Stakeholder engagement is crucial to ensure the success of CCS and CCU projects. As Europe aims to meet its climate targets, deploying large-scale CCS projects becomes essential for the decarbonisation of hard-to-abate industries. Beyond securing incentives and funding, these projects rely on support from various jurisdictions, impacted communities, and civil society at large. Raising awareness and gaining public support are key challenges that must be addressed to enable decarbonisation efforts.
