We are Toco, a company driven by a passion to combat climate change by revolutionising archaic aspects of the global financial system. Our mission is to create a new era of environmental consciousness and action through the introduction of Tocos, a groundbreaking carbon currency. Tocos represents one tonne of carbon dioxide that has been removed from the atmosphere, giving individuals and businesses a tangible way to offset their carbon footprint and contribute to a sustainable future.
At Toco, we believe that traditional political and economic structures have fallen short in addressing the urgent climate crisis. Our innovative approach breaks free from the limitations of the past and empowers people to take climate action into their own hands. By uniting as a civil community, we can redefine the nature of money, challenge conventions, and lead the way where others have failed.
Our digital currency is constructed to ensure transparency, security, and scalability for our users. Through a user-friendly digital platform, individuals can easily convert their earnings into Tocos, transforming their economic wealth into a powerful store of environmental value. This not only accelerates carbon reduction efforts but also creates a vibrant marketplace where carbon assets can be exchanged, valued, and invested in, all while driving positive environmental impact.
With Tocos, we aim to disrupt the status quo, increase demand for carbon reduction, and facilitate a seamless transition towards a sustainable economy. By embracing Tocos, individuals, organisations, and businesses can actively participate in the fight against climate change, unlocking new opportunities for environmental wealth while creating a better future for all.
Join us in this exciting journey as we revolutionise finance and empower global citizens to make a real difference. Together, we can forge a path towards a greener, more sustainable world.

The culture is built around transparency, trust and extreme candour. Our way of working embraces “work-from-anywhere” and responsible leave (i.e. be responsible and take as much leave as you need) whilst encouraging people to have fun and extract meaning from their work; being aligned to the purpose of the company is extremely important to us.
We are a product led company with cross functional teams. Lots of trust is extended to team members to let them grow, experiment, be creative, make mistakes and learn from these. We prefer small teams and aim to keep a very high bar when hiring members of our team; we expect people both senior and junior to be deep thinkers, adept problem solvers, customer focused, investment minded and know how and when to take a pragmatic vs purist approach.
