High-durability carbon removal is gathering increasing attention in the national and corporate net-zero plans. Both public and private sectors have recognised the importance of this sector and started mobilising funding to scale it up. The first examples of projects that have received substantial public funding and are looking to stack it with the proceeds from selling removal credits on the Voluntary Carbon Markets (VCM) have emerged, together with diverging views on how to combine these resources. This paper provides a brief exploration of considerations for such situations, together with elaborating on the changing role of the VCM and possible ways forward.
Robust accounting is critical to ensure the EU achieves its carbon removal ambitions.

An update to my earlier paper on the European Green Deal, based on the key takeaways from the webinar with DG CLIMA.
The latest information and thinking on Article 6 of the Paris Agreement and its role in enabling countries to meet the objectives they have set themselves in their Nationally Determined Contributions, with particular emphasis on how it can impact on CCS.
A closer look at the European Green Deal with its extensive list of initiatives, and highlights what to watch out for in the coming days, months and years regarding low carbon technologies like carbon capture and storage (CCS). This paper explores how climate targets, governance, just transition, carbon border adjustment, industrial strategy, hydrogen, financing and infrastructure can support CCS technologies.
The overview outlines the main developments in negotiations on international carbon markets, technology mechanism, transparency framework and more.
