Scientists at the Earth and Environmental Sciences Area  are leading the way on investigating engineered and nature-based solutions to achieve a carbon-negative future.

Meeting future climate goals requires removing and sequestering existing atmospheric carbon, and scaling up technologies that prevent new carbon emissions from entering the atmosphere. Our holistic approach considers carbon management from many angles, including managing land and forest use, capturing point-of-source emissions, and storing carbon underground.
