Cost Carbon: Accounting for People and Planet

We are a movement of humans taking action to stop warming, waste or want.

The Challenge
All of us are changing the world we live in with every action and transaction every day.
However small that impact is, it is cumulative and compounding. 
On the first of January 2023, only 84 months remain to halve emissions and other wastes. 
Each month that passes with no discernible change in action is a significantly increasing percentage of lost time.
In that brief seven-year window, we must end the era of digging, burning, and waste.
All the energy we need to survive and thrive is already here.
There is a better way.

The Mission
We are on a mission to slow, stop and reverse warming waste and want in seven years.
A just transition; from one state to another must be fast, coherent, and universally accessible.
The opportunity needs to be fair and equitable for anyone.
That is our aim.

Who we are
CostCarbon is not owned. It exists only in the action and outcomes of people like you.
It is a not-for-profit with global ambitions.
A group of about 20 clever people has contributed to this system of fast, orderly and equitable change.
We propose a new way to trade and exchange goods and survive.
We have developed a new way to create an economic advantage by doing the right thing.
This new system is globally applicable, locally adaptable and has no green premium.
Imagine that it costs less to do the right thing for consumers, for businesses and for governments?
#yeswecan
We are committed to resetting linear capitalism to include environmental costs and social value in any transaction anywhere by any one, every time.


The Opportunity
The unique opportunity is to grow the economy and reduce our footprint on Earth.
The more we spend, the better we do.
By doubling the size of the economy, we halve the impact.
Everything we see around us has embodied value in the material it is made of.
Everything has lost and latent value that can be captured in every transaction.
We can unlock abundance at the same time as solving global warming.
#yeswecan
Those with the most have the most to gain, and those with least; more.
The billionaire can become an agent for change, a climate champion, and strive for the impact of a poor carpet waver because that is where wealth is generated.
We can stop warming waste and want by reversing the imagined and constructed system that has gotten us to this situation.
#yeswecan
Waste becomes directly proportionate to value and a commodity of wealth.

Action
We can act immediately to reverse the flow and loss of value as it exists today.
The extractive terminal linear economy rewards scarcity where only 10% of the value is captured.
In a circular economy, 90% of the material value is found and captured.
Regenerative abundance is unlocked and made available to everyone.
In a circular economy, we are all producers and consumers; there is no start and end.
Extractive supply chains become value-generating networks where growth is downward and outward. Our place on Earth is necessary for the rapid regeneration of natural systems.
Consumers can see the source and implications of their purchasing decisions.
Individuals and communities are empowered to call on businesses and the government to serve people and the planet.
#yeswecan
Economic activity doubles and doubles again as fast as humanly possible.
The flow and exchange of money is a pathway to balance with nature.

The 7-year Plan
Every human alive has a ticket to the future so let’s make it count together. 
The Costcarbon system is independent and not motivated by profit.
It is not owned in a conventional sense because every one of us plays a part.
 - Your support will help demonstrate a growing commitment to the change necessary in the time available.
 - Every ticket sold is a vote for a new financial, social and natural capital accounting system. 
 - Will you join us in helping to realize what humanity is capable of?
Can we meet our potential in the face of this species-level extinction emergency?
#yeswecan
The CostCarbon initiative has a 7-year all-inclusive plan to change how we source, use and consume natural resources. 

This crowdfunding allows you and anyone to support this 7-year transition.

All of us
All of us are changing the world we live in with every action and transaction every day.
However small that impact is, it is cumulative and compounding. The planet is warming.
All of us are involved, and we will all benefit if we stop warming waste and want. 
We must do things differently; this system can be used by anyone anywhere.
You, us, and everyone can fix global warming through minor cumulative and compounding impacts.

The System
We have designed a platform to track, trace, and verify our economic system's inputs, activity and outcomes.
The platform enables systemic transition change to be adopted responsibly by businesses wishing to produce and consumers wanting to procure. It will allow better governance to meet the needs and serve the people and planet we depend on.
It will account for the entire cost of production, supply, utilization and recovery of material resources and make it beneficial.
It has been and will be applied to programs of public benefit.

The Ask
 The funds will enable projects and communication to take action and spread the word.
We are seeking funds to build a relatively simple mobile application that is free to every human on the planet.
We also need to:
 - grow our network of people like you.
- document and demonstrate this new system of counting and accounting of what matters
 - communicate the story of relationships with each other, and with business and how our natural world is almost all that matters, and,
 - give you a part of this new economic system to share with your friends and enable change.

We are selling tickets to the future @ $1.67AUD each. 
Why $1.67? 
 - Is how much a billionaire can make in a day divided by the human population 
 - It recognizes that we are all equal!
 - It addresses the argument that climate action is too expensive. It is not!
 - It is accessible to almost everyone, anywhere. 

For just $1.67 you have taken action and own a part of the solution.
Get one for your family and friends, and buy them for your staff, your football club or local constituent. 
Buy them for Christmas and for folk you don't know on the other side of the planet!

There are enough for everyone, but only one for each of us! 
Lean in, reach out and imagine, then visit us at CostCarbon
