The Carbon Free Group was set up as a limited company in March of 2008. We offered a platform for specialist trades, technology companies and SMEs with the specific knowledge and innovative skills required to deliver sustainable projects in the construction sector.

Since then our company has changed and grown to meet market demand and innovative opportunities in sustainable policy changing and the built environment.

In 2016 we restructured The Carbon Free Group and converted it from a Limited Company to a Not-for-Profit Community Interest Company (CIC) so that we were able to grow and deliver in ways that benefit sustainability and communities at large; having spawned businesses such as Flint Engineering and Kite Power Systems. More recently Power Transition and Calyx are further contributing to innovation and meeting 2050 zero carbon targets.
