CCS in the Circular Carbon Economy: Policy and Regulatory Proposals

30th July 2021

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is essential to achieving net-zero ambitions and mitigating climate change. The total installed CCS capacity must increase 100-fold by 2050 to limit global warming to 2° Celsius above pre-industrial times, according to the International Energy Agency Sustainable Development Scenario. 

On the 29th of July, Ian Havercroft, Dominic Rassool, Alex Zapantis and Dr. Julio Friedmann presented a report on the policy and legal factors that impact the investability of CCS projects. Part of the Circular Carbon Economy: Keystone to Global Sustainability series with Columbia University's SIPA Center on Global Energy Policy, the report makes high level recommendations on how governments can facilitate greater private sector investment in CCS.


  • Ian Havercroft, Principal Consultant Policy, Legal and Regulatory
  • Dominic Rassool, Senior Consultant - Policy and Finance
  • Dr Julio Friedmann, Senior Research Scholar, Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia SIPA

Moderated by Alex Zapantis, General Manager - Commercial, Global CCS Institute
