The Supercritical mission

The climate crisis is the single-biggest threat to humanity. Supercritical's mission is to help businesses get to net zero and to scale carbon removal technologies. We're building software to enable companies to understand their climate impact and purchase high quality carbon removal offsets.

Join us to help carbon removal technologies to scale so that the planet is ready for net zero by 2050. Come and help us save the planet!

Why is carbon removal critical?

Carbon removal includes nature-based solutions like trees and cutting-edge technologies that literally pull carbon from the sky and store it underground for millennia. We need to scale to remove 8 billion tons a year by 2050 to stay below 1.5℃ of warming. This is over 10,000x the rate we are removing carbon at today. This will be an $80 billion industry by 2050.

Our values:

  • We care about spending time with our families and prioritise our time accordingly.
  • We actively work on diversity and are incredibly proud that half our investors are women.
  • We value humility and self-awareness. We can't learn if we're not constantly seeking to improve.
  • We're kind to each other. Life's too short to feel shitty about yourself because someone else is being unkind.
  • We broach difficult conversations early. We can do this because we trust each other.
  • We know the best way to build a company is to test assumptions as quickly as possible. That means we push ourselves to move faster than we feel comfortable doing.
  • We are always challenging ourselves to prioritise so that we make the biggest impact.
