Charities and partnerships

Being a responsible company is a large statement, something that has to be entwined within the very fibre of a company. Discover the charities and partnerships we support as part of this.



Copenhagen-based startup, Klimate, are passionate about helping companies achieve Net Zero through effective and ethical carbon removal technologies. Separate from carbon offsetting, which concentrates on compensating for emissions by making equivalent reductions, carbon removal is focused on lowering the overall concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere. Klimate source carbon removal technologies from all over the world, analysing both their social and environmental credentials before selecting which projects to endorse. Through Klimate, Explore will be supporting multiple carbon removal projects, from soil sequestration to more complex Direct Air Capture projects for a wide-ranging impact.

Cool Earth

We work alongside Cool Earth to support indigenous communities in the Amazon rainforest in Peru through community engagement, education and empowerment. Protecting carbon-rich rainforest is key to averting climate breakdown, and we work together to develop sustainable livelihoods that outprice deforestation.
