Over 100 countries have now set a target to have ‘net zero’ greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 or earlier.  How does this concept of ‘net zero’, which combines emission reductions with the sequestration of GHGs already in the atmosphere, relate to logistics?  What are the prospects of logistics being completely decarbonised by 2050 and in what ways might GHG-sequestration processes generate additional logistical activity?  This talk will try to answer these questions by reviewing the available evidence.
