The UK’s national research hub on Greenhouse Gas Removal.
Funded by UKRI, we conduct research, co-ordinate demonstration projects around the UK, connect to other relevant national and international programmes and commission grants through a flexible fund.
What we do
We are conducting cross-cutting research on the environmental, economic, social, cultural, ethical, legal and governance issues around GGR and co-ordinating across the national programme.
Who we are
CO2RE is a group of researchers and the co-ordinating Hub of the GGR-D Programme, the largest GGR programme funded by the UK government to date.
How we work
CO2RE is led by evidence and expertise, and values co-creation, engagement, diversity and inclusion. Responsible innovation is central to our approach.
What is CO2RE?
Funded through the UKRI SPF Greenhouse Gas Removal Demonstrators (GGR-D) Programme, CO2RE co-ordinates the Programme and conducts solutions-led research to evaluate a balanced portfolio of economically, socially and environmentally scalable GGR options, with associated policy design, engagement and outreach.
This will enable the UK to lead internationally on achieving global net-zero emissions, consistent with the Paris Agreement. Backed by seven institutions and led by the Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment at the University of Oxford, this is the largest GGR programme funded by the UK government to date.
Discover our launch event
In May 2022, CO2RE hosted a two-day conference on Greenhouse Gas Removal, alongside the rest of the Greenhouse Gas Removal Demonstrators (GGR-D) Programme and the previous GGR Programme.
The event, which launched our new programme, brought together researchers, policymakers, industry, media and the public to highlight the of GGR in effective, sustainable and equitable climate action.
