through big solutions - large scale impact
One of the most cost-effective ways of reversing CO2 emissions is restoring Earth’s tropical rainforests. Cool Earth’s model relies on remote sensing technology and strong relationships with local indigenous communities to target rainforest that are at risk of deforestation and destruction within 18 months. ClimateForce is proud to partner with Cool Earth to scale this proven model beyond the existing operations that include Papua New Guinea, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the Peruvian Amazon.
One Tree Planted is a non-profit environmental charity delivering on a mission of global reforestation. They have an international presence with forests planted in North America, Latin America, Africa, and Asia. They are dedicated to making it easier for individuals and businesses to give back to the environment, fight climate change, protect biodiversity and help reforestation efforts around the world. All by planting trees! In 2018, they planted 1.3 million trees, their highest so far.
Miro is a sustainable forestry venture which grows commercial quality wood products for both local and export markets. Classic reforestation can be very tricky in rural Africa because of illegal wood harvesting and live stock grazing. Miro addresses this problem by providing both jobs and safeguards to ensure each tree grows its full cycle. The business model works to restore land that has been degraded by poor agricultural practices. In addition, they provide services to forest owners, rubber farms (harvesting and clearing overmatured areas), and environmental services to mining groups (including rehabilitation planting) in West Africa.
OSMOSUN is the world’s first reverse osmosis desalination solution using only solar energy. These module systems are powered off microgrids and will be a key resource to combat water scarcity in developing countries, especially rural island and coastal communities. The OSMOSUN® units adapt to the water needs of the most remote water stressed settings, to desalinate sea water to produce 1 m3 to 10 000 m3 per day of freshwater.
Coral Vita works to restore our world’s dying and damaged reefs. By growing diverse and resilient corals and transplanting them into threatened reefs, we help preserve the ocean’s biodiversity while protecting the health and prosperity of communities, nations, and industries, and nations that depend on reefs for coastal protection, food, and income. Coral Vita envisions creating a global network of land-based coral farms
The Blue Carbon Lab (BCL) offers innovative research solutions for helping to mitigate climate change and improve natural capital, while also contributing to jobs, economic growth, capacity building and community wellbeing. They offer in-house expertise on ecology, biogeochemistry, microbiology, environmental economics, and modeling. They are also involved in joint projects in genomics and mapping/remote sensing.
Our technology bolts onto any source of CO2 emissions, and with only water and electricity as inputs, transforms that CO2 into some of the world’s most critical chemical products. We can reduce the carbon footprint of the world’s heaviest emitters, while creating a new revenue stream from what is discarded today as a waste product.
Climeworks captures CO2 from air with the world’s first commercial carbon removal technology. Our direct air capture plants remove CO2 from the atmosphere to help drive us towards a negative emissions future. Using heat and water to filter, each module captures 50 tonnes of CO2 from the air every year. This technology will be a key stepping stone towards us
Zero Mass is perfecting your water SOURCE and is completely off-grid and self-contained; creating drinking water from just sunlight and air. Using advanced water capture technology, a standard SOURCE array replaces up to a twenty-pack of bottled water on a sunny day.
*One tree that grows for 40 years sequesters 1 ton of c02.
