As a social enterprise, trust and transparency are at the core of our business. When you choose to buy with us, you are choosing to make a difference in the world. We understand that carbon removal is an intangible service and that it is important for our customers to trust us. That is why we strive to be as transparent as possible in all aspects of our business.

The cost of CDR and the fees

Like all businesses, Carbon Removed needs some way to fund itself. Unlike the majority of businesses however, we make our fees fully open when you are purchasing our product. Our pricing strategy is simple, 15% of the value shown on the website with a minimum of $5. Let's look at an example:

If you were build a removal portfolio that totals $100, you would see that $15 of that is reserved for Carbon Removed and processing fees. Upon checkout, local taxes will be applied. For our example, we will take country where taxes are 20% so total checkout price will become $120.

$120 - $20 taxes - $15 fees = $85 going to carbon removal projects that you choose.

Example distribution of funds when purchasing negative emissions with Carbon Removed. *taxes will vary depending on location, this example represents a country with 20% taxes.

What do you use the money for?

Other than payment processing, our share is used to cover our running costs such as hosting, licenses, administration, webpage maintenance and customer support, product improvement, any other occurring fees and spreading the word to educate more people about negative emissions.

Carbon Removal Methods

Currently, we remove carbon dioxide through different methods such as planting trees, direct air capture and storage (DACS), bio-oil injection, kelp sinking and olivine sand distribution. You can freely choose the representation of each approach and also the total amount of carbon you want to remove with are CDR calculator.

Different carbon removal projects come with different costs and benefits, such as the permanence of removal, the sequestration period and wider social impacts. As a relatively new field, not all the carbon removal methods are fully developed and new techniques and projects are frequently introduced.

We are constantly looking for new carbon removal methods to integrate and enlarge our portfolio.

Transparency and Proof

We publish all of the invoices and confirmations we receive from our removal partners so you can be completely aware of what we have achieved so far. Our company is open and transparent. We maintain a public ledger of all our tree planting and CO₂ removal. These numbers come with proof-of-purchase that is independently verifiable with our respective partners.

Future Savings

Our primary goal is to capture as much CO₂ as possible, supporting many different carbon removal methods along the way. Prices vary and change over time, as we grow, we are able to buy from all of our methods in greater quantities and (hopefully) at cheaper prices. We make sure these savings are passed on to you by reviewing the prices of products and services every 6 months, increasing removal amounts accordingly.


At our company, we are committed to being open and transparent in all aspects of our business. We understand the importance of trust in our customers and strive to provide all the information needed to make informed decisions. We are constantly working to improve our methods and pass on any savings to our customers. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.
