Carbon removal expert Climeworks has signed a new agreement with outdoor clothing brand Mammut.
The agreement will see the Swiss company removing 200 tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere on behalf of Mammut over the course of the multi-year period of contract.
Using its sophisticated direct air capture (DAC) technology located in Iceland, Climeworks will remove the CO2 directly from air and will permanently store it away deep underground with the help of technology known as mineralization.
This partnership makes Mammut among the first companies in the outdoor sector to purchase carbon dioxide removals (CDR).
And it is also aligned with the company’s strategy “Do our best, remove the rest”, which includes a strong focus on quantifiable CDR and tangible, forward-thinking climate action.
The agreement between Climeworks and Mammut enters into force this year and will help the Swiss clothing brand fully decarbonize its products in the coming years.
