Yes, we can (remove CO2 from the air). Thanks to a new technology from Switzerland.
After US President Donald Trump, announced the USA’s withdrawal from the Paris climate accord, our hope to stop global warming lies in the hands of technology, businesses and individuals taking action. Politics has failed.
Just one day before Trump’s decision we witnessed the launch of the world’s first commercial plant for capturing CO2 directly out of the air, in Switzerland! The technology was created by a startup called Climeworks.
The new Climeworks plant is proof that caring individuals, technology and businesses can truly play a significant role in removing greenhouse gases already in the atmosphere (more here).
We at business campaigning Ltd., Switzerland’s leading campaigning agency with the mission to deliver “meaningful campaigns for meaningful for ideas”, decided to stand up and take action. So we launched this campaign.
Climeworks’ vision is to suck up 1 percent of the world’s CO2 production by 2025.
With 50’000 USD, Climeworks will able to suck 100 tons of CO2 from the atmosphere. This is the amount that we would like to contribute to their next CO2 capturing plant.
Let’s suck it up, bring together businesses and citizens of the world, buy 100 tons of CO2 from Climeworks, get rid of it and thus together do our bit for the Paris accord.
Be a part of it. Planet first!
