We want to prevent the worst consequences of climate breakdown by avoiding 1 billion tonnes of emissions by 2050.

We will avoid these emissions by using technology to help businesses become the best versions of themselves, reducing their impact and helping them become more competitive in an evolving economy.

We’re a Christchurch, New Zealand, based business, founded in April 2022. CarbonTrail is a multidisciplinary team who believe in the power of technology in the fight against climate breakdown.
