As net zero commitments become more prevalent, and companies plan their target implementation journeys to reduce their value chain emissions - carbon capture, utilization and sequestration, or CCUS, will become a critical decarbonization lever.
While emissions reductions are critical and offsets have a role to play in enterprise carbon management, companies cannot offset their way to net zero without verifiable and permanent removals.
Reaching net zero by 2050 hinges on an unprecedented clean technology push from now until 2030. Staying on a net zero pathway will require immediate and massive deployment of all available clean and efficient energy technologies. CCUS is a proven method of reducing greenhouse gas emissions from energy intensive manufacturing facilities, industrial facilities and power plants.
ERM specialists across the globe are already working with clients to help them introduce CCUS into their operations.
