Where the Money Goes

Your Questions Answered

Recently one of our followers asked, “How does Tomorrow’s Air and Climeworks use the money we contribute?”

When you pay Tomorrow’s Air to have to carbon dioxide removed in your name, the money is used to:

  • Build and install carbon dioxide removal plants at @climeworks_official sequestration sites
  • Operate the carbon dioxide capture plants and hand over the carbon dioxide to our storage and monitoring partners (in Iceland this is @carbfix ), who proceed with underground storage of the carbon dioxide
  • Support creative inspiration and education to help mainstream carbon removal understanding and encourage broader participation through free events such as our recent Tomorrow’s Air Convene event (which drew in close to 1000 registrants!), online virtual tours of the direct air capture plant in Hinwil, Switzerland, social media marketing, the Airrows on Air podcast, and more.

For individual travelers, the amount of money allocated to support the activities of carbon removal and storage and education changes depending on the membership level:

  • At the $75 per month membership level, $50 per month is dedicated to the activities of carbon removal and storage; $20 to creative inspiration and education
  • At the $28 per month membership level, $24 per month is dedicated to the activities of carbon removal and storage; $4 to creative inspiration and education
  • At the $10 per month membership level $8 per month is dedicated to the activities of carbon removal and storage; $4 to creative inspiration and education

Company and destination partners allocate money between education and carbon removal and storage by agreement.

Uniting and empowering travelers.
