To meet our climate goals, reducing CO2 emissions isn't enough.

We also need to clean up the CO2 that's already in the atmosphere. 


The need to reduce carbon in our atmosphere is the greatest challenge of our time, one of paramount scale and urgency. To date, our efforts to fight climate change have focused almost exclusively on one mitigation path: reducing future fossil fuel emissions. Do we need to expand our mitigation efforts to include ways to clean up past emissions as well? Yes. Explore our website to learn more why an increasing chorus of climate experts support the development of carbon removal solutions today.
