Our deadline is tight, we must remove vast amounts of CO2 from the atmosphere to avert the worst consequences to the climate. So, we must act fast and scale the carbon removal industry in the 2020’s. In our last meeting, we focused on the shift from support by pioneer carbon removal buyers, such as Microsoft and Shopify, to investors allocating capital toward removal suppliers.
This time we focused on the race to scale carbon removal supply in all sectors, how big and small companies are transforming their businesses to remove carbon and how Puro.earth is enabling the scale up. Watch the Recording and get the slides here!
We started off with a keynote conversation on the significance to the voluntary carbon markets of Nasdaq investing in CO2 Removal Standard and Marketplace Puro.earth.
Then we heard from SUEZ Group, and how they are in the process of renewing their business model to include carbon removal solutions -a great example of how a company can scale removal supply in very big volumes.
We presented what are the benefits for a carbon removal supplier to be issued CO2 Removal Certificates (CORCs) and monetize their climate service through Puro.earth and gave a sneak peek of our upcoming platform that matches future supply of CORCs with demand!
The event closed with a stellar panel with Fortum Oslo Varme CCS project, Soilfood, and Foundation for Climate Restoration on how the waste management, agriculture and construction sectors are being transformed to remove carbon from the atmosphere.
