Release of our annual carbon emission results

NOVEMBER 8th, 2023

Quambio carbon emission report can be found here. We decided to not only measure our emissions for the past 12 months, but cover the full four-year period since inception. The climate problems we are facing today as a global society are not only due to our current emissions, but also the result of our compounding impact over time. We invite all companies to therefore think about what they emit today, reduce it, but also go back and think about offsetting their past actions.

In the case of Quambio and given our small size, our total emissions to date amount to about 23 TCO2. Over the past12 months, we emit about 10 TCO2. Our emissions are growing year over year, a result of our growth. However, our business model is about enabling reductions. The positive, emission reduction impact of our projects far exceed the negative impact of our platform.

Quambio turn four!

SEPTEMBER 11th, 2023

Today, we celebrate Quambio’s fourth year anniversary! We are still very little but just like a toddler, we are quickly developing a personality.

Over the past year, we expended our consulting activities, we completed the development of our mobility App, organized a new record number of mobility challenges, and ventured into the world of impact investments and climate financing.

Today, our platform can comprehensively support the needs of a company, from the its first step into climate action, to offsetting emissions that cannot be directly reduced.

Launching our impact investment projects

JULY 1st, 2023

Today is a significant day for us, as we officially enter the world of climate financing and impact investment. We do so with two projects, one in Kenya and one in Rwanda.

In Kenya, we are working with a small start-up which delivers electric cookers to families in Kakamega county. The project not only contribute to reductions in emissions, but also enable healthier and more economical cooking. Many families in Kenya rely on charcoal and wood for cooking. Electric devices offer a cheaper and healthier alternative, which also helps protect local forests.

In Rwanda, we are also working with a local company involved in public transit. We are initiating a multi-prong approach to incite people to use buses, by making it more comfortable (and even rewarding) to do so. Here again, our impact extends beyond the climate aspect to touch on noise pollution and traffic congestion issues.

 We are looking for partners to help us scale these programs and touch as many as possible. Email us for more information.

New ordinance on mandatory climate disclosures

DECEMBER 5th, 2022

The Task Force for Climate-Related Disclosures (TCFD) is a framework that was published in 2017 by the Financial Stability Board.
