Zero Emissions Day 2021

Let's give the planet a day off by removing carbon dioxide from the air, permanently. Using our new tool, you can calculate the average daily carbon footprint of an individual in your country and choose to go net-zero for the day. This year, don’t just reduce your carbon footprint, remove it.

Why do we need Zero Emissions Day?

Zero Emissions Day was established on 21st September in Nova Scotia, Canada in 2008 with the idea to give the world a break from fossil fuels and to raise awareness about the harm caused by carbon emissions.

Multiple sources (IPCC Special Report, EASAC, NAS) say 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 they state that we must also remove historic CO₂ from the air in order to achieve net-zero. Join our movement and make the small changes which contribute to making the world a better place.

Here's our tips on how to help planet Earth this Zero Emissions Day:

Reduce

Reduce

Go car-free for the day and walk or cycle rather wherever possible.

Reuse

Reuse

Try avoiding single-use plastic and paper products and repair existing items.

Recycle

Recycle

You can recycle almost all products - collect your waste and take a trip to the recycling center.

Remove

Remove

Using our carbon footprint tool, you can calculate your daily emissions and remove them from the air.

Calculate your carbon footprint

Your daily carbon footprint is partly determined by your location and is dependent on your lifestyle. Check out the daily footprint of an average person in your country and simply order the amount of CO₂ you want to remove.

Where do you live?

What about the other emissions?

Zero Emissions Day is a great start, but why stop at one day? 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 the level of CO₂ removal on a monthly basis and at the end of each year we’ll confirm the amount of CO₂ removed in your name. Join our journey to a climate-positive world by taking climate-positive action.

How does it work?

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.
