CCS: A New Approach to ESG and Reporting
27th June 2022
Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) has gone from aspirational activity to an essential aspect of commercial behaviour in recent years. The ESG reporting landscape remains dynamic and there is an increasingly clear opportunity for both project proponents and investors to leverage ESG frameworks for the deployment of CCS in pursuit of decarbonisation. However, while there are few barriers to reporting CCS-specific activities within an organisation’s climate risk mitigation activities, questions remain about the quality and utility of this information. The Institute's proposed reporting methodology and Thought Leadership report, proposes a means of addressing this challenge and enable a wide range of stakeholders to understand the breadth of CCS-specific information that may be reported.
On 23 June 2022, the Institute hosted an interactive webinar in conjunction with the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM), and the King Abdullah Petroleum Research and Studies Center (KAPSARC). During the online event, we presented our recent ESG Thought Leadership report followed by a panel discussion with experts in the field on the future of ESG and its influence in supporting investment in carbon capture and storage projects.
