Climate Collective is a non-profit focused on empowering entrepreneurs throughout the Global South by building, or strengthening, local climate startup ecosystems by bridging the gap between the development and private sectors.

Climate Collective focuses on two broad areas of sustainability


There is little debate anymore that the time for action to fight Climate Change is now. However, if we are to achieve net-zero emissions by 2070, the International Energy Agency has estimated that 35% of the technologies needed are still at the demonstration or prototype stage, or not even invented! Startups will play a key role in developing these new technologies and solutions.


As the demand for resources continues to grow rapidly driven by greater economic development, there is a need to re-think the “take-make-waste” model to one that is much more sustainable. The concepts of Circular Economy aim to re-think this model deeply and create new products and solutions for consumers that reduce the strain on our environment and natural ecosystems
