About Temwa Carbon Balance
In December 2019, we introduced Temwa Carbon Balance; now you or your business can balance your CO2 emissions by restoring and protecting carbon-rich community forests in Malawi.
We will support you to calculate your emissions, provide tips for reducing your carbon footprint and offer a way for you to balance emissions from your travel, energy and operations. The programme is based on three strands of work: tree planting; sustainable agriculture and agroforestry; and support for local governance. By working with community structures and improving household livelihoods we help ensure that your trees stay in the ground and protect a flourishing, green landscape.

In 2016, he joined the Temwa Malawi board, having pioneered the conversational development model, and we are thrilled to have him in Bristol for the event.
Richard Potter was born in Zambia and grew up in Africa. He is currently the Chief Technical Officer for Microsoft Services UK and Chair of Trustees for Temwa UK. Richard is committed to seeing communities transformed and the role technology can play in this.
