An impactful year!


We’ve just arrived back from Poland where we took part in COP24 in Katowice. There, we launched our flagship publication, “The Global Status of CCS: 2018”, and unveiled a plethora of incredible new ambassadors, our youngest being a 17-year-old Jade Hameister, Polar Explorer. 


 In our last newsletter of the year, you will be able to catch up on our recent webinar, “Is the world ready for CCS?”, revisit the highlights from the “Accelerating CCUS” conference in Edinburgh and read our latest thought-leadership piece on the value of CCS. You can also find out more about our 2019 plans and last, but not least, you can discover some of the new features of our brand new website! Our CEO Brad Page said 2018 has been “an impactful year in every sense of the word”. 


Here’s to 2019 being even more significant and impactful! We’d like to thank our Members, ambassadors and supporters for all the support throughout the year, and we’d like to wish you all a very happy and prosperous 2019.
