Global CO2 Initiative

Our mission is to get CO2 capture and use recognised and implemented as a mainstream climate solution. This requires leading and accelerating the world in building a marketplace to capture and transform CO2  into commercially sustainable products that harness 4 gigatonnes per year.

As a global umbrella organisation, we convene and accelerate research, development and deployment by working with research organisations (academic, government, and commercial) and funding sources (angels, institutional, government, and commercial) throughout the world.

We lead other organisations worldwide by engaging all stakeholders in the ecosystem to:

- Develop the educational discipline of carbon capture and utilisation

- Create the global standard tools that accelerate a system-level process of technology assessment

- Accelerate the translation of research to development and market introduction and broad-scale deployment
