The 1500 Club is by and for investors, entrepreneurs, parents, children, and decision makers who are determined to reverse climate change by removing 1500 gigatons of CO2 and regenerating nature.
By joining us you immediately become climate positive. We offset your (average) emissions with a vengeance: we also actively remove CO2 and develop the business of removal to scale up as soon as possible.
How do we do this? By developing earthshots (bold business development up to proof of concept), policy tweaks, publicity, and investments in actual CO2 removal.
We have exponential impact because we enable the pioneers who develop scalable natural carbon removal methods. Examples? Think trees, seaweed, or olivine (green beaches of the world). You enable our Foundation’s team to be as independent and entrepeneurial as possible, as if our lives depend upon it.Join the club!

We need to clean up 1500 gigatons of CO2 to stop and reverse climate change. That is a lot, so we only choose methods that are physically and economically scalable. We develop ambitious earthshot projects that enable distributed scaling.
In our first year of existence we accompished among other things:
In working towards the removal of 1500 gigatons CO2, in the coming year we will develop two earthot projects (on seaweed and olivine) and one systemic intervention (accounting process for carbon removal). A brief outline:
mt = megaton or a million tons. GT = gigaton or 1000 megatons. A gigaton in weight can be pictured as an icecube measuring one by one by one km. Global yearly human CO2 emissions are about 40GT. Removing 1500GT while stopping emissions in 2050 will restore the natural carbon balance (see our Plan).
As a bonus, you receive the Climate Cleanup Pin that gains you access to all our events.
The cost of reversing climate change and being climate positive starts at €30 per month. Think: gym club, but for a healthy earth. Join now!
