Greenhouse gas removals targets not offsets

The case for greater control over carbon sequestration, and moving beyond net zero.
A panel discussion on greenhouse gas removals hosted by Green Alliance and the University of Lancaster.

 We will be hearing from Dr Nils Markusson, Professor Duncan McLaren and Professor Rebecca Willis as they present their pioneering research on the risk of greenhouse gas removal techniques deterring emissions reductions, and ways to use them safely to meet climate targets. After a short break, we will have a panel discussion on these topics.
Panel speakers include:

  • Dr Emily Cox, Research associate, Cardiff University
  • Melanie Coath, Senior climate change policy officer, RSPB
  • Richard King, Senior research fellow, Chatham House
  • ‚ÄčCharlene Cranny, Communications and Campaigns Director, UK Sustainable Investment and Finance Association

There will be opportunities for attendees to ask questions of both the University of Lancaster representatives and our panel. We expect this event to be of interest to academics, business, government and NGOs working on greenhouse gas removals, carbon offsetting and policy relating to net zero targets.
