Deploying carbon capture is a must to reach net-zero targets, across several industries and sector. This requires hundreds of large-scale projects to be established over the next 10-15 years. Due to often lacking business models, financing large-scale projects is challenging. This official side-event of the 2022 Asia Clean Energy Forum brings together governments, the finance sector and expert analysts to discuss how CCUS financing and investment can be accelerated.
- To explore what role different types of financial market players can play in deploying CCUS;
- To present the role of government policies in the wider Asia region, to help establish business cases;
- To discuss how governments and the finance sector can collaborate in the Asia region.

About the Organizer
The Clean Energy Ministerial CCUS Initiative:
Created in 2010, the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) is a global forum where major economies and forward leaning countries work together to share best practices and promote policies and programs that encourage and facilitate the transition to a global clean energy economy. CEM members account for approximately 75% of global greenhouse gas emissions and 90% of global clean energy investments.
The Carbon Capture, Utilisation, and Storage Initiative is one of over twenty work streams ensuring year-round work of the CEM. The twelve Member Countries of the CCUS Initiative are leaders in CCUS and have joined together to create a sustained platform for governments, the private sector, and the investment community to engage and accelerate CCUS deployment. The Initiative works to facilitate investment opportunities and to disseminate emerging CCUS policy, regulatory and investment best practices and novel ideas.
