Slide CCS+ Carbon capture and storage (CCS) in its various forms (+)

Mission statement

The CCS+ Initiative aims to scale cutting edge climate technologies by developing a robust accounting infrastructure that promotes environmental integrity. The CCS+ Initiative separately accounts for emissions reduction and carbon dioxide removal solutions.


What we want to achieve

CCS+ seeks to limit catastrophic climate change and reach net zero emissions by unlocking the potential of certified CO2 capture, utilization, removal and storage solutions around the world. 


How we plan to get there

By developing robust carbon accounting methodologies, with a solutions-focused modular approach, CCS+ enables the measurement and monetization of reduced emissions and removed carbon.


Why we believe in our approach

CCS+ takes a collaborative approach, grounded in industry expertise and scrutinized by an Advisory Group, to create a public good that adheres to the highest levels of environmental integrity.

A critical solution in mitigating climate change

The Paris Agreement goal is to limit global warming to well below 2 preferably to 1.5 degrees Celsius compared to pre-industrial levels. To achieve this long-term temperature goal, global greenhouse gas emissions need to peak as soon as possible to achieve a climate neutral world by mid-century.

CCS+ is expected to play a critical role in reducing emissions from hard-to-abate sectors as well as supporting the circular economy, through utilization activities (CCU). CCS+ technologies could also generate permanent carbon removals when combining CCS with CO2 from biomass (Bio-CCS, e.g. BECCS) or with direct air capture (DACCS) or through mineralization processes.

Get started



The CCS+ Initiative is a global, multi-stakeholder alliance, with a unique representation of technology and solution providers, large CO2 emitters, professional service providers, academia, and civil society.
