Carbon Removal Technology: A Must-Have for the Climate

Hosted by Environmental Defense Fund, The Aspen Institute, and the Canadian Consulate in New York

The climate crisis is escalating and a new wave of environmental innovations are fighting to keep pace.

Our panel will feature leading policy experts, entrepreneurs and researchers on the front lines of this emerging field.
