About Us

The Foundation for Climate Restoration (F4CR) is building a movement to reduce the CO2 in our atmosphere to pre-industrial levels. These efforts—known as Climate Restoration—are necessary to ensure a habitable planet for future generations. F4CR is the first foundation dedicated solely to restoring the climate by 2050.

F4CR works with entrepreneurs, investors, companies, scientists, faith leaders, governments, NGOs, and citizens globally to advance the use of natural and technological solutions for carbon removal. The Foundation serves as a neutral, trusted intermediary building the ecosystem needed to achieve preindustrial levels of CO2 and will work in partnership with all stakeholders committed to restoring the climate.

Together, we can change the trajectory of climate change. 


Climate restoration is the safe and permanent removal of the trillion tons of excess CO2 that has accumulated in our atmosphere since the Industrial Revolution. We must do two things at the same time to reverse the catastrophic damage of climate change:

  • Reduce the amount of CO2 we put into the atmosphere each year to zero, known as “net zero” emissions; and
  • Remove the excess CO2 that has accumulated in the atmosphere since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, known as “net negative”. This is what we call Climate Restoration.
