Today is World Environment Day and we should focus on reimagining, recreating and restoring Earth’s climate. Climate change is our time’s biggest environmental emergency. Could part of the solution be vacuuming carbon dioxide (CO2) out of the air? One company – started by university friends who saw glaciers recede before their eyes – is doing just that.

Operating some 14 plants worldwide, Climeworks are combatting the climate crisis with giant vacuum cleaner-like units that capture CO2. They offer CO2 removal as a service, helping people and companies ‘sequester,’ or store, their emissions in products like stone and even carbonated drinks. In the video, the Climeworks team share their passion and plans to transform the future of the planet.
