We believe the key to tackling climate change is a fast transition to sustainable energy production, energy efficiency and fair market conditions for handling negative externalities. That's why we created CO2IN.
CO2IN (read and pronounced like the English "coin") is a virtual tool that enables companies and individuals alike to fight climate change. Via CO2IN’s simple mobile app, anyone can buy and trade the emission allowances that would otherwise be used by Europe's greatest emitters to produce more CO2.
The main goals of this project are:
- to increase the demand for the EU ETS emission allowances
- to introduce the EU ETS system to the non-EU countries and motivate them to implement the system globally
- to extend the EU ETS to all sectors
- to make the process of reducing emissions - traditionally weighted down by the complex tax and legislative measures - simple and transparent
- to make carbon-efficient production accessible to everyone
The educational version of the CO2IN app is out!
Download the educational version to learn more about your carbon footprint and to test the functionality of the app. Try to make some basic transactions. To experiment with the transactions, you will need a mock-up credit card. You can easily create one at www.getcreditcardinfo.com.
The full version of CO2IN will be available in 2Q 2021.
CO2IN is new currency prepared to be launched in 2Q 2021. The emission allowance serves as CO2IN´s underlying asset, the same way gold used to be the underlying asset for a currency in the era of the gold standard.
The CO2IN enables institutions and individuals alike to take part in protecting our climate. This is how The CO2IN works:
Flying around the globe or buying stuff that travelled from the other side of the world? Make up for it and reduce your carbon footprint easily and effectivelywith CO2IN.

The CO2IN project was developed by Amper, a Prague-based provider of services in the field of renewable energy. Since its founding in 2011, Amper has been developing decentralized renewable energy systems. Amper's key task is to enable cities, communities, businesses and individuals to effectively lower their carbon footprint and grant them access to the renewable energy market. This aim is being pursued by individual companies within the group, namely by Amper Savings (focused on energy savings), Amper Asset Management (active in the field of development, financing and operation of renewable sources), and ROAD to INTEREST, which operates the CO2IN project. Further subsidiaries of Amper Holding are Amper Industry (responsible for the design, construction, installation and measuring of energy production facilities), and Amper Meteo (specialized in weather forecasts for the energy sector).
This is how we launched the CO2IN project in September 2020.
