About Low Carbon

Low Carbon is a purpose driven company that creates large-scale renewable energy in the global fight against climate change. Our mission is to protect the planet for future generations while delivering positive returns for our communities and investors. Our goal is to produce as much new renewable energy as possible while limiting our own environmental impact. We do this by developing, investing in, and operating large-scale renewable energy projects across the globe.

Our partnership with the Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company (MassMutual) is enabling us to accelerate the deployment of large-scale renewable energy and underpins our ambition to transform the global energy sector from fossil fuels to zero carbon.

All of us at Low Carbon know that trust is a vital component of the climate fight. We are a long-standing certified B-Corporation, a reflection of our fundamental ethos to balance the needs of the environment and society with our bottom line.

We are extremely proud of the highly professional and talented team at Low Carbon.  We have built a positive learning culture that incorporates respect, trust, collaboration, and a shared passion to combat climate change.  It is an open, friendly and supportive environment, and we are proud to say we work here. As we grow, we are committed to increasing diversity in the team, and continuing to foster an inclusive environment where we can learn from each other.
