climate positivity

The positive net impact of a product, company, municipality or a country on the mitigation of climate change.

Climate positivity prevents or mitigates climate change with a positive outcome from society’s perspective. In practice, more carbon is removed from the atmosphere than is emitted into it, so that the amount of emissions is negative (see carbon negativity and negative emissions). For example, a climate positive city could reverse the net climate impact of its region one of a warming into one of cooling. The concept is related to climate negativity.
