Carbon removals will play an increasingly important role in reaching climate neutrality by 2050.
Greater transparency through the implementation of an EU-wide carbon removals certification framework will help to build trust and credibility in carbon removals and seek to generate new investment incentives.
The Commission is expected to present a set of comprehensive rules on an EU-wide certification scheme for carbon removals by the end of November.
Which carbon removals hold the greatest promise for the EU and how to ensure they do not distract from direct decarbonisation efforts?

Shell’s target is to become a net-zero emissions energy business by 2050, including so-called scope 3 emissions, associated with our customers’ use of the energy products we supply. In October 2021, we set a target to reduce absolute emissions by 50% by 2030, compared to 2016 levels. This covers all emissions in Scope 1, which come directly from our operations, and in Scope 2, from the energy we buy to run our operations.
