How the UK might achieve net zero emissions

On 12 September the Royal Society and Royal Academy of Engineering published their joint report on Greenhouse Gas Removal in response to a request from the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).  The RS/RAE report’s Working Group was chaired by a GGR consortium leader, Gideon Henderson, and included four other GGR project leaders/researchers. Ten other GGR researchers are acknowledged as contributors, through their participation in expert  workshop sessions.  The publication of the RS/RAE report was politically timely, being a few weeks before the Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5⁰C  by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) – whose authorship also included a GGR researcher – and the associated policy discussions on how the target of ‘net zero emissions’ might best be achieved.
