Why Almond was created
70% of the global population are concerned about climate change, but Almond Impact estimates that only <0.1% know their carbon footprint - and even fewer offset it.
Almond is a platform that empowers individuals and businesses to easily understand, reduce and offset their carbon footprint - and become carbon balanced.
The company's free app turns spending into a force for good, by automatically planting and protecting trees whenever purchases are made with its responsible brand partners via a connected bank card.
The Market Opportunity
The green economy market capitalization is $4 trillion, and is projected to reach $12 trillion in savings and revenue by 2030. Meanwhile the offset market was $300 million in 2018 having grown over 140-fold in 10 years. Almond Impact believes that it is well-positioned to be at the forefront of these rapidly growing markets.
Its business model includes three core revenue streams: commission on consumer purchases, SaaS brand membership and offsetting products for businesses and individuals.
- Partnered with WWF, Stockholm Environment Institute to provide carbon analytics and the company is speaking with two Challenger Banks to enrol their customers to its platform.
- Member of Hatch CoLab's SDG Accelerator, selected from 1,000+ impact projects.
