Grow green to go green. Irish greentech startup’s vision for the widespread use of hemp to transform society for the better, create a sustainable future for all

DUBLIN, IRELAND, March 16, 2023 / — Tao Climate, a disruptive technology company dedicated to combating climate change, is proud to announce a groundbreaking new initiative that has the potential to close the UN Emissions Gap and deliver a utopia for everyone on Earth.

The company is working with Google to deliver its revolutionary plan, which involves the use of industrial hemp to capture a staggering 23 gigatons of atmospheric CO2 every year. This captured carbon will then be used to build sustainable housing and infrastructure for people all over the world, ushering in a new era of sustainable development and environmental stewardship.

“We are thrilled to unveil our plan to use industrial hemp to capture carbon and build a better world for everyone,” said Tao Climate CEO, Gary Byrnes. “The technology we’ve developed is truly revolutionary, and we believe it has the potential to make a massive impact in the fight against climate change.”

According to the company’s projections, the use of industrial hemp could potentially capture over 1 trillion tons of CO2 over the course of the next several decades. This would have a significant impact on the environment, closing the UN Emissions Gap and helping to prevent the worst effects of climate change.

In addition to its environmental benefits, Tao Climate’s plan also has significant economic implications. The use of captured carbon to build sustainable infrastructure and housing has the potential to create millions of new jobs and drive sustainable economic growth in developing countries around the world.

“At Tao Climate, we believe that sustainability and economic growth go hand in hand,” said Tao Climate COO, Felix Roick. “By using industrial hemp to capture carbon and build sustainable infrastructure, we can create a better world for everyone – both environmentally and economically. We need to grow green to go green, and we have the mechanism that enables that.”

Tao Climate’s groundbreaking plan has already generated significant interest and support from policymakers, environmental groups, and investors. The company is currently in talks with several major governments and corporations about implementing its technology on a large scale.

“We are excited to partner with governments, corporations and intergovernmental agencies around the world to implement our technology and deliver a better future for everyone,” said Gary Byrnes. “We believe that our plan has the potential to transform the world and make a lasting impact on the fight against climate change. A true utopia is within reach, it just takes the will and determination of us all to achieve it. Our technology will make it easier.”
