Every tonne (or Kg) matters

Carbon Removal Subscription

Whether you’re in the market for the latest tech gadget, a wardrobe makeover or booking a much-needed holiday, there is planet-heating carbon hidden in everything we buy, consume and do.

Did you know?

No one asked for carbon dioxide - and other planet-heating gases - to be in every part of (pretty much) every product across it's whole lifecycle from production, use to disposal - but there it definitely is! These small amounts all add up to contribute to all of our emissions each year.

This year we encourage everyone to be more intentional in the things they choose to purchase.

While it’s not our fault that there are embodied emissions in everything, we can do something about it.

Join us as we put our money towards high-quality, science-backed, carbon removal projects.

Balanced, ready-made, portfolio of carbon removal

Tools and resources to help you reduce your carbon

Aligning your values with science-backed action

Remove

Everything humans do contains planet heating CO2. A balanaced range of carbon removal takes care of your unavoidable emissions for hundreds to thousands of years.

Diversify

Invest in a balanced blend of high quality, ready-made carbon removal solutions across all pathways for a predictable and stable price per tonne.

Quality

Using our custom methodology we look for the best-in-class projects that focus on the permanence and additionality of their solution, while also balancing co-benefits.

Trust

We build trust and transparency by researching, managing and partnering with world leading carbon removal projects, and share what we learn with you. 

What can I do differently?

The science shows that deep decarbonization and emissions reduction is absolutely key to tackling climate change - it's 90% of the work we collectively need to do. At the same time we also need to scale-up permanent carbon removal to billions of tonnes per year by 2050. This is both for the remaining 10% emissions for net zero and also sequestering what's already been released.

Instead of buying stuff, remove carbon 

Actions - big and small - will make a difference, every day of the year. They add up and influence.

If you bought something, remove carbon

Our Portfolio Methodology

No single solution type or company will be at the scale we need by 2050. The problem calls for a portfolio approach. Our methodology involves researching, evaluating, comparing, tracking and supporting carbon removal solutions that have the potential to grow to millions of tonnes per year and beyond.

We take a permanence and additionality first approach from a pathway-by-pathway perspective, looking for the best in class for each solution type.

Permanence

Of paramount importance, how long does the solution lock planet-heating CO2 way for? The longer the better.

Additionality

How high a net negativity does a removal activity have and without it would the CO2 have contributed to heating?

Verifiability

Can we track and measure that the CO2 has actually been removed in a robust and scientifically defensible way? 

Accredited

Are the solutions seeking independent third-party audits of their activities and processes to ensure high quality removal?

Vintage

How soon will it happen and are the credits produced in a credible year for when the CO2 will be removed?

Co-benefits

Does it actively seek climate justice and non-CO2 co-benefits that contribute to planetary and human wellbeing?

What's best to do now, reduce or remove carbon?

Frequently Asked Questions

We love questions! We want you to feel 100% comfortable and excited about joining our Carbon Removal Portfolio-1.

What is Carbon Dioxide Removal?

Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) is anything that pulls planet-heating carbon dixoide out of the air and stores it safely for a period of time. The longer the better. 

It's a range of solutions that include various Nature-based, some tech-enabled or nature-inspired and fully engineered approaches and technologies. For example:

Forests and oceans are crucial natural carbon sinks which already draw down and lock away huge amounts of emissions. They'll be a part of the solution, but likely only about 20-30% of the removal we need.

On the more technological and engineered side, you might have heard about things like Direct Air Capture, Bio-oil, Biochar or Enhanced Weathering or Ocean Blue Carbon. These approaches, and others being worked on, are going to be need to fill the gap. 

Go deeper into the different types of carbon removal.

What is a Carbon Removal Portfolio?

Our CDR portfolio is a blend of different carbon removal solutions, mixed together to make it an affordable cost per tonne. Here's more info.

We believe this approach is ideal, based on the science-backed pathways to support growing the global carbon removal capacity to gigatonnes per year.

Combined with large scale global decarbonization, we need to reach about 10 billion tonnes of annual removal by 2050. There is no silver bullet solution and no one category or company will be big enough, which is why we take a portfolio approach to invest in a range of approaches.

How does carbon removal fit into Net Zero?

Following the science-backed approach to Net Zero we advocate for 90% emissions reductions and decarbonization from current levels (about 50 gigatonnes of CO2e per year). Then using high permanence removals for the 10% hard-to-reduce remaining emissions. 

Our angle on CDR is that even for that 10% it's a huge lift from where we are. Investing and growing the industry now is crucial.

If our goal is to build up the carbon removal industry to be the size we'll need by 2050 it needs to grow about 40%+ every year. It's not something that we can switch on overnight, it's something we'll have to build-up over time.

Is carbon removal like offsetting?

Not so much. Offsetting has been traditionally to be used to counterbalance the continued release of emissions, which only adds to the challenge of slowing and then reversing the increase in global average temperatures. 

The vast majority (cough - 95% - cough) of offsets available don't remove carbon. Some may be good projects and have other societal benefits that aren't primarily about removing the gigatonnes of harmful gases we humans have pumped out.  

Where carbon removal is different is that the only reason many of the technologies exist is to take out and sequester carbon dioxide - from the air or elsewhere - for hundreds to thousands of years, so it can't contribute to the continued heating of the planet and all the impacts of that.  

Carbon removal is what's called highly additional, meaning the primary reason it exists is to do exactly as its name suggests.

This said, carbon removal can be used to offset emissions, though this should be only as part of a concerted effort to reduce as large a chunk of emissions as possible. It can also be used to remove older emissions that happened in the past.

We think that now is the time to fund and invest in carbon removal. Even if it is still more expensive than traditional offsets and it's not always viable to buy the same tonnes, it works in the way we need by literally removing the carbon dioxide so it can't contribute to climate change.

Find out more about Avoidance Offsets and the Voluntary Carbon Market

Why should we buy carbon removal now?

There are a whole range of reasons. To us, some of the most compelling are:

- So the industry reaches about 10 billion tonnes of capacity by 2050 - the "net" bit of Net Zero

- The ratio of carbon removal in the Voluntary Carbon Markets needs to increase (compared to other approaches like avoidance or reduction)

- No one carbon removal type or company is going to be big enough on its own, we need a range of solutions and providers 

- When combined with reducing emissions from everything we do, carbon removal will be a key tool to slow and then reverse climate change

- Funding and investing in it now helps to reduce the cost per tonne it takes to remove the carbon. Decreasing the cost by increasing demand will support the growth in supply of high-quality carbon removal options and capacity volume.

More on why we should invest in carbon removal now.

How much does Zopeful charge?

As little as possible. We're aiming for over 85% to go directly to the carbon removal projects, after applicable taxes are paid (if any are due).

We'll retain up to 10% to invest in more things like this Black Friday campaign, and other hopeful climate projects and resources for individuals and companies.

The remaining 5% is payment provider and FX fees that we aren't able to reduce at the present time.
