An ESG Reporting Methodology to Support CCS-Related Investment
An ESG Reporting Methodology to Support CCS-Related Investment

9th June 2022

Topic(s): CCS Finance, CCS policy, ESG

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.

This thought leadership report from the Institute builds upon previous analysis, to consider in greater detail how project proponents and investors may leverage the benefits of their CCS-related investments and project operations, in the context of the wider reporting environment. The Institute has developed a CCS-specific methodology, highlighting potential pathways for the reporting of CCS activities within current ESG schemes and reporting regimes. This non-prescriptive approach aligns with the six high-level themes identified within leading existing schemes and is in-line with feedback received from a variety of stakeholders on consolidation and harmonisation.

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Assessments and CCS
Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Assessments and CCS

16th October 2020

Organisation(s): Global CCS Institute

Topic(s): ESG

At the request of the US Department of Energy, The Global CCS Institute undertook an examination of the significance and the extent of the influence of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) ratings in supporting investment in CCS project deployment.

The objective of this study was to consider the following five questions:

  • How does a company’s ESG rating impact the company?
  • How does a company’s CO2 footprint or exposure impact its ESG rating?
  • How is CCS considered when the ESG performance of a company with a large CO2 footprint or exposure is rated?
  • Do the positive impacts of CCS (if any) on a company’s ESG rating support the business case for investing in or financing CCS?
  • How does climate litigation and public policy impact corporate risk and ESG ratings?

The resulting assessment addressed each of these questions, to provide a clearer picture of the complex relationship between the development and scope of ESG ratings, the impacts of a company’s ESG performance and ultimately, whether this will influence future investment in CCS.
