about us

Carbon Visuals is a unique environmental communication business. We believe in the power of 'seeing' what is currently invisible - carbon emissions, local air pollution, global resources...

Our core team combines rigorous scientific methods, programming, environmental understanding and creative media skills.  On larger projects we are backed up by a growing group of great associates.  Our core expertise is to turn data into captivating imagery that anyone can relate to.
