World-class support for world-changing projects

The world’s first integrated carbon solution

Climate Vault, founded at the University of Chicago, provides an integrated, market-based approach to reducing and removing carbon emissions for organizations and individuals alike.

By purchasing emissions allowances from government-regulated Carbon Compliance Markets, we guarantee our partners immediate and verifiable carbon reduction.

But as CDR developers know, carbon reduction isn’t enough: to counter climate change, we need ultimate long-term carbon removal. That’s why Climate Vault also provides grant funding to help scale new and innovative CDR technologies based on rigorous standards. In doing so, we provide our partners with automatic first-in-line access to cutting-edge CDR technology solutions and help to create and support an ecosystem for scaling CDR solutions.

Funding successful CDR projects provides Climate Vault’s partners with the credible carbon solutions they require–while also stimulating the growth of technologies essential to the future of our planet.
