Matthew Owen is the Founder of Cool Earth.
Cool Earth is a charity that believes the most effective way to fight climate change is to protect the best carbon-storing technology that already exists: the rainforest.
And the best way to protect the rainforest? It’s not carbon credits or tree planting apps, it’s supporting the indigenous people who have been guardians of the rainforest for thousands of years. Cool Earth gives cash direct to rainforest communities enabling them to fund local projects and tackle the root causes of deforestation.
In this episode I chat to Matthew about his career journey from finance to charity, the current state of climate change, the most impactful changes we can make, why tree planting apps aren’t the solution and his journey building Cool Earth.
