Although the world is struck by a global pandemic, the urgency of the climate crisis does not subside. Investment in the large-scale deployment of climate solutions provides the opportunity to stimulate economies and build a more resilient world – meaning every dollar invested works harder, bringing additional benefit.

Private investors have again confirmed their trust in Climeworks' technology as a solution to help stop global warming and invested a further CHF 73 million (USD 75 million) in equity – the largest private investment ever made into direct air capture. This brings the total sum invested in Climeworks since it was founded in 2009, to over CHF 120 million.
