A 1.5-degree pathway will remain out of reach without carbon management
As set out in The Paris Agreement, our goal is to limit global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. Every year, the world adds 51 billion tons of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere. At current trends, we will witness catastrophic effects of climate change that have compounding impacts on further climate change.
We must act now. It’s estimated that we need to remove 5 gigatonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere by 2050 to hit our net zero targets, and carbon removal technologies will be important for our future.
