Last year, Climeworks made its carbon dioxide removal solution available to the public, allowing people and organizations to have carbon dioxide permanently removed from the air in their name. Since then, many pioneers have joined Climeworks’ mission to fight climate change and now Shopify is one of them.
Climeworks has been chosen as one of the climate-positive projects that Shopify supports through its Sustainability Fund. With this fund, Shopify commits to give a minimum of USD $5 million annually to the most promising, impactful technologies and projects fighting climate change.
Climeworks is thrilled to reveal that Shopify will be purchasing permanent storage of atmospheric carbon dioxide. This is a win-win for Shopify and Climeworks as this purchase helps to scale and commercialize climate technology for massive impact on the long term. Shopify choosing to purchase carbon dioxide removal from Climeworks, shows that businesses are convinced of the Climeworks’ solution and its potential to help fight climate change. Pioneering efforts, such as Shopify’s, increase the demand for carbon dioxide removal and help to make climate positivity more attainable for everyone by supporting the kickstart of a whole new industry.
