DRAWDOWN  n.
The point at which greenhouse gases in the atmosphere begin to decline.

 

Project Drawdown is developing a book, open-source database, and digital platform describing how one hundred solutions deployed at scale can alter the composition of our atmosphere and help forge a path toward temperature decline.

We are creating a detailed, impeccably researched description of “state-of-the-shelf” solutions that are currently in use and the impact they will have within thirty years. This carefully vetted, comprehensive list include technological solutions such as renewable energy and energy efficiency measures; social solutions that require behavior change like lowering consumption of material goods and limiting population growth; and ecological solutions that restore carbon in soils and plants by bio-sequestering CO2.

This list represents “no regrets” initiatives, solutions that should be implemented whether or not the threat of climate change existed. These are solutions that improve lives, protect the environment, and mitigate climate change.
