Net zero by 2050 has become the catchphrase of the decade. But what do we really need to do to reach it?

International climate leaders agree that to keep the global temperature rise under 2 degrees Celsius, we need to actively remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere. While nature plays a major role in reducing carbon dioxide, this is not enough.

Find out how scaling technologies will be vital to stabilising our climate. Learn about direct air capture, which mechanically removes CO₂ from our atmosphere.
