Countdown to COP – Part II – Reaching Net Zero: The Paris Agreement, Regional Climate Commitments and the Role of CCS
1st September 2021
As more governments and energy intensive sectors commit to reaching net-zero targets by 2050, carbon capture and storage (CCS) is increasingly becoming a main feature in climate mitigations plans. Climate research show that CCS will be responsible for 15% of the worlds emissions reductions to reach mid-century targets. This event provided insights on the current state of CCS policies in various regions around the world, and took a closer look at multilateral efforts that can be taken to accelerate the deployment of CCS globally.
