Technology that sucks carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere will be essential to prevent climate change, a UN report concludes today.

Almost half (45%) of climate-changing emissions currently come from the global management of land and the production of goods and food. Tackling these emissions requires a shift to a circular economy, which keeps materials and resources in use for as long as possible.
