The Race to Decarbonize Has Begun
With more countries passing legislation pushing for decarbonization, the race to decarbonize has begun.
The growing threat of climate change has put immense pressure on companies worldwide to reduce their carbon footprint. The race to decarbonize, aided by key pieces of legislation such as the UN Paris Agreement, the European Green Deal or the Net Zero Emissions Bill in the UK, has spurred the development of an array of companies specializing in carbon measurement and decarbonization services. These companies have become crucial in helping businesses and industries track and reduce their carbon emissions.
In this article, we will provide an overview of the main companies operating per continent in the decarbonization market and the services they offer.

One of the leading companies in the North American market is CarbonCure Technologies. The company has developed a technology that injects carbon dioxide into concrete during the production process, reducing the carbon footprint of the building material.
