Leading the Charge: Northpine Foundation backs Carbon Removal Canada mission to combat climate change

June 16, 2023

Northpine Foundation is pleased to announce our investment Carbon Removal Canada (CRC) to accelerate the growth of the carbon removal industry in Canada.

In the face of unprecedented climate change, and Canada’s quest to achieve net-zero by 2050, every effort to tap into the potential of carbon dioxide removal (CDR) should be at the forefront of the global challenge to mitigate climate risks.

Carbon Removal Canada, a project of the Clean Prosperity Foundation, is poised to lead the charge with intensive stakeholder engagement and dedicated advocacy efforts, to make Canada a leader in the CDR industry, providing climate solutions to the world and reaping the economic benefits that come with it.

The group has already secured significant support from organizations including the Trottier Family Foundation, Externalitator Foundation, Vancity Savings Credit Union, Clean Prosperity Foundation, and Consecon Foundation.

“Canada can be a global leader in achieving net-zero emissions by creating the policy environment needed to scale up carbon removal rapidly and responsibly, alongside the critical work of reducing existing emissions. The team at Carbon Removal Canada have a proven track record of success and a passion for long-term climate solutions using collaborative thinking and practical ideas,” said Namendra Anand, Impact Director – Climate & Nature at The Northpine Foundation. “We are excited to support creation of Carbon Removal Canada to leverage Canada’s natural strengths in building out a low-carbon economy that can address climate change.”

Northpine Foundation recognizes the urgent need for action on climate change and is excited to partner with Carbon Removal Canada to support innovative solutions to pressing climate issues.

“We’re grateful to have Northpine as a key partner in this venture. Namendra and the rest of the team at  Northpine are rightfully focused on scale and impact,” said Michael Bernstein, Chair of the Advisory Board at Carbon Removal Canada. “We look forward to achieving great things together.”
