Arcusa et al. (2022): Carbon removal accounting methodologies: how to rethink the system for negative carbon emissions

Arcusa S., Lackner K., Page R., Sriramprasad V., Hagood, E. (2022) IN: CNCE Working Paper No. 0001, November 2022. Arizona State University KEEP Repository,

The authors analyze current approaches to carbon accounting for removed carbon sold on carbon markets, focusing on carbon crediting under the framing of a remaining carbon budget, the issue of durability, and approaches to accounting methodologies. The authors explore the topic of mixing
carbon with other problems in developing carbon accounting methodologies and highlight the open policy questions. They conclude with a suggested framework for accounting for carbon removal accounting that simplifies climate action and enables a world with negative carbon emissions.
