Copenhagen-based startup, Klimate, are passionate about helping companies achieve Net Zero through effective and ethical carbon removal technologies. Separate from carbon offsetting, which concentrates on compensating for emissions by making equivalent reductions, carbon removal is focused on lowering the overall concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere. Klimate source carbon removal technologies from all over the world, analysing both their social and environmental credentials before selecting which projects to endorse. Through Klimate, Explore will be supporting multiple carbon removal projects, from soil sequestration to more complex Direct Air Capture projects for a wide-ranging impact.
