BRE's Environmental impact of biomaterials and biomass defines carbon sequestration as; '...the removal and long term storage of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere in biomaterials such as timber and agricultural products.'
‘Climate Emergency Design Guide: How new buildings can meet UK climate change’, published by The London Energy Transformation Initiative (LETI) in January 2020, defines carbon sequestration as: 'A natural or artificial process by which carbon dioxide is removed from the atmosphere and held in solid or liquid form, e.g. reforestation or, in the built environment through using timber.'
