  • ​Can CSOs solve the climate crisis? • Written by Acre's Marie Cloherty for Business Leader

    ​In this guest article, Marie Cloherty, Executive Director of Sustainable Business at Acre, discusses what can be done following last year’s COP27 and the lack of action against the climate crisis.

    Last year’s COP27 left many feeling flat. I was one of them. And let’s be honest – the conference fell short of any real commitments to decarbonise with the necessary speed and urgency. As global temperatures continue to rise, it’s clear that businesses will need to take the most action to solve the challenges we now face.

  • Will the delivery of net-zero aviation still be up in the air by 2050?

    ​With the world’s long-awaited transition to sustainable aviation remaining an ever-pressing issue, an emission reduction strategy is vital for decarbonising the sector.

    The UK government’s Jet Zero Strategy, launched last July, is the blueprint for achieving net-zero aviation by 2050. It highlights vital objectives, which include boosting the country’s sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) sector and focusing on system efficiencies to reach net-zero emissions in domestic aviation by 2040.

  • Funding for pioneering nature projects to identify carbon capture

    Natural England has announced a £4.3 million funding package to trial carbon capturing and benefit a handful of projects across England.

    CO2 can be removed from the atmosphere using nature-based solutions, which will not only tackle challenges affecting people and nature but also prevent emissions from agricultural land and degraded natural sites.

  • DAC Concrete for US

    ​Could this innovation provide a concrete solution to the climate crisis?

    Two firms have joined forces to permanently store carbon dioxide (CO2) in concrete using pioneering innovation to help fight climate change.

    The ground-breaking partnership between Californian-based Heirloom and CarbonCure Technologies in Canada has seen CO2 captured in a series of tests via direct air capture (DAC) technology.

    The milestone demonstration project has been underway at Heirloom’s headquarters in Brisbane, California, where the company runs America’s only operational DAC facility. The Microsoft-backed start-up uses limestone to extract CO2 from the air as it is inexpensive and easy to obtain.
