The Global CCS Institute has welcomed 34 new members to its ranks in the last 12 months.
The Global CCS Institute continues to build its membership around the world, adding 34 new members since January 2020. The new members represent a diversity of businesses, as well as government agencies and research organisations, and span 16 different countries. The total number of Institute members now stands at 87.
“The world has come to understand that climate change is an urgent crisis, and that carbon capture and storage (CCS) is an essential element of the climate change solution. The growth in our membership reflects that,” said Jeff Erikson, General Manager for Client Engagement at the Institute.
“The diversity of our membership demonstrates that the CCS ecosystem continues to mature and grow. While our membership once consisted primarily of large emitters, our recent additions includes companies that are thinking of CCS as a revenue source, and are working out how it fits into their own business growth strategy,” Erikson added.
A recent analysis by the International Energy Agency estimates that CCS deployment to achieve the Paris Agreement goals will require investment of around US$9.7 trillion.
