How to build a robust framework for the certification of high-quality carbon removals?

A visual guide by Clean Air Task Force, Bellona, and Carbon Gap

Next week, the European Parliament will vote on the Carbon Removal Certification Framework. We call on MEPs to support the ENVI Committee report, which paves the way for constructive trilogue negotiations.

We, alongside our colleagues at Clean Air Task Force Bellona, are thrilled to unveil a visual guide detailing the crucial steps towards achieving a robust and scientifically sound carbon dioxide removal (CDR) certification, with a particular focus on monitoring, reporting, verification and liability.

Indeed, an effective CDR certification is a pivotal move in seamlessly integrating carbon removal into EU climate policies. It signifies a giant leap towards fostering a potent carbon removal capability in Europe, positioning the EU as a frontrunner in this critical space.
