We proved you can hike to the South Pole for 60 days surviving off renewable energy.


On January 15, 2018, Barney Swan met his father at the South Geographic Pole after 60 intense days of hiking. Their mission to conduct a polar expedition entirely on renewable energy was an extraordinary success.


The expedition was a world-first demonstration of cutting edge technologies robust enough to work in one of the harshest environments on earth.

The South Pole Energy Challenge

  • 1,500km over 60 days by foot

  • No heat or power from fossil fuels

  • No Showers

Now, we are challenging businesses and employees to be part of the story.


We focus on facilitating access to scale for carbon-negative products, services, and management resources


We are building a coalition of the committed – from conservationists to corporates –  into a force for our planet.


Together, we can rally behind solutions, big and small, to clean up 360 million tons by 2025.
