We are Pure Carbon Blue
While the initial development stage was funded by both founders, the first impact investors have committed to our mission in 2021. The company was formally founded on 28 October 2021 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Its home-base is located at Edge Olympic, a vibrant place for entrepreneurs.
We steer on diversity, capabilities, and a just culture. We drive our business on environmental impact alongside with the financial returns. Pure Carbon Blue strives to become a certified B-corporation.
