The IPCC concluded that billions of tonnes of CO₂ a year need to be captured and buried for us to achieve our climate goals. BACKSPACE only uses high impact, certified carbon removal technologies that literally remove CO₂ emissions from the air, backed by people like Stripe, Shopify, Microsoft and more. We do not use cheap (and inneffective) carbon credits or offsets.
