Pioneering the first 100% decarbonized trail running collection
First up, the most important thing we can do is reduce our carbon emissions. But the science is clear: to keep global temperatures below 1.5°C, we must also actively remove carbon dioxide from the air.
That's how Mammut's climate strategy came to life. They're seeking innovative ways to reduce their emissions, but they're not stopping there. Realizing the importance of removing carbon dioxide from the air, they became the first company in the outdoor industry to partner with Climeworks. We use a technology called direct air capture to remove CO₂ directly from the air so that it can be stored deep underground. With our support, alongside their other partners, Mammut's entire trail running collection is 100% decarbonized, meaning their production emissions will not simply be compensated for, but physically removed from the atmosphere.
This May, you can join our race to net zero
We want to go beyond this new decarbonized collection and take climate action together. How? By running. Join the race to net zero Strava running challenge starting the 1st of May and become part of a global climate movement. At the end of the month, we'll remove 10 tons of CO₂ from the air so it can no longer contribute to climate change.

Behind the scenes
The desire to use business to take real action on climate change is driven by company culture but also by the individuals who shape those cultures.
In this short film, Mammut's Jeanne Mochel and Climeworks' Judith Hebekeuser discuss the personal motivations driving their work in this partnership and how they’re finding a way to take action on climate change every day they step into the office.
What exactly does Climeworks do?
At Climeworks, we offer carbon dioxide removal for individuals and businesses who want to fight climate change. With our service, you can take action on behalf of the planet by permanently removing your unavoidable CO₂ emissions.
To achieve this, we combine our direct air capture technology with permanent underground storage.
Direct air capture, as the term implies, is a technology that captures carbon dioxide directly from the air — such as our Orca facility in Hellisheidi, Iceland.
Permanent underground storage is what happens after we hand the air-captured CO₂ over to our storage partner — Carbfix. They transport the CO₂ deep underground, where it reacts with basalt rock through a natural process, transforms into stone, and remains for over 10,000 years. This makes our carbon dioxide removal service both effective and permanent.
Why can’t we just plant trees?
“We need to plant trees, but unfortunately, they die after 50-100 years and re-release the carbon they’ve pulled down back into the atmosphere” — Merritt Dailey, Science Advisor at Carbon Direct.
While trees are vital for capturing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and for habitat conservation and biodiversity, they can’t single-handedly solve the problem of global warming. We can’t scale afforestation to the required levels because it would demand far more land than we can provide, and regardless, when trees die and decay, they re-release the CO₂ they’ve collected over their lifetimes. That’s why we need both nature-based solutions, like afforestation, and permanent technological-based solutions, like direct air capture and storage.

Frequently asked questions
How does the climate action plan work?
With the climate action plan, you choose to remove CO₂ on a regular basis, either monthly or yearly. You can set it up as follows:
Choose your CO₂ amount: you can either choose a preset amount of CO₂ that you’d like us to remove in your name or tell us your own custom amount.
Select a monthly or annual plan: you can decide how frequently you’d like to pay, either monthly or annually
Cancel any time: there are no strings attached. You can cancel your subscription any time.
Do I get some sort of certificate?
Yes, you do! You’ll find your CO₂ removal order confirmation in your account as a PDF document. Here we state the amount of carbon dioxide ordered in your name. No one else can stake a claim to that amount.
How long does it take you to remove the CO₂?
In line with our plants' operation schedules, CO₂ removal orders are carried out within 6 years. That means 6 years from your one-off order or 6 years from each monthly subscription order.
Can I deduct the subscription from tax?
Unfortunately, no. The purchase of Climeworks’ carbon dioxide removal services isn’t tax-deductible as a donation because Climeworks provides a service in return for payment and isn’t a charitable organization.
