About us

What is Rethinking Removals?

Rethinking Removals is a collaborative programme that acts as an integrator, accelerator and initiator to ensure that high-quality carbon removals reach the scale required to have impact by 2030.

We aim to:

  • Identify what needs to be implemented or unblocked to accelerate progress. 
  • Reframe the way carbon removals are seen, by creating space for difficult conversations around the often toxic issues that are holding back progress.
  • Find the high leverage pressure points where intervention has maximum impact.
  • Work with many different partners to make change happen on the ground.

The programme is led by Valence Solutions, in partnership with Carbon Gap, Climate Action Platform – Africa, Cur8 and OpenAir  and supported by many others.

We want to amplify the efforts of the amazing people working to make carbon removals a reality. Get in touch – we love to talk!
