Accelerating CCUS globally event

There is a broad international consensus that CCUS has a vital role to play in meeting global climate ambitions. In its Clean Growth Strategy, the UK Government committed to working with international partners to find ways to bring down the costs of CCUS and accelerate its global deployment.

Organised by the UK Government and the Global CCS Institute, the “Accelerating CCUS globally” event is a day-long conference that will bring together leading global experts to discuss the value of CCUS, explore business models, and the future of CCUS technologies and seek practical solutions and actions to accelerate the deployment of CCUS globally.

The event will be an opportunity for all participants to advise on their priorities for action to progress CCUS globally.

The event will gather speakers, delegates from governments, industry, the finance community, academia and leading experts from around the world.

This global conference will be part of a series of invitation-only events hosted alongside the high-level CCUS Summit held the day before, 28 November, and co-hosted by the UK Government and International Energy Agency.
