“It's surely our responsibility to do everything within our power to create a planet that provides a home not just for us, but for all life on Earth.”

4 reasons why climate supporters like you take action with Climeworks

1

Trees alone are not enough

We love trees and we need many more of them, but as leading scientists say: in order to achieve our 1.5°C goal we also need technology solutions to remove CO₂ (Source: IPCC).

2

The CO₂ is permanently removed from the air

And put back underground where it can no longer contribute to climate change.

3

You can see your impact every month

Plus you get a confirmation at the end of the year showing how much CO₂ we'll remove in your name.

4

You're helping to stop global warming

Your contributions help us scale our plants so we can stop global warming and reach net zero emissions before it’s too late.

How your contribution reverses decades of climate-changing carbon emissions

We remove CO₂ using a technology called “direct air capture.” It captures CO₂ from the air, and when combined with geological storage, puts it deep underground where it can no longer contribute to climate change.

Climeworks runs the largest direct air capture plant in the world, and the only one that's operational.

Watch the video below to learn more about how it works.

Many of the world’s top businesses use Climeworks to reach or even go  beyond net-zero emissions

We help leading companies reach their sustainability goals by removing past and present CO₂ emissions from the air. Many companies go beyond net-zero and use Climeworks to become climate positive. Join them today and help us achieve climate goals before it's too late.

Why direct air capture?

Because other actions aren't enough on their own.

Climate action is experiencing a paradigm shift. The UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change recently reported that reducing emissions alone won't stop climate change.

The only way we can keep global warming below 1.5 °C, they said, is to actively remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

Direct air capture is the most efficient and most effective way to remove carbon from the air. And Climeworks runs the largest direct air capture plant in the world, and the only one in operation.

Reducing emissions is crucial, but it's not enough.

Why don’t we just plant more trees?

First of all, planting and protecting trees is absolutely essential in fighting climate change. Unfortunately, we have gotten to a point where trees alone are not enough anymore. There is too much CO₂ in the atmosphere. That is why we need more trees and technologies like direct air capture.

Here some more background:

  • Human impact on climate have led to droughts, wildfires and deforestation that have affected the reliability and durability of the storage in trees and forests
  • A tree stores CO₂ over its lifetime (about 100 years on average). When it dies, its CO₂ is slowly and progressively released into the atmosphere as the tree decays
  • We need afforestation, but it cannot be scale to the required levels as it requires much more water and surface area than can be provided

Frequently asked questions

How does the subscription work?

  • Choose your amount of CO₂: you can either choose a preset amount of CO₂ that you would like us to remove in your name or tell us your own custom amount.
  • 'Monthly' or 'Annual Plan': you can decide whether you would like to pay on a monthly or annual basis.
  • Cancel any time: there are no strings attached. You can cancel your subscription any time.

Do I get some sort of certificate?

  • Yes, you do! In your account, you will find your CO₂ removal order confirmation as a PDF document. Here we state the amount of carbon dioxide that has been ordered in your name. No one else can put a claim to that amount.

Can I deduct the subscription from Tax?

  • Generally speaking: no. The purchase of Climeworks carbon dioxide removal services is not deductible from tax as a donation because Climeworks provides a service to its customers in return for a payment and is not a charitable organization.
