Pinwheel Corporate Partnership

Fabriola uses her solar light to read at night

Pinwheel has curated the world’s most impactful carbon and biodiversity initiatives on their platform. Pinwheel’s engagement tools bring these game-changing projects to life for their clients’ staff and customers.

Why the partnership works

Common Mission

Pinwheel’s mission is to generate funding for the best climate projects in the world in order to drive great results for clients and funders while creating impact for the planet and impact for brands. Together, we are creating a brighter future for both people and the planet through the distribution of clean, safe solar lights. 

Social Impact

Social benefits are vital and central to both Pinwheel and Solar Aid’s mission. Switching to clean solar electricity drives better health and well-being outcomes, ranging from better educational results because a child can study after dark, creating safer environments for delivering babies at night and extending the working day to generate a better income.

Environmental Impact

At the heart of Pinwheel is their mission to support their corporate clients to fund planet repair. SolarAid offers a scalable solution to reduce the amount of fossil fuels being burnt. By helping eliminate environmental distress through providing clean, renewable energy sources in hard-to-reach rural areas in Africa more people are using solar-powered lighting for their energy needs than kerosene lamps and paraffin candles. This switch prevents toxic fumes into their lungs and the Earth’s atmosphere.

"We are delighted to be able to offer our clients the opportunity to fund SolarAid via the Pinwheel platform, which empowers businesses, their customers and employees to repair our planet by discovering and funding the most impactful carbon and ecological projects. SolarAid has already proved popular with clients and we are looking forward to further developing a very rewarding partnership."
