CQuest is a brand new Berlin-based StartUp that tackles climate change through data-driven carbon sequestration (or as we like to spell it CQuestration). Our goal is to prevent global temperatures from rising by more than 1.5°C. To reach this we want to maximize the impact of nature-based climate solutions like soil organic carbon sequestration for negative GHG emissions. We contribute by leveraging satellite data, machine learning and cloud computing to derive how much CO2 can be sequestered in soils around the world. Such actionable insights allow projects for soil organic carbon sequestration to *take root* and to reduce the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere.
