Climeworks announced the third edition of its annual Direct Air Capture Summit featuring industry experts collaborating and discussing high-quality carbon removal solutions. This year the event will take place on June 30th, 2022 from 1:30 PM – 5:45 PM CET and will be a hybrid event in Zurich and online. Participants can register here.
The third edition of the summit will highlight the roles that the public and private sectors play in driving climate solutions and meeting global net-zero goals. It will examine why direct air capture technology should scale starting now.
The event will include points from pioneering corporate players, thought leaders and politicians, about the role in decarbonization that direct air capture can play in the future. It features multi-dimensional opinions from the tech, business, and policy space.
There will be engaging panel discussions and presentations that will aim to inspire and bring forward determination towards climate action. The event will also offer time for networking with presenters and opinion leaders.
“IPCC has made it clear that carbon removal needs to scale to gigaton scale ASAP, and this industry-building journey will require all actors to come together. Fostering this strong collaboration is the foundation of the Direct Air Capture Summit that we will host on June 30th,” said Christoph Gebald, co-CEO & co-Founder of Climeworks.
Last year, the Direct Air Capture Summit hosted by Climeworks was a two-day event that featured a top line-up of speakers, including renowned climate scientists, carbon removal project developers, and pioneering companies taking part in the carbon removal market.
One of the key takeaways was that the private sector is playing the key role in driving forward climate solutions. Stacy Kauk, the Director of the Sustainability Fund at Shopify also stated that if companies are not participating and learning now about decarbonization and the carbon removal market, they will miss out in the future.
The Direct Air Capture Summit will aim to address the huge challenge lying in front of society – how to reduce already mounting emissions. Direct air capture is a technology that is promising in its potential to do that but still faces scalability issues due to its high costs – a problem that the industry is determined to solve.
