Limiting global warming emissions to 1.5°C requires rapid and far-reaching action - and it is down to us. Recent scientific evidence suggests that in addition to emission reductions initiatives, we would also need to consider balancing remaining emissions by removing CO2 from the air.
Roughly 25% of global emissions are hard-to-abate and companies need offsetting to achieve their net-zero goals. But today 90% of carbon offsets on the market are tied to avoided emissions instead of carbon removal claims, which are instead better aligned to the +1.5 degrees Paris goal.
Abatable recommends companies the right offsetting portfolio bundle based on budget, impact, and location preferences, with a focus on carbon removal offsets.
We founded Abatable in July 2021 and we are backed by Global Founders Capital, Blue Bear Capital and Y Combinator (S21).
Our founding team has a strong founder-product fit to tackle this problem. Maria was previously VP at Goldman Sachs, where she advised large companies on forestry investments and carbon procurement, and Valerio was a Product Manager at Monzo, Google, and Facebook.
We're currently based in a private office within the WeWork at Aldwych House, which is very convenient to reach from most corners of London. Being part of WeWork means we get access to plenty of meeting rooms, flexible working spaces whenever you feel like a change, unlimited coffee and tea, and a dog-friendly environment.
If you don't see a role that suits you but you're still interested in working with us, drop us a line at [email protected]. We're always keen to hear from candidates passionate about solving climate change and we may have roles coming online in the future that could be a good fit for you.
