About Us

Our world

10 Billion World – a not so distant reality and a relentless thought for many.

We believe that with the right set of tools, a population of 10 Billion people can still have a bright future. 10B World was born with a vision to equip organisations with the right tools to evolve to a society where all businesses and organisations are sustainable and self-sufficient.

Our mission is to accelerate the transition to a sustainable and self-sufficient society by offering businesses the knowledge, data and technology to help them operate 100% sustainably.

We use our passion and expertise to support organisations to strive towards net-zero, deliver cost savings and profitability, as well as progress towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Our why

We are a group of innovative thinkers and leaders from the environmental technology and sustainable investment worlds that have joined forces to provide a solution to the challenge presented by the transition to a sustainable economy in which everyone will have to limit their carbon footprint.

We have seen the bold statements from governments, companies and investors about becoming Paris-aligned or net-zero by a certain date and yet many are not clear on how they can achieve this. We bring specialised teams together with knowledge across carbon assessment, Geosolutions, environmental project implementation and sustainable investments to get you to your goal while also using the aggregation of this data to provide industry benchmarks and peer group data against which you can measure your organisation.
