Scientific sources (IPCC Special Report, EASAC, NAS) state that we need to reduce our emissions as much as humanly possible in order to halt or reduce the current course of climate change. But we must also remove historic CO₂ from the air and offset unavoidable emissions.
Climeworks carbon dioxide removal via direct air capture technology is the only solution that can reduce atmospheric concentration of CO₂ in a scalable manner by capturing CO₂ from the air today and storing it permanently underground.
With our handy flight emissions tool, you can find the right amount of CO₂ to neutralize your journey. Check-in, remove, fly. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3.
You can also remove other unavoidable emissions from your daily lifestyle by subscribing to our carbon dioxide removal service and becoming a climate Pioneer. Simply choose a level of climate-positive action and at the end of each year we’ll confirm the amount of CO₂ removed in your name.
Climeworks develops, builds and operates direct air capture (DAC) machines which physically capture CO₂ from the air using direct air capture technology. One of two things happens to the Climeworks air-captured carbon dioxide: either it is returned to earth, stored safely and permanently away for millions of years, or it is upcycled into climate-friendly products such as carbon-neutral fuels and materials.
