European Sustainable Energy Week 2023 – Climate Neutral Europe: Safeguarding Jobs and Industrial Competitiveness
22nd June 2023
4 PM CEST (Brussels)
The European Commission will be hosting the European Sustainable Energy Week 2023, and the Global CCS Institute is excited to take part in a session exploring the potential of CCS in enabling a just transition to net-zero, and the skills necessary for its widespread deployment.
The transition to climate neutrality will require a significant transformation of energy- and carbon-intensive industries, such as cement, lime, steel, and chemicals, which form the backbone of the European economy. Carbon capture and storage (CCS) offers these sectors the most cost-effective route to decarbonisation, while preserving jobs and maintaining industrial activity. A precondition for the development and deployment of CCS at scale is the availability of a workforce with a particular set of skills.
