The role of Natural Climate Solutions (NCS) in reaching Net Zero

Technical paper


06 November, 2022



This is the first associated technical paper for the report “The role of Nature-based Solutions in strategies for Net Zero, Nature Positive and addressing Inequality”. 

Its objective is to break down how NCS can contribute to different aspects of a company’s journey to Net Zero, from actions within land sector value chains (including insetting) to high-ambition Beyond Value Chain Mitigation and carbon removals for “neutralizing” residual emissions near or at the Net Zero target year. Importantly, using high-quality NCS approaches will contribute to nature-positive and addressing inequality, delivering “core” benefits alongside climate mitigation.
