Harnessing nature to
fix the climate crisis and
restore the oceans
For All of Us
Seafields is developing sustainable open-ocean aquafarms irrigated with proprietary upwelling pipes, sequestering carbon naturally and storing it in safe and permanent depots in the deep ocean.
Sargassum is not going anywhere – so we utilise it in the fight to fix the climate and heal the oceans.
Seafields was introduced to the world at COP26 and since then have built a ocean and carbon science focused team.
With experts in sub sea cable recycling, green fundraising and investment practices, marine environment, carbon cycling and farming we are building a team that doesn’t just care – but has the tools to make a difference.
Reducing our carbon output is only fixing one part of a global problem.
The only way to not only reach net zero but regenerate our life giving eco systems is to remove – or sequester – some of the 50 gigatonnes of CO2 we emit each year. A sinking ship isn’t saved solely by plugging the leaks. If no one gets in there with a bucket the whole thing is going down.
Can you picture a ton of CO2?
A gigaton? A gigaton is a billion tons, an unimaginable burden for our atmosphere, our health and our planet.
It feels abstract, a gas, so lets quantify . One tonne of CO2 is the approximate amount released on a return flight from London to New York. In the US there are 276 million cars, releasing 1.27 gigatons a year. Every human being standing on a scale weights less than a quarter of that. To sequester the 50GtCO2 a year that experts estimate would make a real impact on the environment requires collaboration at a scale humanity has never seen before.
We don’t have competition, we have allies to our cause.
Carbon sequestration isn’t new. Tree planting projects and other terrestrial activities require geopolitical will that doesn’t exist, and space that people need to live and survive on.
To fix the problem at the scale needed we would need to plant 1.2 trillion trees. The space, will and effectiveness of this make it only one angle from which to tackle the problem.
Is terrestrial carbon sequestering really nature’s best solution?
We need to plant 1.2 trillion trees to solve the problem terrestrially. The geopolitical challenge of this makes it practically unachievable, plus trees take time to grow and remove carbon from the atmosphere.
