The Sustainable Climate Impact Fund (SCIF) is a pioneering social enterprise set up by the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) to improve health, wellbeing and the environment through targeted community-based projects.

Solutions through partnerships

We're building on LSHTM’s knowledge and expertise in global health and working in partnership with communities affected by climate change to deliver sustainable solutions. These solutions will provide health, socio-economic and environmental benefits that can also generate carbon credits for offsetting.

Ethical offsetting opportunity

We help organisations towards achieving ethical and sustainable carbon reduction goals by partnering with us in a scheme that offers real social impact for positive change.

Our projects.

Projects in the scheme are being carefully chosen and independently verified to ensure they meet local and environmental needs in ways that bring health, wellbeing and long-term socio-economic benefits.
