A digital plant solution has been developed to help Climeworks more efficiently remove carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere.

Part of a multi-service collaboration between Accenture and Climeworks, the digital solution spans strategy, design, digital engineering, technology and cloud.

A direct air capture (DAC) expert, Climeworks offers CO2 removal as a service to companies and individuals. Its newest plant in Iceland, called “Orca,” will capture 4,000 tonnes of CO2 annually.

“Our vision is to inspire one billion people to remove CO2 from the air,” said Daniel Egger, Chief Commercial Officer at Climeworks. “To bring it to life, we keep strengthening our offering for consumers and corporate clients – and Accenture has been playing a key role.”

Stéphane Piqué, who leads Accenture’s work for Climeworks and Accenture Industry X in Switzerland, added, “We began collaborating with Climeworks because we believe in their mission. It quickly became clear that Accenture could provide value in key areas of this exceptional company.”

“The work we’ve done is a testament to making sustainability our greatest responsibility, and helping clients infuse it across their businesses. We’re looking forward to continuing to contribute to Climeworks’ success – for the next generation and ourselves.”
