Today we're announcing an expanded partnership with Lowercarbon Capital, a leading investor in groundbreaking climate technologies.

Following Lowercarbon Capital's participation in our Series B funding round in 2022, they are becoming a Watershed customer with a purchase of 1000 tonnes of high-quality carbon dioxide removal (CDR) from the Watershed Marketplace.

Lowercarbon Capital funds research and invests in technologies that reduce CO2 in the atmosphere. Their purchase from the Watershed Marketplace engages a diverse range of leading CDR suppliers, including some via Watershed’s partnership with Frontier. The purchases made include:

The suppliers are also part of Lowercarbon Capital’s pioneering portfolio and reflect their overall philosophy of investing in high-potential, high-impact technologies that will lead the climate economy.

“The world needs climate technology leaders with ambition that matches the scale of this challenge. The team at Lowercarbon Capital embodies that ethos; they share our vision of a thriving decarbonized economy that runs on revolutionary climate solutions,” said Taylor Francis, co-founder of Watershed. “We’re thrilled to expand our relationship with Lowercarbon Capital to accelerate the growth of carbon removal solutions, bringing this critical technology to companies across sectors and around the world.”

“For every corporate net zero press release, there is an exec having night sweats about how to strip fossil fuels out of their operations and supply chain. Watershed is here to help that person sleep easy,” said Chris Sacca, Managing Partner at Lowercarbon Capital.

Lowercarbon Capital joins Watershed’s roster of investors, including Sequoia Capital and Kleiner Perkins, and advisors, including Mark Carney, Christiana Figueres, and Al Gore.
