Creating a commercial market for greenhouse gas removal 
11:30-12:30, Wednesday 11 December, UK Pavilion, IFEMA Feria de Madrid 
Greenhouse Gas Removal (GGR) technologies, such as Afforestation and Direct Air Capture, are likely to play a critical role in achieving net-zero emissions.  The scaling of these technologies in line with climate model requirements has the potential to be a multi-trillion pound industry. This Grantham Institute event explores how to create a commercial market for GGR. 

How can considering co-benefits of climate action allow us to go further & faster cutting emissions? 
11:30-12:30, Thurday 12 December, UK Pavilion, IFEMA Feria de Madrid
Action on climate change has multiple benefits, including improvements in public health, growth in the low-carbon jobs market and a reduction in poverty and inequality. This Grantham Institute event explores these co-benefits, how their incorporation into the decision-making process can accelerate emission reductions, and how cities and devolved regions are best-placed to capitalise on these benefits.
