Virtual event: Accelerating the market for carbon removal

May 31, 2022; 7:00 PM-8:00 PM CET by Stripe & Climeworks

This April, Stripe launched the Frontier fund, a USD 925 million advanced market commitment (AMC) for carbon removal start-ups, with investments from Alphabet, Shopify, Meta Platforms and McKinsey & Co. Frontier will evaluate technologies based on factors such as permanence, land footprint, costs, capacity and justice, and enable start-ups to scale up their operations and reduce costs.

A few weeks ahead of Climeworks‘ Direct Air Capture Summit 2022, this is a „fireside chat“ with Stripe’s Head of Climate, Nan Ransohoff, who leads Frontier. Moderated by Julie Gosalvez, Chief Marketing Officer at Climeworks, the event will dive into Frontier’s novel AMC approach and how it will help to scale up – and stimulate supply of – permanent carbon removal technologies.

Workshop: Marine Carbon Dioxide Removal: Essential Science and Problem Solving for Measurement, Reporting, and Verification

September 26-30, 2022 (The University of Rhode Island)

The central goal of this workshop is to build the OCB (Ocean Carbon & Biogeochemistry) community’s capacity to conduct research to support the Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV) of marine CDR by identifying priorities, pathways and best practices in this relatively new area. This in-person workshop is designed for those with background knowledge in marine CDR already so the participants can collectively grapple with the science needed to measure and verify CDR in marine environments.
