What does “net zero CO2 emissions” mean?

Net zero carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are achieved when anthropogenic CO2 emissions are balanced globally by anthropogenic CO2 removals over a specified period.

Example: The second of Extinction Rebellion’s three demands states that “we must enact legally binding policy measures to reduce carbon emissions to net zero CO2 emissions by 2025 and reduce consumption levels.”
