UK Land Use for Net Zero Research

The UK Government has committed to the ambitious task of achieving ‘net zero’ greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. However, some emissions from farming, aviation and other activities are very difficult to eliminate. So to reach net zero the UK must also directly remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere amounting to the equivalent of 100 million tonnes of carbon dioxide/year.

We are working on a number of funded research projects to help build up the knowledge needed in the UK and beyond to deliver net zero emissions by 2050.


Our Research Projects

We are currently working on a number of projects with a common focus on how we make the best use of our natural resources to meet UK Net Zero Commitments. We have a  focus on evaluating the role tree planting can play in meeting net zero targets, and explore how land use more widely can be part of the answer to the challenges facing People and Nature this century.
