Other Resources

Across the world, industry leaders are working to develop and deploy CCUS technology. See below for additional resources ranging from background materials on CCUS to reports on the state of our climate.

International Energy Agency (IEA) | Energy Technology Perspectives 2020 Report

Published in September 2020, the Energy Technology Perspectives flagship report focuses on the technology needs and opportunities to reach international climate and energy goals. The report maps out the technologies necessary to tackle emissions throughout the entire energy sector and shows the amount of emissions reductions that are required from electrification, hydrogen, bioenergy and carbon capture, utilization, and storage.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) | Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 °C

This five-chapter report identifies the impacts of global warming of 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels and related global greenhouse gas emission pathways in the context of advancing the global response to climate change, sustainable development, and work to eradicate poverty.

Global CCS Institute | Global Status of CCS 2023 Report

This report demonstrates the critical role of CCUS as nations and the industry at large accelerate to net-zero. Included in the report are detailed analyses of the global project pipeline, international policy, finance, and emerging trends.

Global CCS Institute Media Release | IPCC Report Reaffirms Carbon Capture and Storage as a Critical Technology for Mitigating Climate Change

Following a report from the UN International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the IPCC reaffirmed the vital role of CCUS technologies in achieving global climate goals. The Global CCS Institute’s CEO, Jarad Daniels, said the report underscores the scale of action required and the necessity of CCUS in limiting global warming.

CCUS and Climate Change

Climate change is the most urgent challenge facing humanity today, and the science is clear that we must use every tool at our disposal to avoid the worst of its impacts. CCUS plays an essential role in mitigating climate change, complementing energy efficiency, renewable power, electrification, nature-based solutions and other approaches.


The acceleration of CCUS technology is critical to reducing carbon dioxide (CO₂) emissions and reducing the costs of tackling the climate crisis.
