2nd Annual Global Climate Restoration Forum – Session 4

February 26, 2021 , 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CST

Foundation for Climate Restoration: 2nd Annual Global Climate Restoration Forum

ENCORE: Originally aired on September 22, 2020

Friday, February 26 | 12:00 PM CST – 1:00 PM CST (1:00 PM CST – 2:00 PM CST)

Duration: 60 min

For over a century, we have released billions of tons of CO2 into our atmosphere. Restoring our climate means safely and permanently removing this excess CO2 to return us to pre-industrial levels.

We must undertake climate restoration in concert with mitigation and adaptation. While it is important to reduce emissions and adjust to life in a changing climate, this excess atmospheric CO2 is the main driver of climate change. Even when we achieve net zero emissions, our legacy emissions will linger and cause climate change to continue and accelerate. Only climate restoration will address the dangerous levels of CO2 already in our atmosphere.

Session 4: Climate Restoration Investment Opportunity
Session Description: At the 2020 World Economic Forum, the Thunderbird School of Global Management released a report projecting that, through carbon capture technologies, the world can realize at least $1trillion–$3trillion dollars in market opportunities and $3trillion–$5trillion dollars in broader economic, social, and environmental benefits by 2030. In this session, you will hear from leading impact investors, venture capitalists, and other innovators about carbon negative investments and related market opportunities.
