Panel discussion from the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment.

While every effort needs to be made to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in all sectors, it is clear that a net-zero target will require some greenhouse gas removal, also referred to as ‘negative emissions’.

Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment and London School of Economics gather a panel of experts to discuss the questions and controversies surrounding negative emissions technologies.

Join the panel to find out more on issues such as R&D, regulatory support, public perception, governance, liability and domestic viability. Panellists include:
