New briefing report offers a vision of a net-zero emissions world

Matthias Honegger, Axel Michaelowa and Matthias Poralla discuss the role of Carbon Dioxide Removal in the Paris Agreement.

While seemingly far-off, the need to achieve a balance of emissions and removals has sharpened focus on the necessity for drastic emissions reductions as well as advancing carbon dioxide removals. Policy planning processes increasingly ought to anticipate a path toward reaching net-zero emissions and the Perspectives team is working on several fronts to support such processes with policy proposals and research. This briefing report seeks to outline the broad strokes of issues surrounding carbon dioxide removal (or negative emissions) for negotiators and national decision makers tasked with preparing LEDS, revising NDCs or advancing related policies as well as for observers and potentially concerned industries.
