A Visit to Kariba: Why I Get Out Of Bed Every Morning

I know that all of our experts at South Pole work very hard, every day, to bring our products to our clients to help them attain their sustainability goals. And sometimes, the business feels like what it is - a business - focused on earning money to keep the business running. But it’s actually much more: our business has a purpose - and generates strong positive impacts. After my visit to our Kariba REDD+ project site in Northern Zimbabwe I wanted to share my message and thank everyone from our partners and clients to our supporters who are helping to make these projects happen.

Thank you for your interest!
