LowCarbon Earth is the Asia Pacific Low Carbon Lifestyle Accelerator, launched as a collaborative effort by the United Nations Environment Program and Massive Earth Foundation. It supports start-ups that make sustainable goods and services more readily available. From low carbon mobility options to products that reduce plastic waste, to solutions that reduce the carbon footprints of our lifestyles.
LowCarbon Earth holds a vision to create a prosperous but not wasteful society, and an economy that is self-sustaining. Individual efforts may seem like drops in the ocean however, the impact made by these efforts in lifestyle and consumption patterns by millions of people will make significant contributions towards a more sustainable Earth.
