Toward a carbon negative planet

The Stanford Carbon Removal Initiative (under development) seeks to create science-based opportunities and solutions for gigaton-scale negative emissions and atmospheric carbon removal.

Sally Benson speaking at Accelerating Climate Solutions event

The initiative will help to enable removal of atmospheric greenhouse gasses at scale by generating and integrating knowledge, creating scalable solutions, informing policies for technology deployment and governance, and demonstrating approaches and solutions with industry collaborators. All of this will be done with a focus on social acceptance and equity, as well as environmental, economic, and social costs.

In new areas of pursuit, the Stanford Carbon Removal Initiative will fund multi-year flagship projects with multiple subprojects under the leadership of Stanford faculty teams.
