The Coalition for Negative Emissions Webinar
July 1, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm BSTFree
The Coalition for Negative Emissions aims to build momentum, shape policy, and develop the market for negative emissions globally. We are made up of a diverse range of companies across industries, from landowners and environmental stewards, large users and generators of energy, to technology start-ups and large manufacturers. We work across differing sectors of global economies, but we share a common vision: to develop and deploy negative emissions at a scale that will create genuine impact across the world.
To reach Paris Agreement goals, sectors such as aviation, heavy engineering and agriculture must decarbonise by 2050. But technical and commercial barriers mean it will be impossible for these industries to entirely reduce their carbon and other greenhouse gas emissions in time. Instead, we must also look to ways we can actively remove them.
Negative emissions are a proven, scalable set of solutions that offer the opportunity to remove greenhouse gas emissions from the atmosphere, slow the effects of climate change and enable industries to continue to thrive. By taking action to deploy negative emissions today we can advance the world towards an environmentally prosperous, economically progressive, net zero future.
This webinar will discuss the findings of the Coalition for Negative Emissions’ landmark report ‘the case for negative emissions’, including speakers from the Coalition membership and McKinsey Sustainability, who acted as knowledge partners for the report.
