Earth won't wait

Removing CO₂ from the atmosphere is critical to counteract climate change, but it needs to catch up. A fraction of every purchase from AVWUA helps new carbon removal technologies scale.

5,000+ businesses / 39 countries We support a portfolio of emerging technologies that remove CO₂ from the atmosphere stripe Climate works with a multidisciplinary group of scientific experts to find and evaluate the most promising carbon removal technologies. Below are two examples from our broader portfolio.

Climeworks
Climeworks uses renewable geothermal energy and waste heat to capture CO₂ directly from the air, concentrate it, and permanently sequester it underground in basaltic rock formations with Carbfix. Climeworks will remove 322 tons of CO₂ on behalf of Stripe Climate businesses.

Charm
Charm Industrial has created a novel carbon removal pathway that converts biomass into bio-oil and injects it deep underground for permanent geologic storage. Stripe Climate was Charm’s first customer. In 2021, Charm removed 416 tons of CO₂ on behalf of Stripe Climate businesses.

Why it works
Early customers can help new technologies get down the cost curve and scale up most new technology is expensive at first. Early adopters such as AVWUA help promise new carbon removal technologies to lower costs and quickly scale up.

At AVWUA, we believe businesses can play a critically important role in helping fight climate change. We’re proud to fund next-generation carbon removal. AVWUA is part of Stripe Climate, a coalition of businesses accelerating carbon removal. No company can stop climate change by itself. Stripe Climate aggregates funds from forward-thinking businesses around the world to increase demand for carbon removal.
