A platform for carbon removal solutions and pioneering businesses

The Direct Air Capture Summit is a platform designed for business leaders that would like to better understand and discuss high-quality carbon removal solutions, such as direct air capture. The private sector plays a key role in driving forward climate solutions and the summit highlights this by bringing together industry experts, project developers and opinion leaders.

In 2021, Climeworks successfully hosted the second version of the Direct Air Capture Summit.

Industry momentum is growing fast

Corporate determination to create a net-zero world is real: an increasing number of companies take climate action and develop strategies to get to net-zero emissions. The challenge is to create net-zero roadmaps that not only include emissions reduction efforts, but also emissions removal, as some residual emissions will likely remain part of corporate value chains. Climeworks gives this growing industry momentum a platform: the Direct Air Capture Summit.

"If you as a company are not participating and learning now and establishing these cooperations in the carbon removal market, you will miss out in the future."

Two days filled with inspiration and determination

In 2021, the two-day event featured a top line-up of speakers, including renowned climate scientists, carbon removal project developers as well as pioneering companies that are driving the carbon removal market. Especially the private sector plays a key role in driving forward climate solutions and the summit strongly underlined this.

Yes, there is a huge challenge ahead of us, but the summit showed that the determination to get to net-zero emissions exists among project developers, companies, individuals and policymakers. This is what makes the carbon removal industry unique: different stakeholders and solutions working together to create a better future for all us of.

"My hope is that with the summit this year we're creating a platform for exchange, that we were able to present you companies, people, foundations working on carbon removal."
