CarbonCure Partners with Pledge to Bring its CO₂ Removal Technologies to a Wider Business Audience
London, 11 August 2022 — CarbonCure Technologies, a climate tech company specialising in carbon removal technologies in the global concrete industry, has partnered with Pledge, an integrated carbon measurement and offsetting platform - to bring its solutions to a wider business audience.
CarbonCure is on a mission to annually reduce and remove 500 million metric tons of carbon emissions by 2030. CarbonCure’s suite of technologies immediately mineralise captured CO₂ upon injection into fresh concrete during manufacturing. Even if CarbonCure concrete is later demolished, the mineralised CO₂ will never return to the atmosphere.
CarbonCure Chair and CEO Robert Niven said, “We are proud to provide high-quality carbon removal credits that are measurable, verifiable, scaling and available right now. Carbon markets are a catalysing force for innovation and scaling solutions. As we deploy our technologies globally and work to exponentially increase our carbon storage operations, we’re taking this moment to applaud Pledge’s commitment to removing CO₂ and ensuring a sustainable, liveable climate.”
CarbonCure's methodology for calculating its carbon credits was approved in 2021 by Verra, the world’s most widely used voluntary greenhouse gas crediting program. CarbonCure measures and tracks the CO₂ from point of capture through to mineralization, allowing carbon credit buyers to trace the precise deployment date and location of the CO₂ they paid to remove.
“In July, we surpassed 650 CarbonCure systems sold and 2.8 million truckloads of sustainable, carbonated concrete delivered to construction sites around the world, and have reduced and removed more than 185,000 metric tons of CO2,” Niven said. “CarbonCure has grown from a single-product company into a vertically-integrated carbon removal solution across the global concrete industry — shrinking the carbon footprint of one of the world’s most difficult-to-decarbonise sectors.”
David de Picciotto, Pledge’s Co-founder and CEO says: “It's great to be working with CarbonCure, a project partner that has created a solution to decarbonise a traditionally heavy emitting industry. Working with CarbonCure has proven that new technology that can scale rapidly is a key solution to accelerating the transition to net zero, something which is what we’re dedicated to achieving at Pledge."
