This science-policy brief presents the current key findings of NEGEM, iIt provides science-based facts to help answer questions such as:
- To what extent is Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) required to achieve climate neutrality?
- At what scale is it feasible to implement CDR methods, given their technical, environmental, economic and socio-political aspects?
- How to formulate policies and governance structures to optimize the deployment of CDR within the overall climate architecture?
It also provides key messages on the role of CDR for EU’s 2040 climate policy.
In June 2023 it was submitted to the European Commission, in response to the public consultation launched to start the process to establish a 2040 climate target for the EU, towards climate neutrality by 2050.
