Our Mission and Values

What is a Calyx? 

A calyx is the ring of leaves that protects a bud before it is ready to flower. At Calyx Global we strive to embody a calyx by supporting carbon markets through our integrity ratings. We believe that the voluntary carbon market can only bloom if there is confidence in greenhouse gas claims and if sustainable development contributions have real impact. Our mission is to push for Better Carbon Markets for the Planet and for People. With this mission in mind, we are proud to introduce our core values.

At Calyx Global, we work and operate with these core values in mind:


We act with honesty, fairness, courage and humility. Wherever we operate, with everyone and no matter what the context is.


We work to make diversity, equity and inclusion real in our company. We believe everyone should be seen, heard, included, valued and empowered – a variety of opinions and backgrounds allows us to succeed and makes us a better company.


We’re building a culture that promotes curiosity, ideas, experimentation and continuous learning. We are open to and generous with feedback and make room to learn from mistakes.

Force for Good

We use our skills and assets to contribute to positive change - for our team members, for customers, vendors & partners, for the communities we work and live in, and for the planet and people.


We roll up our sleeves to get things done. We help each other, regardless of function, role or team.

As we move forward in our mission to support Better Carbon Markets for the Planet and for People, we intend to stay grounded in these core values. We strive to be a beacon of unbiased insight to those navigating the carbon markets today. Integrity is at the core of our work, which requires thoughtful and consistent evaluation of the projects selling carbon credits. We are made more powerful by the diverse experience and expertise of our team members, spanning across continents and borders. As we grow and learn, we will continue to produce a meaningful, positive influence for our stakeholders and the carbon market at large. Thank you for joining us in our journey.
