Global CCS Institute aims to ramp up carbon capture and storage technology to support climate neutrality by working with partners in the industry and the public sector.

“Hosting the MENA headquarters of the Global Carbon Capture and Storage Institute underlines Masdar and the UAE’s commitment to practical solutions to climate challenges,” said Dr. Sultan bin Ahmed Al Jabar, minister for Industry and Advanced Technology, UAE special envoy for Climate Change, and chairman of Masdar. 

“Carbon capture technologies are a critical tool for the global response to climate change and there is increasing awareness that widespread adoption will be essential to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement,” he added.

The Institute now joins other organisations and companies such as the International Renewable Energy Organisation and Siemens Energy which have regional headquarters in Masdar City.
