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.
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.
Our most urgent task is drastic emissions reductions. We must take immediate steps to reduce our carbon footprints, which will require significant commitments from businesses and governments worldwide as well as individual efforts.
We also need to actively remove unavoidable CO₂ (emissions that are extremely hard to avoid) and historic CO₂ (emissions accumulated over generations) from the atmosphere. Solutions like Climeworks are key for permanent carbon removal.
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.

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.
