What is Net-Zero?

Net-zero is where greenhouse gases going into the atmosphere are balanced by greenhouse gas removal out of the atmosphere, creating carbon neutrality and stopping global warming. Net-zero does not mean stopping all emissions of greenhouse gases, but that the net effect of reduced emissions and increased removals through carbon sinking, gets us to the place where global warming stops. Net-zero is the internationally agreed target to mitigate global warming after 2050, in line with IPCC stated objective to stay within the 1.5-degree temperature rise needed to prevent catastrophic effects of global warming.
