Climeworks’ carbon dioxide removal solution supports sustainable travellers

Tomorrow’s Air, a traveller collective, launches with a mission to clean and preserve air for future generations, using an unconventional mix of inspiration and education, including an online Airbnb tour of a Climeworks plant.

Through Tomorrow’s Air’s partnership with Climeworks, travellers can remove carbon dioxide through Climeworks’ direct air capture and permanently store it with the click of a button. Tomorrow’s Air amplifies the power of this action with art and educational campaigns to engage millions of travellers worldwide. Tomorrow’s Air subscribers receive travel benefits from a selection of sustainable travel partners curated by the Tomorrow’s Air team, a monthly certificate verifying their contribution to carbon dioxide removal, and tools to increase awareness about the need for carbon dioxide removal on their own platforms.

Incubated by the Adventure Travel Trade Association and launching in collaboration with direct air capture partner Climeworks, Tomorrow’s Air combines the wisdom and connections the ATTA has established over nearly 20 years of supporting sustainable travel businesses and their entrepreneurial leaders with Climeworks’ pioneering carbon dioxide removal solution.

Travel industry can boost climate solutions like direct air capture

Tomorrow’s Air will leverage the power of travel and travellers to clean up carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, in the process mobilizing a global community to raise awareness and build support for the sector’s further expansion.

Tomorrow’s Air carbon dioxide removal partner Climeworks was recently recognized by the World Economic Forum as a Technology Pioneer and raised $75M in funding to further scale up its direct air capture solution. Climeworks already had the potential of travellers to support the scale up of direct air capture technology on its radar when approached by the Tomorrow’s Air team in 2019.
