Created in 2011, the ENGO Network on CCS comprises organizations coming together around the safe and effective deployment of CCS as a timely mitigation tool for combating climate change.
Our shared goals include the following:
Ensure that CCS is performed and regulated safely, effectively and according to best practices, in a manner that protects our climate, human health and the environment.
Pursue domestic and international policies, regulations and initiatives that enable CCS to deliver on its emissions reduction potential.
Disseminate scientifically sound and objective information on CCS technology.
Work toward common positions and responses to international developments in the CCS arena.
Work to phase out the construction of new unabated, conventional coal-fired power stations as soon as possible, with CCS playing a part of the solution. In developed countries, no new, conventional coal-fired generation should be constructed without CCS.
Work to incorporate CCS in other types of fossil-fired power generation, industrial sectors, and in combination with sustainable biomass.
