The projects we support utilize the latest carbon absorption technologies to permanently remove CO2 from our atmosphere. With your help, they're working to reverse climate change and ensure our current climate crisis doesn't get any worse.
Historical emissions via Global Carbon Project,1 "Current path" shows SSP4-6.0,2,3 removal pathways adapted from CICERO.4. To simplify things, this chart only shows CO₂, although the scenarios also account for other greenhouse gas emissions too (all of which will need to be reduced).
In order to achieve our 1.5°C climate goal, scientists believe we need to remove 10 billion gigatonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere each year. Carbon management programs like reforestation play an important role in carbon offsetting, but they aren't enough. We need to reduce the amount of carbon we release into the atmosphere, and drastically increase the amount we are removing.
We’ve identified the top carbon removal projects that are helping us stay within the 1.5°C pathway. To ensure the quality of our vetting process, we benchmark these projects using the latest verification standards from the American Carbon Registry, Gold Standard, and Climate Action Reserve.

Kelp removes CO2 from the ocean as it grows (20x faster than trees!). They are building the most efficient carbon removal system in the world by scaling this natural process. This offers permanent, scalable carbon removal at low cost and without high land use.

Carbo Culture converts walnut shells and other agricultural and forestry waste into functional biocarbons that stay unchanged for over a thousand years. One ton of Carbo Culture biochar sequesters over 3.12 tons of CO2.

Charm Industrial has created a novel process for preparing and injecting bio-oil into geologic storage. Bio-oil is produced from biomass and maintains much of the carbon that was captured naturally by the plants. By injecting it into secure geologic storage, they’re making the carbon storage permanent.

CarbonCure's carbon dioxide removal (CDR) technology offers permanent, verifiable, and scalable carbon reductions for the concrete industry. The retrofit technology is installed in hundreds of concrete plants globally, with plans to expand.
Climeworks is a Swiss company specializing in carbon dioxide air capture technology. The company filters the CO₂ directly from the ambient air through an adsorption-desorption process.
ECOERA is a Swedish biochar innovation company that created the worlds first Biochar-only carbon sinks. ECOERA provides a full platform for biochar production using biochar made from pelletized agro-residue blends with full traceability from the source to the resulting biochar and location.
greenSand removes CO2 from the atmosphere by harnessing the natural weathering process. Olivine is ground up and used on pathways, parking lots, and on railway lines. There, through reactions with rain and the ambient air, bicarbonate solutions are formed that lead to the safe and permanent storage of CO2 in limestone on the seafloor.
Phnom Penh, Cambodia
HUSK is the leading producer of carbon based fertilizers and natural pesticides for smallholders. They transform agricultural waste products into highly effective inputs, helping to boost soil fertility, increase revenues for smallholders and sequester carbon.

NCX connects buyers to high-quality forest carbon credits at scale through its Natural Capital Exchange. By combining satellite imagery, machine learning and field measurements, NCX measures every acre of U.S. forest every year to bring unprecedented transparency and accountability to forest carbon credits.
