Job van Hooijdonk. livse in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. He is the Co-Founder of Regreener, a platform for investments in a greener future. They compensate carbon footprints by planting trees, protecting rainforests, and supporting certified green energy projects. Job used to be a corporate lawyer (specialized in mergers & acquisitions) with Clifford Chance, a British law firm. After doing this for 3,5 years, he decided it was time for a change. Lots of people around him were willing to take action against climate change but struggling to find a way that was easy and useful. He realized the market for carbon compensation was non-transparent and he wanted to change that. That’s why Regreener was founded. Regreener is a platform for carbon compensation and investments in a greener future. They offer individuals, families and businesses the opportunity to compensate their carbon footprint in an easy, affordable and transparent way. They plant trees on behalf of our users.They do this in Kenya and Mozambique, worker together with local communities. So far, over 20,000 trees have been planted (in the first four months!). Furthermore, they protect rainforest in the Western Amazon, currently by supporting a beautiful project in Equador! Last but not least, they invest in Green Energy & Renewables via certified projects.
