MfE carbon removals strategy underway

2023-09-25

Work is underway by the Ministry for the Environment to develop a carbon removals strategy. The strategy will guide decisions about how we, as a nation, build a more diverse portfolio of activities that remove carbon dioxide from the air and oceans.

It will look at the role of forestry, alongside a broad range of other nature-based and engineering technologies that can remove carbon from the air. These removals are likely to also contribute to biodiversity, climate change resilience and economic goals.

Public consultation on the draft strategy is planned for early 2024 as part of the Government’s second emissions reduction plan.
