The Global CCS Institute’s General Manager, Americas Region Jeff Erikson has released the following statement regarding the recent announcement from the White House on President Trump withdrawing from the Paris Agreement:

“As an accredited observer under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, the Global CCS Institute recognises the critical role the Paris Agreement will play in the world’s cooperative effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while delivering energy security.  Consequently, we are disappointed in the decision by the Trump Administration to drop US participation in the Agreement.  We believe that climate change is and will continue to be both a significant threat to economic prosperity, and a great business opportunity for those companies who are investing in a low-carbon future.  We will continue to work with industry, governments, NGOs and research organisations to accelerate the deployment of carbon capture technology, and reduce the risks associated with climate change.”
