About Us

Who we are

A leading international CCS think tank

The Global CCS Institute is an international think tank whose mission is to accelerate the deployment of carbon capture and storage (CCS), a vital technology to tackle climate change and deliver climate neutrality.

With a team of professionals working with and on behalf of our Members, we drive the adoption of CCS as quickly and cost effectively as possible by sharing expertise, building capacity and providing advice and support so that this vital technology can play its part in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Our diverse international membership includes governments, global corporations, private companies, research bodies and non-governmental organisations; all of whom are committed to CCS as an integral part of a net-zero emissions future.

We are headquartered in Melbourne, Australia, with offices in Washington DC, Brussels, Beijing, London, Tokyo and Abu Dhabi.

Accelerating CCS: Five-Year Strategic Plan

Carbon capture and storage has seen a steady rise in both interest and adoption over the last few years. As CCS progress continues to grow, the Institute looks forward to playing a key role in helping to accelerate that journey globally.

What we do

Our mission is to accelerate the deployment of CCS globally

Our activities are focused around three goals:

Build Knowledge

As a leading CCS think tank, we are an unparalleled source of research, data and information on all aspects of CCS deployment. The Global CCS Institute offers expertise and knowledge across every aspect of CCS, providing our Members with accurate, insightful and impactful information and data about CCS, assisting them to build knowledge, connect with the right people and make informed business decisions.

No other organisation has the holistic capabilities or CCS expertise on a global scale. Our team includes geologists, scientists, engineers, economists, policy analysts, climate change experts, business developers and marketers, who provide expertise across the entire CCS spectrum.

Shift the Narrative

We promote and build awareness of CCS and its vital role in achieving energy security and emissions reductions targets to key media outlets, policymakers and important influencers around the world. This is critical given the proliferation of mis-information regarding the reliability, economics and applicability of CCS.

Enable Investment

We work with our Members and other businesses and governments, leveraging our CCS knowledge, skills and expertise, to enable investment in the next wave of CCS facilities. As policy and legislative changes create renewed opportunities around the world, now is the time to drive this investment.

How we create value
