Open consultation: Greenhouse gas removals: call for evidence

This call for evidence aims to strengthen the government’s evidence base on greenhouse gas removals (GGRs).

GGRs are likely to make a contribution to the UK’s net zero ambition, but many GGR methods are at an early stage of maturity and are not yet ready to be deployed at scale.

We invite evidence and views on:

  • the viability of different GGRs in the UK – including technology readiness, cost, deployment potential, lifecycle emissions, and wider constraints to deployment
  • the role of government in addressing market barriers and stimulating the development and deployment of GGRs
  • supporting policies needed to enable deployment and scale-up, such as a robust framework for monitoring, reporting and verification of negative emissions

This builds on the Vivid Economics study on greenhouse gas removal policy options, published by BEIS in 2019.

We welcome views and information from a wide range of stakeholders with an interest in GGRs, such as:

  • developers
  • researchers
  • investors
  • academics
  • social scientists
  • accreditation bodies
  • think tanks

The information we receive will help to inform the government’s future policy in this area.

Please do not send responses by post to the department at the moment as we may not be able to access them.
