Natural Climate Solutions

We are at a critical point for the future of the planet—we need to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by mid-century to keep global temperature increases under 2°C. While most efforts toward this goal have been focused on reducing fossil fuel use, new science shows that natural climate solutions—based on the conservation, restoration and management of forests, grasslands and wetlands—can deliver up to 37 percent of the emission reductions needed by 2030. Combined with the advancement of renewable energy and other technologies, natural climate solutions are essential to keeping the climate within safe boundaries. Find out more about the latest science.
