At the core of our daily lives lies the struggle against the climate crisis. The planet, home to the living, is threatened by rising temperatures and extreme weather events. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the burning of fossil fuels and other human activities are responsible for the majority of GHG emissions, which have led to an increase in global temperatures and severe climate change impacts. Reducing these emissions is crucial for slowing and ultimately reversing the irreversible effects of the climate crisis. 

In search for a solution to the greatest challenge of our time, we developed our climate-tech pedometer.

Nextep empowers each step towards a low-carbon future and introduces a new reason to walking. Repurposing our daily habits and making an impactful change on the planet is easier than ever. Every step a Nextepper takes converts into contribution to internationally accredited emission reduction projects that contribute to Sustainable Development Goals via watching ads.

Making Climate Action a Routine 

According to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), internationally accredited emission reduction projects have the potential to reduce or avoid emissions by several billion metric tons of CO2e (carbon dioxide equivalent) per year.  

Nextep allows users to convert their steps into climate action by watching ads and, in return, a contribution is made to emission reduction projects in developing countries, improving the livelihoods of locals. This way, every step counts, literally. Nextep aims to make climate action a routine, allowing individuals to easily and seamlessly offset their carbon footprint. 

Every step becomes a part of a bigger progress. Nextep contributes to verified projects to reduce 1 kg of CO2e emissions from the atmosphere for every 2000 steps taken by Nexteppers. Though a single step might not seem so big, collective efforts of a community of walkers are powerful enough to make a change to save the planet. 

Building an Eco-Conscious Community 

Nextep builds an eco-conscious community, making an impact with a simple habit. Individual actions scale up and become collective when more people join in. When a community of Nexteppers offset their emissions through the app, we can collectively fund larger scale projects and make a greater impact on reducing emissions. 

Beyond Milestones: Making a Difference

Nextep is more than just a step counter, it’s a tool for individuals to combat climate change and make a dynamic impact on the planet. With Nextep, day-to-day activities serve a higher purpose, and any Nextepper can invite Earth on their next walk, now more eco-friendly than ever. Every step counts and with Nextep, we can make a difference. Nextep’s mission is to build a better tomorrow by allowing individuals to take climate action with just a few clicks. 

Nextep has ambitious goals, yet they are achievable once acted as a community. Varying from removing the annual carbon footprint of 250 cars on gasoline to avoiding the carbon footprint of 60,000 tours around the world by a plane, Nextep community goals help you materialize the impact you make collectively towards a healthier planet.
