Global CCS Institute releases five year strategy
The Global CCS Institute has released a draft Five-Year Strategic Plan to its international Membership.
The Plan outlines how the Institute will continue to work both at global and regional levels to accelerate the successful demonstration and deployment of carbon capture and storage.
The Plan also outlines how the Institute will continue to develop itself as a Member-driven organisation so that it may further champion the role of CCS in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
“In a relatively short time, the Institute has established itself as a primary channel of influence and expertise on carbon capture, use and storage” said the Institute’s Chief Executive Officer Brad Page.
“Our commitment to creating a Member-driven organisation means that we must ensure continued relevance to our Membership and a financially sustainable basis for the Institute’s future.”
The Institute’s Membership, built since its inception in 2009, currently totals 349 national and provincial governments, corporations, NGOs, research/academic agencies and industry bodies.
“Our growing Membership is testament to our solid achievements and continuing work program, and to the fact that we continue to be a global advocate for CCS,” said Page.
“We welcome Member feedback, and look forward to working with the Membership to shape the Institute’s future.”
The Institute will engage in extensive consultation with Members over the coming months to gather feedback on the Plan and forward strategy.
The Strategic Plan is expected to be finalised during 2012 with implementation to begin in 2013.
