Missions and Values

Why Carbon Positive?

The term ‘carbon neutral’ is used a lot. This is where we look at our emissions and then create ways to offset those emissions bringing us to neutral.

It’s not that the things we do don’t create carbon but overall what we take down from the atmosphere is the same as what we create.

What if?

What if we created a goal of reducing the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere by creating a scenario where we actually output less emissions than we take down. So that overall number of 51.8 billion comes down to 51.79 billion…

Net-Zero by 2050

Ok it’s not a lot but it is a start and makes it easier the next year for everyone else!

So what if every country was carbon positive, suddenly that 51.8 billion would be 100 million and we would have to work a lot less in order to achieve our goal of net-zero by 2050.

Who
 We
 Are

We are John, Charlotte and Luke and we set up Terra Neutra to help you make a difference to climate change.

The idea for Terra Neutra formed out of our combined climate consciousness’ getting the better of us.

John has helped many large businesses with their net zero commitments and realised he wanted to help individuals too.

Luke has worked in the media and technology space and has done a LOT of flying for work in the past which means his own personal carbon footprint is much higher than the average person’s. Luke has also been a close observer of the way our mentality and behaviour has changed over the last 15-20 years (everything faster, more disposable, less thoughtful).

Charlotte started a more conscious sustainability journey when she took redundancy from her corporate job and set about reducing the amount of plastic in her household, as her interest grew this led to more and more changes and action.

We’re all parents with children ranging from 3 to 17, and the realisation that their future enjoyment of our planet is at risk was another motivation to found Terra Neutra.

We want to enable people to manage their carbon footprint so that they are living more sustainable lives.

We do this through advice on how to reduce your carbon footprint and how to offset it using our range of offset products.
