Businesses with climate targets

Is your company at the forefront of climate action? Or should be? Then let's join forces to remove CO2 together – today.

We’re in the race to net zero. And we need to speed up the pace. For our stakeholders, for our business, for our families, and for all generations on our planet.

Many businesses are already taking drastic emission reduction measures. But we need to do even more.

The IPCC calls to accelerate carbon removal technologies, as reducing emissions will not suffice to reach net zero.

To fulfil their own climate strategies, companies need to counterbalance emissions that are hard to abate. That’s where carbon dioxide removal (CDR) comes in.

Complement your company’s drastic emissions reductions with neustark's carbon removal service.

Businesses are the front-runners in the world's race 

towards net zero. Let’s lead the way, together.

Why carbon removal?

Counteract hard to abate emissions

As much as you reduce your emissions on all scopes, you will always face some that are quasi unavoidable.

Be a pioneer

With a common regulatory framework currently lacking, businesses have the power to scale up the CDR industry. And to be a pioneer in doing so.

Bring your climate strategy to life

The Science-Based Target Initiative (SBTi) calls for corporate net zero strategies to combine reducing emissions and removing unavoided emissions.

Meet your stakeholders' needs

By taking action now, you can meet the needs of your employees... your investors... your clients. And address increasing regulatory asks.

Inspire others

Those acting now also have the power to inspire other businesses and policymakers to take much-needed climate action.

Why work with neustark?

Permanent solution

The mineralization process that is the core of neustark’s technology is the most permanent form of CO₂ storage today. The CO₂ is removed for thousands to millions of years, and the risk of reversal is negligeable.

Measurable

We measure and validate what emissions we source, transport, store and sell as CDR. And we communicate our impact transparently, from the number of tons we remove to the detailed methodology behind our calculations.

Verified

Our impact is verified by the CDR industry‘s most trusted certification body, Gold Standard. Neustark was the first technology-based CDR provider to achieve Gold Standard certification.

Local

Our storage sites are in Switzerland, Germany, Holland, Austria and very soon other European countries. You – and your stakeholders – can see the impact you’re making in front of your door.

Who we work with

In 2022, Microsoft purchased neustark carbon removal alongside a number of other emerging technologies as part of its commitment to become carbon negative by 2030.

«​​As one of the first companies to source carbon removal, Microsoft is committed to solutions with maximum integrity and durability. Solutions like those from neustark can provide these attributes today, not years from now.»

UBS and neustark entered a long-term collaboration in 2022. Over the course of the following 13 years, neustark will remove 29,500 tons of CO₂ from the atmosphere for UBS. 

This further underlined the bank’s commitment to achieving net-zero energy-emissions by 2050 across their entire operations. As well as their commitment to foster the scale-up of innovative carbon removal technologies.

Verdane became the first private equity firm to commit to neutralize all future residual emissions with engineered, permanent carbon removals. In 2022, Verdane entered a 10-year contract with neustark and peers.

«We were convinced by neustark’s transparency, the permanence of its solution, and [...] that the company can offer an already up and running solution. We hope that our commitment inspires the finance sector to follow suite.»

FAQs

  • If your business has set SBTi targets, you will need to make the transition to carbon removal credits by 2030.

    By starting the process now, you can secure your business’ ability to meet your sustainability targets while leading the way for everyone else.

    Even if your company hasn’t set SBTi targets, the interest from consumers and investors in sustainability will only continue to grow – as will potentially compliance requirements. Carbon removal credits are a tool for decarbonization that can pair with other carbon reduction efforts.

    It’s important to reduce what you can and source high quality carbon credits to reach your climate goals.

  • There are a plethora of carbon removal technologies currently being developed or deployed in practice. Methods ranging from direct air capture (DAC) and bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) to afforestation and biochar all have unique characteristics in terms of cost, technology maturity, permanence and risk of reversal.

    It’s important to have a 360-degree approach when setting your climate strategy and risks should always be investigated and addressed through a thorough due diligence process.

    You should be mindful about methods that have a higher risk of reversal, less transparent measurement methods, or little proof of concept.

  • The Science-Based Targets Initiative (SBTi), among others, explicitly encourages companies to not only reduce their own footprint but also invest in activities outside of their value chain in the transformation to net zero because of the urgent need to move the dial on climate change mitigation, today.

    Carbon credits are a transparent, measurable and results-based way for companies to do so.

    A quality carbon credit means one ton of carbon dioxide has been reduced or removed from the atmosphere. It also means that this reduction or removal has been certified under an internationally recognized carbon standard – such as Gold Standard.

    There’s an increasing call for companies to – next to their own vigorous reduction efforts – invest in carbon removal credits to cover their unavoided emissions.

    Complement your company’s drastic emissions reductions with neustark’s carbon dioxide removal (CDR) service.

  • While all types of carbon credits are important tools in helping to achieve a net zero future, the technical differences between carbon removal credits and other carbon credits are important to note.

    Carbon avoidance projects contribute to climate action by preventing carbon that would have been released into the atmosphere. This could be building a wind farm to lower reliance on fossil fuels or preventing deforestation.

    In buying carbon offsets, a company invests in reducing their emissions via an external project.

    Carbon removal projects, as the name suggests, remove carbon from the atmosphere – thus creating negative emissions. Broadly speaking, they are split into 2 categories: natural carbon removals, like tree planting which sequesters carbon as the trees grow, and technological carbon removals, for example, point source CO2 capture and storage via mineralization, like neustark does.

    In investing in carbon removal credits, a company counterbalances their hard to abate emissions – in additional to own drastic emission reductions.

  • There are a number of reasons prices of carbon credits vary, for instance:

    • the quality of carbon removal a company offers, including factors such as permanence, measurability and rapid delivery;
    • varying implementation costs depending on the size and location of a project;
    • similarly some types of technology are more expensive than others, though prices will be driven down by scaling up in the next years;
    • carbon pricing regulations can affect prices in the voluntary carbon markets too;
    • finally, prices are driven to a large extent by supply and demand.
