We’re all trying to halve emissions by 2030 but while some are focused on avoiding new emissions, others are investing heavily in removing what’s going up.
“We must focus on conserving the forests we have which are irreplaceable carbon sinks.”
“There will always be emissions so we must invest in technology to remove them at scale.”
“Conserving forests is a zero-sum game, it doesn’t actually make a difference.”
“Technology is too new and too expensive to deliver at the speed and scale required.”
Please join Climate Impact Partners and Marsh McLennan for a debate between experts on the pros and cons of each and how to allocate budget and resource for the greatest value and impact. With plenty of time for questions and discussion, can we identify the optimal approach to reaching our global climate goals?
