How can we solve the climate change challenge? It’s a question we are all asking and there is a growing recognition that we need to get much smarter. Arracca is about more than just personal carbon offsets. Our mission is to turn climate neutrality into a mass movement and unleash the power of individual action at scale.

Together, we can transform action into collective impact and make a measurable difference against the climate crisis. 

Arracca was founded to create the biggest possible impact for the climate — collectively and individually. Here’s how we aim to breaks that down financially:

  • 10% running cost: To make Arracca possible, we use 10% of what we make to cover our running costs including IT development, project selection, and infrastructure.
  • 70% individual impact: This goes directly to your personal offsetting projects, making sure you’re carbon-neutral from day one. These funds plant trees, expand solar energy access, and are invested in carbon sequestration projects.
  • 20% collective impact: No one can solve climate change alone. That’s why we invest 20% into impact marketing, spreading the word and getting more people involved. That way each user multiplies their own impact by reaching others.

Arracca will also make money every time you use your Arracca card from something called ‘interchange’ this is a standard fee paid by all merchants (online and physical stores) to accept card payments. We’ll use that fee to offset carbon even on the free entry level plan whenever you spend £60

So the more you use our card for your everyday payments, the more we can do to build a sustainable plant together.

We’re not, and here’s why: We have years, not decades, to reverse global warming. This means we need to reach as many people as possible as quickly as possible, or in other words, we need to scale fast.

One sure fire way to do that? Placing investment into a robust, impact-first business model. That way we make sure to achieve the biggest climate impact we can.

We’re also in the process of becoming a certified B-Corporation, a new kind of business that balances business and purpose. After all, we consider the climate to be our biggest shareholder — and a healthy planet is the best dividend.
