Key Financing Principles for CCUS

15th of September 2020 | 16:00 – 17:00

Event Overview

How can we kickstart significant investment into carbon capture projects? What action is needed from government, industry and the financial community to make CCUS a more interesting investment proposition? At this event, the CEM CCUS Initiative will launch the “Key Financing Principles for CCUS”, crafted in consultation with representatives of financial sector organisations. Earlier in 2020, the CEM CCUS Initiative established a Finance Sector Lead Group for CCUS, bringing together finance-sector institutions from around the world in a series of meetings to discuss the challenges and opportunities of CCUS financing. Throughout the process, the group created a set of key financing principles that outline how to support a business case for CCUS and to kick-start the financing of CCUS projects globally. This event will bring together representatives from CEM CCUS Initiative member countries, the financial community, and industry to launch the principles and to discuss their key features and CCUS investment. The event also includes a brief “fireside chat” with a CEM CCUS Initiative member country minister, to reflect on the panel discussion and on key requirements to accelerate CCUS more broadly.
