We transform Field Service Management into a CO2 negative process

Deeply rooted in our long-standing sustainability record, our commitment in leading a CO2 negative future is integral to our mission.

CO2 compensation with each intervention

Research for a better future

We heavily invest in research with a strong focus on upscale technologies with a drastic impact on CO2 reduction. While there are only a few researched and valid methods to impact CO2 negativity we want to be on the front lines and support leading scientist and projects.

The Olivine project

The focus of our scientific work lies in the method to enhance the natural weathering process of the widely available mineral olivine.

In the presence of water and CO2, olivine breaks down and transforms carbon dioxide into stable building blocks for limestone rocks. This process is fundamental in the earth's natural ability to cycle CO2 between land, oceans and the atmosphere in order to keep our climate stable. To tackle the large volumes of human CO2 emissions, however, this slow natural weathering process needs to be sped up.

We are actively running a project to scale up the natural weathering process of olivine to be applied for significant CO2 reduction. In cooperation with “Carbon Drawdown Initiative Carbdown GmbH” we investigate how enhanced weathering of olivine can remove CO2 from the air in agricultural settings across Europe.

With our investment in this project we are working towards capturing CO2 from the atmosphere by measurements of tons, rather than kilograms.

Direct air capture project

Direct Air Capture (also called carbon capture storage) is an exclusive 3.5 year technology cooperation project between RMIT University in Melbourne and Fieldcode that aims to develop a technology that reverses the burning of fossil resources from the past. CO2 from the air is converted back into coal, which can be safely returned to the ground. This would close the natural cycle without causing additional emissions.

Our goal is to enable the scaling of the output from current grams to tons – so we achieve a drastic result faster and can contribute to a healthier environment faster.

Acting today for a better future!
Our forestation project in Zimbabwe

We know that we will get to our mission’s goal soon.
But our planet needs our support now!

Forests are a natural carbon sink that absorbs CO2 from the air through photosynthesis and helps to mitigate the human made greenhouse gas emissions. The captured CO2 depends on the mass growth of the plant. Our calculation is based on a 10% mass growth per year and results of 1,835 kg captured CO2 for each kilo of gained biomass. Internal analysis came to the result that one field service intervention on average emits 12kg CO2, including onsite activity and administrative effort.

Forests are also habitats for many species and are the home of 80% of terrestrial biodiversity. The FAOs states that 75% of the world’s freshwater comes from forested watersheds. We make use of these benefits, by planting trees in order to compensate our customers' emitted CO2 and to strengthen poverty-stricken communities in developing countries.

We started our first own tree planting farm - on 800 km²!

It is located at RIFA in the lower Zambesi Valley in Zimbabwe. With our own local teams, we also involve the communities to create a local workforce. This enables them to improve their living conditions and at the same time it ensures the sustainability of our projects. 

We focus on new technologies and new science, but until our other projects are fully developed our forests grow tree by tree –with our local communities, our team’s voice, and our know-how.
