The Carbon Removal Working Group (CRWG) brings together representatives from a range of environmental, social justice, and development NGOs. The group exists so that members can learn about and consider the roles that carbon removal options might play as part of humanity’s response to climate change.

The group is to act as a hub for communicating the fundamental need for various Carbon Dioxide Removal technologies in attaining mid-century climate goals in the US. We work collectively to disseminate accurate and scientifically sound information on all aspects of carbon capture, transport, utilization, and storage technologies and practices. This group also seeks to engage with a diverse range of stakeholders while working toward the inclusion of the environmental justice sector at the onset of our work as a group.

The CRWG is convened by the Institute for Carbon Removal Law and Policy at American University. Please contact Jenn Brown at with questions or for more information about any of the CRWG’s activities.

The work of the CRWG has been made possible by generous funding from The New York Community Trust, The Johnson Foundation, and the V. Kann Rasmussen Foundation.
