Global CCS Institute CCS readiness Index

Organisation: Global CCS Institute

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is critical for meeting international climate change targets, and therefore deployment must be both rapid and global. To date, deployment has been limited to only a few countries and industries, with several factors slowing further progress. 

The Global CCS Institute (Institute) has developed a ‘CCS Readiness Index’ (CCS Index) which quantifies these factors, based on assessment criteria across four indicators — inherent interest, policy, legal and regulatory (legal) and storage — which reflect major barriers or enablers for the deployment of CCS.
