High climate ambition, carbon capture & carbon removal
Over the past year, countries, states, and other actors seeking to achieve ambitious climate targets have recognized need to include carbon capture and carbon removal as part of the toolkit to reach their climate goals. The urgent need to advance carbon capture and carbon removal to meet ambitious climate targets was highlighted in the April 2023 International Energy Agency (IEA) special report, Credible Pathways to 1.5C, Four Pillars for Action in the 2020s. The IEA’s report concluded that even with aggressive deployment of other important decarbonization tools like wind and solar to reduce and remove CO2 emissions. This need has become clear at the national and subnational level as climate ambitious countries as diverse as California, Denmark, the United Kingdom, and Brazil have put together plans to meet their climate targets. This panel discussion will feature government leaders and other stakeholders discussing how carbon capture policies in their jurisdictions have been used to achieve greater climate action.
