Lead the race toward net zero
Our CO₂ removal solution is permanent, measurable, and scalable.
Many of the world’s top businesses partner with Climeworks on their journey to net zero
Corporate and climate-action leaders trust Climeworks to remove their unavoidable and historic emissions from the air. Their long-term commitments are critical in the scale-up of the direct air capture industry and demonstrate truly inspiring climate leadership.
First reduce, then remove
To mitigate climate change, we need all solutions to work together. We need both emissions reductions and the active removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere in order to reach net zero emissions by mid-century. This is the most promising way to maximize our chances of limiting global warming to 1.5°C.
How your commitment helps fight decades of climate-changing carbon emissions
By purchasing carbon dioxide removal from Climeworks, you join a movement dedicated to fighting climate change. Your contribution removes unavoidable CO₂ that we can’t prevent with emissions reductions and historic CO₂ that’s been trapping warmth in our atmosphere for generations. But beyond this, you’ll also be contributing to the scale-up of the direct air capture industry, allowing us to build the capacity that science tells us we’ll need to limit global warming to 1.5°C.

Why don’t we just plant more trees?
Firstly, planting and protecting trees is absolutely essential in the fight against climate change. Unfortunately, we’ve reached a point where trees alone aren’t enough because there’s too much CO₂ in our atmosphere. That’s why we need more trees and technologies like direct air capture.
Here's some more background:
We need afforestation, but it can't be scaled to the required levels as it demands far more land than we can possibly provide.
Human impact on our climate has led to droughts, wildfires, and deforestation, which have affected the reliability and durability of storage in trees and forests.
When a tree dies and begins to decay, the CO₂ it's collected is slowly and progressively released back into the atmosphere.
