Listen in for a comprehensive assessment of the current state of the carbon removal market, and to hear goals and predictions for the future of the industry.

Then, the panelists answer an assortment of audience questions during the last 30 minutes of the event.
Background details from the Climate Week NYC event page:
"The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) 6th Assessment Report reiterated that any serious climate strategy must include a portfolio of aggressive emissions reductions paired with robust carbon removal. While policymakers consider pathways to advance carbon removal development and deployment at the massive scale needed by midcentury, private sector leaders are making their own climate commitments. Increasingly, corporate strategies have centered around carbon removal. These early adopters of carbon removal are critical to catalyzing the field and spurring a large-scale cleanup of legacy emissions. Moderated by Carbon180, this virtual Climate Week NYC conversation will include a range of perspectives on both the opportunities and challenges in buying and selling high quality carbon removal credits on our path to net zero."
