Working towards a more resilient, equitable, and prosperous world for everyone.

Our Vision

Earth is a precious heirloom, passed down from one generation to the next.

A precious object passed down from generation to generation.

We are living in a climate emergency with bigger, hotter, fires, faster, more frequent floods, and longer, more relentless hurricane seasons.

This crisis already impacts the world’s most vulnerable in the worst ways. We founded Heirloom because we believe that everyone on this planet deserves the opportunity to thrive, and climate equity is a huge part of making that happen.

We are optimistic that we as humans will find a way to bend the temperature curve downwards. We will transition away from fossil fuels to a sustainable, low-carbon economy. We will change the way we eat, live, and build, learning to protect our planet along the way. And while we do that, we will also remove the trillion tons of greenhouse gases that sit so heavily in our atmosphere by deploying carbon dioxide removal at massive scales.

As employees, citizens, companies, governments, and people of Earth, we need to take radical action. We must act now, and we must act together. At Heirloom, we are on a mission to pull billions of tons of CO2 from the atmosphere. We need the best people in the world to help make it happen.
