The 2023 Direct Air Capture Summit successfully concluded in Zurich bringing together all facets of the ever-expanding carbon dioxide removal (CDR) industry, and its stakeholders.
The Climeworks Direct Air Capture Summit is back!
Since 2020, the Direct Air Capture Summit has brought together key players of the direct air capture and carbon removal industries and has become a space that inspires, connects, and most importantly, empowers people to act. This 4th edition will be no exception.
This 2023 summit edition will focus on ‘Advancing high-quality carbon removal solutions’. Our full-day event will put the spotlight on the science and economics of carbon removal solutions like direct air capture technology, the roles of corporations and governments in the voluntary carbon market, the importance of environmental justice, as well as how to set the highest possible standards for the industry. We will dive into key notions such as storage permanence, community engagement, costs and energy requirements, among many others.
We have put together a line-up of some of the most inspiring and knowledgeable people in the direct air capture space, and more broadly in carbon dioxide removal and sustainability, for a combination of insightful and inspirational keynotes, panels and conversations.
We are thrilled to reveal the first list of the Direct Air Capture Summit 2023 speakers and moderators!
