日本語サイトへ (To Japanese site)


Join us in Tokyo for the Japan CCS Forum 2022.
This annual event organized by the Global CCS Institute, the world’s leading authority on carbon capture and storage (CCS), provides a unique opportunity to discuss the role of finance and incentives to accelerate the commercial deployment of CCS in the future as a public event in Tokyo, Japan.

Free to attend the forum, delegates will enjoy a day of presentations on the unique theme. This time the meeting is in a hybrid format which takes the form of limited on-site participation (100 seat capacity) and online distribution (900 participants).

Welcome Message from the organizer
In 2022 we have seen yet another year of significant growth in the deployment of CCS. It is becoming increasingly clear and widely accepted that, without CCS, reaching our shared climate goals is practically impossible.
As governments around the world do the necessary work to map a path to net-zero, CCS continues to arise as a necessary to decarbonisation. Accordingly, governments have strengthened the business case for CCS, implementing a range of policies to incentivise deployment. Companies have embraced these policies and CCS is now being developed on an unprecedented scale. The Institute recently released the Global Status of CCS 2022, highlighting that there are now over 190 facilities in the project pipeline.
While the US and Europe are leading on climate, the recent acceleration of CCS across the Asia Pacific region has been encouraging. For its part, Japan continues to play an important role in regional CCS deployment, convening strategic partnerships, driving the utilisation of clean fuels like hydrogen, and developing new technologies. The development of a long-term CCS roadmap will only further the technology suites adoption.
Although the outlook for CCS has never been more optimistic, global efforts to reduce emissions are still inadequate. Urgent, broad, and large-scale CCS deployment will largely be the product of policy settings that attract private capital.
The Global CCS Institute looks forward to welcoming you to the Japan CCS Forum 2022, where we’ll explore CCS policy and financing.

Main Theme

1. The roles of finance and incentives in accelerating the commercial deployment of CCS

2. Update on the global CCS overview (Global, Middle East, China)


Background and Objectives

There is a growing understanding in many regions of the world that CCS is essential to achieve net-zero targets. This has meant positive momentum and growing support for CCS. More than 130 countries worldwide have set, or are considering, net-zero targets by mid-century, and about 80% of the long-term strategies submitted to the UNFCCC acknowledge the role of CCS.

Due to the enhancement of policy support in the United States and Europe in particular, the investment climate for CCS has significantly improved. Many businesses, regional communities, and financial institutions have set net-zero targets in response to the demands of the public and its shareholders, and governments and industry leaders are aware that the net-zero targets cannot be achieved without incorporating an appropriate proportion of CCS in their GHG emissions reduction targets. Japan is considering the development of a long-term CCS roadmap to achieve its carbon neutrality by 2050 and has set a quantitative target for CCS implementation. Public-private partnerships have been established towards this end.

It is important to stimulate investment and to introduce incentives to promote the commercial deployment of CCS. The recognition of risks and responsibilities based solely on technical solutions may not always coincide with that of private-sector financial institutions and insurance companies. It is crucial for CCS stakeholders to deepen their understanding from different perspectives across the finance sector’s approach toward CCS investment, particularly with regard to investment risk, long-term liability, and investment conditions, and to discuss solutions. The Japan CCS Forum 2022 will further these discussions, focusing on financing and incentives across the whole CCS value chain.
