Our approach

The science-led, tech-enabled carbon removal approach for forward-thinking companies.

Carbon removal is the biggest real-world industry to emerge in the 21st century. We are guided by science and leverage tech to enable growth and solve physical problems at scale.

Proprietary knowledge

Led by science.

The science is clear: carbon removal is essential to mitigate climate change. Since our inception, we’ve aligned with the leading scientific voices in the field, established industry best practices, and always invested in removals only.

Our proprietary knowledge of the latest science, policy, and standards enables you to navigate this ever-evolving industry confidently.

Evaluation Framework

Our industry-leading due diligence framework ensures enables you to stay ahead of the curve and align with science.

Climate impact

Klimate evaluates the permanence, rapidity and additionality of carbon removal projects to determine the impact they have on climate change.

Additionality

A carbon removal project is deemed additional if it creates an impact that would not have otherwise occurred in the absence of the project implementation. Additionality ensures that CDR takes place on top of emissions reductions, so that current emission scenarios cannot continue.

Effectiveness

This category looks into the project’s operational emissions and the intensity ratio of resources (such as energy, land, and water) needed by the carbon removal project as life cycle analyses. This ratio should be as low as possible.

Permanence

Carbon removal projects combat climate change by removing atmospheric CO₂ , storing it in reservoirs, and preventing it from being re-emitted. The more permanent a removal is, the longer it keeps carbon locked away in reservoirs.

Timeliness

Different methods sequester carbon over a range of timescales. Rapidity measures how long it takes for carbon to be stored, an important understanding as climate change causes a magnified warming effect over time.

Co-benefits

Beyond carbon removal, we evaluate the social and environmental benefits that carbon removal projects generate like native biodiversity or soil health.

Environment

There are many synergies between projects and many aspects of the environment, such as, biodiversity, ecosystem habitat, resource quality, and climate resilience. But, there also must be strong protections against environmental harms.

Social

These positive impacts beyond carbon can include jobs, increased welfare, or capacity building. However, there are social harms such as displacement that must safeguarded against.

SDGs

Acknowledging that climate change needs to be addressed beyond carbon removal, the projects are assessed by its contribution and synergies towards the Sustainable Development goals.

Integrity

Klimate analyses the accounting, certification standards, and verification procedures of carbon removal projects to ensure sound and credible projects.

Certification and Quality Assurance

Different national and international standards exist across methodologies beyond our own and those conducted internally by projects. These bodies have well-defined processes which verify and audit projects for its traceability, methodologies, and compliance. Thus, adding another important layer of checks and balances.

Monitoring, Reporting, and Verification

This is the continual measurement of progress towards the project’s benefits. This includes the carbon being removed, associated co-benefits, and the project’s impact on the environment. It ensures the quality of integrity associated with the impact of investment.

Scope and Implementation

We analyse the potential benefits and risks of the carbon removal projects and technologies to future-proof your investments.

Project Capacity and Maturity

Critical to our common climate goals is scaling carbon removal. Thus, it is important to analyse the scale and scope, as well as a project’s ability and limits to growth.

Risk / Mitigation

Knowing the project’s risks and its associated mitigation measures that could affect its operations is vital to ensuring the safety and reliability of the carbon storage.

Governance

Ensuring best practice across the carbon removal market is essential to reaching our future climate goals. We analyse these governance structures, such as procedures, policies, and local community engagement.

Oxford Principles for Net Zero Aligned Offsetting

Reduce all possible emissions and remove the rest
We need to transition from avoided emissions to carbon removal. As much as economically feasible, companies should transition to long-term removal solutions.

Support the development of net zero aligned offsetting
When procuring offsets, companies should aim to help support the development of new, scalable technologies.

OUR APPROACH

Enabled by tech.

Achieving net-zero requires scaling to gigatonne capacity across multiple methods and locations. This is no easy task.

Kick-starting this growth on pace requires trustworthy infrastructure, reliable supply and demand forecasting, and financing of promising technologies.

That’s why we’ve developed the most advanced platform for corporates to manage their carbon removal assets.

Prepare for market dynamics.

As the world gears up for net zero, companies need high quality credits in line with upcoming regulation. Secure access to the credits you need, when you need them, and maintain professional credibility when demand is scarce.

Transparent data infrastructure for visible impact.

Klimate’s public ledger is singular in the industry. Since our inception, we’ve prioritised transparency to create a high quality and integrity market.  

Connecting the market for future needs.

Scaling the carbon removal industry requires strategic financing. Developing a gigaton market relies on getting the right support to the most important solutions, connecting dedicated buyers and climate-ambitious companies with projects making a real impact all over the world.
