People around the world are increasingly expecting companies to contribute to a better world. Companies that fail to meet these demands lose customer loyalty and see employees consciously quitting. Handprint helps companies turn their CSR strategy into business value. We source, monitor, and collect data from the most impactful NGOs around the world, helping companies improve resource allocation, solve audit and reporting issues, and improve their reputation. Through our tools, companies can imbue every business process with a digital fingerprint with the creation of a handprint.

Regional NGOs often lack international marketing, fundraising, and reporting capacity. Handprint handles all these processes, increasing the ease, value, and effectiveness of SDG-aligned funding flows. Our impact partner NGOs work across all sustainable development goals, but our main market traction is in support for mangroves thanks to their incredible carbon absorption capacity. Handprint enables independent verification of long-term carbon sequestration through a digital MRV marketplace, where service providers offer space-based intelligence for nature.

It is clear that there is a pressing need for us to contribute to the social and environmental regeneration of our world, and Handprint has the solution for this.


Handprint empowers companies to capture value from doing good by embedding micro positive actions into a company's business processes. We have shown this can increase sales in e-commerce & retail (with SaladStop!), increase attention in advertising (with Foodpanda), increase event registration (with Lazada), improve employee engagement (with Idemia SG), and open up new conversations with customers (with Thunes SG).

A suite of technologies has been developed in order to accomplish this. Critical in reforestation and carbon sequestration is trust and credibility. By default, companies resort to very expensive carbon credits, certified by analog bureaucracies. These organizations are now bottlenecks to progress and are losing their legitimacy. Handprint solves this by equipping its reforestation partners with mobile reporting tools to facilitate continuous assurance. We break down the process of impact creation and improve reporting frequency, quality, and auditability.

Type of Carbon Reduced/Sequestered

CO2 (Carbon Dioxide), Methane, Nitrous Oxide

Amount of Carbon Dioxide Equivalent Avoided/Sequestered

Through our ecosystem, our clients have funded the planting of 253,645 trees across Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Australia, Kenya, and Nigeria, leading to a conservative projected carbon absorption of 54,863 tons of CO2.

Means of Measurement

We combine state of the art digital MRV with allometric models and field information on survival rates. The technology for this was developed by our sister organization Global Mangrove Trust and Kumi Analytics in a MAS-supported project.

We partner with other service providers like Open Forest and Gentian to provide additional measurement and verification.
