Despite decades of emissions reductions pledges, countries’ carbon emissions continue to rise, and with them global temperatures. The last eight years were the world’s hottest-ever, and without rapid action the goal of limiting overall global warming to 1.5° C may soon be out of reach. As the private sector, federal regulators, and climate activists alike search for more tools to keep carbon out of the atmosphere, active carbon management approaches like carbon capture, utilization, and storage – once seen as too costly, too risky, or both – are gaining renewed attention. Join us for a conversation about these fast-developing technologies and the ways the private sector and federal policy are shaping the landscape for their deployment.
