Climeworks empowers people and companies to fight global warming by offering carbon dioxide removal as a service via direct air capture (DAC) technology.

Founded by engineers Christoph Gebald and Jan Wurzbacher in 2009, Climeworks is on a journey to climate impact at scale. To do so, it strives to inspire 1 billion people to act and remove CO2 from the air.

Climeworks is spear-heading the DAC industry globally, with the world’s largest DAC facility and storage installation in operation and a team of over 200 Climeworkers determined to contribute to a net-zero future.
