

Who We Are

Carbon Tanzania occupies a unique position in the conservation world in East Africa. A social enterprise at heart, we seek to reframe the way people view and utilise natural landscapes. Our pioneering business approach ensures that value is realised through a network of stakeholders, from the forest communities themselves through to the companies and individuals providing the finance.

What We Do

We empower communities and local governments to realise value from the sustainable management of their natural resource.

Our targeted projects generate verified forest carbon offsets which are sold on the voluntary market.

Revenue is paid directly to the communities for development and livelihood needs. These communities have autonomy over how the revenue is spent.

Most communities spend revenue on needs such as accessing health services and paying school fees or further education needs

Because of this system the impacts of our work automatically meet many key SDGs.

Advisory Services

We bring extensive expertise to large landscape conservation challenges. Our business approach to conservation demands that people receive revenue directly from the sustainable management of their natural resources.
Our most successful strategy to date - developing large scale REDD projects in locally managed forest areas - can be a powerful conservation tool in specific circumstances. As well as developing our own projects, we are involved in advising other organisations on how best to develop and implement this results-based approach.

Our Team

Project Operations

Carbon Tanzania operates an innovative decentralised management system for its project implementation work. This allows us to operate a small, highly versatile core team, while the resource owning communities implement the key activities required to protect their resources. This means that the maximum number of community members are directly involved in the protection of their resources, the governance of the project and the sharing of the revenues earned. This strengthens community engagement, entrenches ownership of the natural resource management process and confers fiscal responsibility to the participating communities.

Office Team

Marc oversees Project Operations, often in the field as well as from our Arusha base, and leads the search to find and develop new areas where our approach can deliver lasting results. As a Founder of Carbon Tanzania, maintaining a connection with the landscapes in which Carbon Tanzania works is critical to Marc.

Global Sales and Finance

Jo’s focus at Carbon Tanzania is to ensure business sustainability through financial management and sales, and to ensure that we have the financial capacity to scale our work when opportunities arise. I also work to develop our communications strategy, and to explore new client and investor relationships.

Sarah’s work at Carbon Tanzania focusses on effectively communicating what we do, both to our commercial customers and our strategic partners and stakeholders working to better conserve forests. Sarah develops and then implements our ongoing communication strategies which educate companies and the wider community in the diverse co-benefits of purchasing carbon offsets from Carbon Tanzania’s REDD projects.
With a background in marketing and sales in the luxury tourism industry, Sarah spends much of her time for Carbon Tanzania helping environmentally responsible companies to realise the valuable CSR and PR opportunities that come with their commitment to reducing their carbon impacts. This often involves providing tailor made solutions to each client, a level of customer engagement that reflects our commitment to engaging everyone closely in the fight against climate change

Be Carbon Smart

Our Partners

Carbon Tanzania is a network organisation. Our experience has demonstrated that collaborating and co-operating with organisations who share our vision and goals, yields enhanced results with greater efficiency, both in terms of resources used and funds deployed.

An understanding of the importance of forest community land rights, the development and promotion of good governance, and respect for community development priorities unites us with our partners.

Our inherent qualities of innovation, dynamism and flexibility mean that it is natural for us to form strategic partnerships in the fight against global climate change.
