European Carbon Removal Policy: What lies ahead?

Until now, there was no comprehensive picture of the regulatory framework around Europe’s emerging carbon management system, but this is changing.

Carbon removal is increasingly included explicitly or implicitly in EU legislative files, programmatic work, and policy discussions. Until now, there was no comprehensive picture of the regulatory framework around Europe’s emerging carbon management system, but this is changing. What lies ahead for European carbon removal policy?

On 25 April, Carbon Gap will be launching a CDR Policy Tracker, an online tool that will give a digest of all EU legislative files – adopted, under discussion, or foreshadowed through official Communications from the EU Institutions.

The presentation of the Tracker will be followed by a panel discussion about the future direction of CDR policy in the EU, policy gaps, and opportunities for policy leadership to further accelerate and increase the EU’s commitment to supporting the carbon removal field.
