Oxburgh report on Carbon Capture and Storage resets approach to pricing, delivering infrastructure and enabling UK climate action

SCCS welcomes the launch of the much-anticipated report on Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) in the UK by the parliamentary advisory group led by Lord Oxburgh.

The report describes a six-point plan for delivering CCS in the UK, a technology that is essential to meeting the carbon targets envisaged by the Paris Agreement on tackling climate change. With the US and China having now ratified this pledge, there is pressure on the UK Government to follow suit and swiftly reaffirm its leadership in low-carbon ambitions.
