Net Zero Emissions

Net zero emissions describes the general objective to combat climate change. Net zero in this context does not only mean the necessary and drastic reduction of emissions, which are especially caused by the combustion of fossil fuels. The remaining emissions that cannot (yet) be avoided are also removed from the atmosphere in the scenario. This is what differentiates net zero emissions / carbon neutrality from being carbon-free.
