Trees alone are not enough
We love trees and we need many more of them, but as leading scientists say: to achieve our 1.5°C goal, we also need technology solutions to remove CO₂ (Source: IPCC).
The CO₂ is permanently removed from the air
And put back underground where it can no longer contribute to climate change.
You can track your impact
You'll be able to measure precisely how much CO₂ we've removed in your name using your Climeworks dashboard.
You're helping to stop global warming
Your contributions help us scale our plants so we can fight global warming and help the world reach net zero emissions before it’s too late.
To mitigate climate change, we need all solutions to be working together. One measure alone is not enough.
We must do everything we can to reduce emissions and, on top of that, actively remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
Carbon removal solutions are not an "easy way out". The first step to getting to net zero is do everything in our power to reduce our current emission levels. We must reduce and remove emissions.
We need to actively remove excess emissions. Plus, over the past few decades humanity has emitted so much CO₂ that the concentration in our atmosphere is too high. Solutions like Climeworks are key for permanent carbon removal.
We remove CO₂ using a technology called “direct air capture.” It captures CO₂ from the air and puts it deep underground where it can no longer contribute to climate change.
Climeworks operates the first commercial large-scale DAC plant.

We help leading companies reach their sustainability goals by removing past and present unavoidable CO₂ emissions from the air. Join them today and help fight climate change.
Because other solutions aren't enough on their own.
Climate action is experiencing a paradigm shift. The UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change recently reported that reducing emissions alone won't be sufficient to meet the Paris Agreement's goal.
They said that the only way we can keep global warming below 1.5 °C is to actively remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
Direct air capture is the most efficient andeffective way to remove carbon from the air.
Reducing emissions is crucial, but it's not enough.
Firstly planting and protecting trees is absolutely essential in fighting climate change. Unfortunately, we have reached a point where trees alone are not enough anymore because there is too much CO₂ in our atmosphere. That’s why we need more trees and technologies like direct air capture.
