The African Carbon Trust (ACT) is a stand-alone, registered non-profit organisation that aims to address the need for Africa to mitigate and adapt to the risks of climate change and unsustainable resource use.

We intend to do this by leveraging technology as a driver of human behaviour change that will result in the following:
- increased diversity of clean energy mix
- lowering emissions
- community development
- green enterprise development

We create innovative adaptation and mitigation projects and initiatives that turn the risks of climate change into opportunities for social, economic and environmental development. All our projects are designed to benefit the people who are most vulnerable to the risks of climate change – the low-income earner.
