This study comprises an analysis of relevant legislation, combined with a series of interviews conducted in the community of Selby (a proposed location for BECCS development), to investigate procedural justice in the context of carbon removal.
This publication includes a model UK law to provide for infrastructure scale investment in tree planting as a way to capture and store carbon in order to transition the UK to net zero emissions and mitigate climate change.
This report focuses on the policies to reduce land-based emissions of greenhouse gases such that around one-fifth of agricultural land in the UK is released by 2050 for actions that reduce emissions and sequester carbon.
Policy framework for deep emissions reductions and carbon removals in agriculture and land use in the UK
This report's objective is to identify policy options to drive emissions reductions and carbon removal within existing agricultural systems and through changes in land use.
This paper examines some of the major risks, applicable safeguards, and potential pathways for agriculture and land use in realizing net zero emissions targets.
Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS): Finding the win–wins for energy, negative emissions and ecosystem services—size matters
This paper identifies how smaller scale BECCS can be deployed to generate net welfare gains in the UK, and that landscape-scale and site-specific impacts need to be central to future BECCS policy developments.
Bioenergy with carbon capture and storage, and direct air carbon capture and storage: Examining the evidence on deployment potential and costs in the UK
This paper explores the deployment potential and costs of both BECCS and DACCS in the UK, and how these might compare with other regions.
This report outlines the NFU's approach to achieving a climate neutral goal for farming, and the specific policies, mechanisms and support required from government in order to help farmers achieve a net-zero target.
