Respect – we believe that mutual respect and eye-level interaction are the base for all human interaction
Mankind´s carbon budget is evaporating. And fast. Keeping global warming within 1.5 degrees C is now an incredibly optimistic target and would require unprecedented action.
We need to restore the carbon in our atmosphere back to safe levels around 350ppm. We need negative emission technologies (NETs). Now.
Even keeping temperature increase within 2 degrees C – the internationally agreed maximum acceptable risk – will be a huge task. A task that will require everything we can do. Reducing emissions to zero is not enough. We will need to actively remove carbon from the atmosphere.
It is our vision that mankind needs to unite to face this challenge. For actively removing carbon from the atmosphere, we have to coordinate our efforts on a scale never seen before.
“All pathways that limit global warming to 1.5°C with limited or no overshoot project the use of carbon dioxide removal (CDR) on the order of 100–1000 GtCO2 over the 21st century.”
– IPCC (International Panel on Climate Change), 2018
We provide a space for people willing to bring about change in the field of reversing carbon emissions. We create opportunities to meet, exchange ideas and develop a new vision for an economy beyond fossil carbon. The way forward is all about working together.
We work to enable solutions to reduce carbon in the atmosphere. We provide insights on technologies, research and policy solutions furthering that goal. We approach and connect partners from industry, society and government – in Germany and internationally.
We need all the smart we have to tackle climate change. To stand a chance, we need all hands on deck, technical solutions in every industry, policies approaching the problem from every angle and a society that aspires to restore our atmosphere, instead of polluting it.
Reducing carbon levels in the atmosphere needs global innovations that work on a scale previously unimaginable.
This can only succeed based on a common value set. Here is ours.
We are working with partners, who share the same values and similar goals, trying to keep our CO2-footprint as small as possible.
