Carbon sinks in Europe: stakeholders taking action to bring out the next solutions for carbon neutrality



Carbon sinks are indispensable to reaching the European Union's net zero emissions target by 2050. Based on the recent Ancre Alliance's carbon sinks position paper, and with the support of EERA, this seminar aims to share knowledge on natural and technological carbon sink solutions and identify priority actions at the European level.


The discussions will be organised in three roundtables:

  • Roundtable 1 : How to preserve carbon sinks in natural areas?
  • Roundtable 2 : How to harness the potential of biomass-based solutions for carbon removal?
  • Roundtable 3 : How to enhance carbon capture actions, industrial processes, geological storage and long-term storage
  • Conclusion : How to bring the workforce up to speed for the transition to a low-carbon economy? Recommendations / Action for research and new competences.

The event will count on participants from the European Commission, European Parliament, EERA and ANCRE representatives, European research and technology organisations, professional and non-governmental associations, and experts members.
