In a report released by the UN International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) titled ‘Mitigation of Climate Change’, authors – part of Working Group III – pointed to the critical role carbon capture and storage (CCS) will play as a climate solution, on the urgent path to limit global warming.

The Institute takes a closer look at this key IPCC report in a newly released brief, authored by our Senior Policy Adviser on International Climate Change, Noora Al Amer. In it, the Institute unpacks the details of the IPCC findings, highlighting:
