Land Use for Net Zero

Around 30% of the Earth’s surface is land. The way we use and interact with land will have an impact on climate change. Land and soil can contribute towards climate change mitigation for example, by removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and providing locations for clean energy production.

The evidence and guidance provided in this Land Use for Net Zero series will help us to understand where we should focus our efforts and the trade-offs involved in each of them, to support our collective aims to achieve net zero.
