Rebalancing the climate

Achieving 1.5 degrees means removing billion of tonnes of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
We’re here to help make that possible.

Net zero requires CO2 removal at a gigaton scale

Achieving Paris agreement temperature goals requires removing billions of tonnes of carbon from the atmosphere. This is because we will spend more than our remaining carbon budget – so we have to pay some back.

Negative emissions technologies hold the key

There are many Negative Emissions Technologies (NETs) that could harness and accelerate natural cycles to remove and reliably store carbon at the scale needed. None are close to the scale needed yet. Most are still at R&D stage and decades away from scale deployment if we don’t act to accelerate their development.


Technology by itself only gets us part of the way

A good idea and its supporting technology only get us part of the way. Wide scale commercial deployment and adoption in the real-world needs sustainable business models, supporting markets and regulatory frameworks, supply chains and infrastructure, broad community and environmental support, and a skilled workforce to implement and run it. With this multidisciplinary approach we can quickly drive a technology down the cost curve to achieve significant positive impact in the billion of tonnes of carbon removed.

It’s our mission to get solutions to scale in time

It took 70 years for solar PV to achieve the scale and competitive prices has today. The Climate Recovery Institute is focussed on accelerating the research, demonstration, development, and deployment of carbon removal solutions on the billion of tonnes scale. The foresight led innovation of our integrated research programs and our stage-gate assessments, quickly progress the readiness and deployment of negative emissions technologies.
