Going Carbon Negative: The Risks and Opportunities of Carbon Offsets

September 30, 2022 | Research Report

Meeting net-zero targets will require CO₂ removal. Enabling this goal, a wide range of technologies, spanning carbon capture, utilization, and sequestration; land-based solutions; and ocean-based CO₂ removal, will help corporations offset their emissions through carbon credits. A successful net-zero strategy will likely require a combination of these technologies. The Lux Carbon-Negative Framework helps clients align carbon credits to their decarbonization strategy — whether for near-term carbon offsets or long-term sourcing of fossil-free carbon feedstocks. This report delves deeper into the available technologies that can generate carbon credits and addresses the opportunities, risks, and associated economics.
