C2GTalk: How can companies ensure carbon dioxide removal has a positive impact? with Amy Luers

Mar 13, 2023 53 min listen

New thinking is needed to ensure high-quality nature-based carbon dioxide removal (CDR) offers genuine and long-lasting benefits to the climate and biodiversity, says Amy Luers, global director for sustainability science at Microsoft Corporation during a C2GTalk.

Large-scale removal through CDR technologies lies further ahead, although most of the basic technologies already likely exist. While Luers is not in favor of pursuing solar radiation modification, she says "I am very much in favor of enhancing our understanding of the risks and opportunities it presents, the governance challenges, and how decisions are made around this."
