Our mission

Making your climate change response effortless

Whether you are required to comply to a carbon compliance scheme, are subject to upcoming legislation, or simply want to act against climate change, we can help. We offer retail, brokerage and trade solutions to access the voluntary and compliance markets.

We will provide peace-of-mind and quality assurance: our team of analysts assess and rate each project and supplier generating carbon credits.

We will offer transparent and visual support to communicate your net zero strategy by offering retirement certificates and supporting information as needed.

Who we are

We are business people. With over 25 years each as executives in corporate aviation, we encountered the challenges of measuring our emissions and trying to develop carbon reduction strategies for our clients. We measured, we bought alternative fuel, we bought allowances and offsets. We struggled. We believe that investing in the protection of our climate shouldn’t be a struggle. This is why we founded Azzera.

our vision

Azzera envisions a society that is Naturally Net Zero

Azzera will be the world’s first centralized carbon market spot exchange. Today, there is a lack of visibility as to where your money goes. Azzera will create a marketplace that brings suppliers and buyers directly together. You will have full transparency and knowledge of where your funds will go while you become net zero. Together, we can scale technologies and projects that are needed to reverse climate change.
