We are people reversing climate change. We restore carbon dioxide from oceans and the atmosphere. We double nature by fostering systemic conditions for the regenerative economy.
Climate Cleanup Foundation is an independent entrepreneurial non-profit funded by members.
Together we pioneer systemic interventions to enable carbon returning on land, in oceans,
rocks and constructions.

Planning for regeneration and natural carbon restoration at scale

We restore 1500 gigatons of CO2 by doubling nature
To contain the climate crisis we need to restore 1500 gigatons of CO2. This happens to be about what is already sucked up by all living plants and trees on earth today. So to restore 1500 gigatons, we need to double nature. We reverse climate change by developing Nature-based carbon dioxide restoration (which is how we define CDR) and we foster fundamental systemic conditions for entrepreneurial people, and all other life, to flourish in a regenerative society.
ONCRA is an Open Natural Carbon Removal Accounting framework, enabling removal and storage of carbon dioxide with nature-based solutions. Removal credits based on the ONCRA framework are for sale from removers and at onsets.org.
If doubling nature is the goal, Regeneration is the how. Regeneration is to put life at the center of every action and decision.
Construction Stored Carbon
ASN Bank and Climate Cleanup have created a financial metric for carbon storage in the built environment. The systemic goal is to enable investors to assess the amount of carbon projects store, so financials can account and invest towards 1500 gigaton of carbon dioxide returned from the atmosphere.
2040 – Join The Regeneration is the unique uplifting documentary film by Damon Gameau. The documentary featuring Paul Hawken (Project Drawdown) and Kate Raworth (Doughnut Economics) integrates the ideas in Drawdown and Doughnut Economics, and provides actual images of the future we create.
Fostering fundamental conditions
We foster the fundamental conditions for the regenerative new nature economy. Natural Climate Solutions can provide over 30% of the solution to reverse climate change, but receive not even 3% of funding. We are closing this gap by creating the conditions for entrepeneurial people and organisations to flourish.

What we do
We do. RD&D are much needed for natural carbon returning, because potential is huge and largely untapped. We develop in practice as well as in our Natural Climate Solutions Lab.
Ocean | Land | Rock
We foster the fundamental conditions for people to thrive in the new nature economy.
We show the world what we want. We envision how beautiful the world will be in a new nature economy. We’re always fact-based: we show what can be done. And then we do.

Join The 1500 Club
The 1500 Club supports our work. We are 1500 people taking responsibility for the removal the 1500 gigaton of extra CO2 in our atmosphere, using nature based solutions. The 1500 Club is by and for parents, entrepreneurs, investors, youth, decision makers and anyone else who wants to double nature and reverse climate change.
