Developing the public engagement strategy for the Guangdong CCUS Demonstration Program

29th October 2015

Topic(s): Carbon capture use and storage (CCUS), Public engagement

The Global CCS Institute and the UK-China (Guangdong) CCUS Centre have authored this report to document the process that has been undertaken by the China Resources Power (Haifeng) and China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC) Integrated Carbon Capture and Sequestration Demonstration Project (CRP Power Project) to develop a public engagement strategy for the project.

This undertaking is the first of its kind in China and is an ongoing journey.To date, the majority of CCS public engagement project case studies have analysed activity that has taken place in Europe, North America and Australia. An important next step is to reflect on how current best practice may apply in other regional contexts. The experiences and lessons learned by the CRP Power Project may be useful to other CCS project proponents in China who are considering the development of a public engagement strategy.

This report is authored by Peta Ashworth (Ash Research), Jessica Morton (Global CCS Institute), Yamin Lin and Si Cao (Nafang Media) and Xi Liang (UK-China (Guangdong) CCUS Centre). The authors would like to acknowledge the strategic advice and input from Qianguo Lin (Global CCS Institute) and Dr David Reiner (Judge Business School, Cambridge University).

Jessica Morton, the Institute’s Public Engagement Advisor Asia-Pacific has written an Insight that provides an overview of this report and other recent CCS public engagement activities in the Asia Pacific region.
