When we talk about fighting climate change a lot of emphasis is put on lowering emissions and rightly so - this is of course critical. But the fact remains, without simultaneously removing the dangerously high levels of carbon that already exist in our atmosphere, we won’t reach the targets necessary to mitigate the effects of climate change.
This is where Carbon180 comes in. They’re a new breed of NGO working together with policymakers, scientists, farmers and businesses to initiate ambitious carbon removal projects. By exploring innovative carbon removal technologies, by fostering a new generation of ‘entrepreneurs’ in the sector through their fellowship scheme, and by working closely with farmers to increase our soil’s natural carbon capturing potential, they are striding towards a carbon-negative planet.
Why we think they’re great
We love that Carbon180 are completely rethinking carbon by exploring the economic opportunity of carbon tech. Yes, too much carbon is a bad thing. But can waste-carbon be used for good? The organisation is currently looking at how waste CO2 can be used to make building materials in an environmentally beneficial way and that’s pretty exciting.
