We work with our members and partners on cutting-edge research projects on climate policy. Our projects produce recommendations for policy-makers and other decision-makers on how they can accelerate climate action in the global race to net-zero emissions.
This project will assess the strengths and weaknesses of various border carbon adjustment agreements, with a focus on how agreements between multiple countries/regions can increase climate-trade policy efficacy.
This initiative brings together research institutions across nine countries in the Global South – Colombia, Ghana, Indonesia, Argentina, Bangladesh, Kenya, Laos, Malawi and Vietnam – in a new approach to develop tailored just transition strategies.
This initiative will develop a better understanding of oil & gas transition scenarios for the North Sea region. It will also co-produce just and feasible transition pathways and create roadmaps for countries facing similar challenges.
The Initiative, established in 2017 as Platform for Coal Regions in Transition, helps European countries, regions, communities and workers to take on the challenge of diversifying the economy while boosting the clean energy transition.
The Climate Friendly Materials Platform brings together policy makers, industry representatives, practitioners in industrial decarbonisation and applied researchers for the development of a shared understanding of tangible policy options. It builds on the continuous work since 2013 to develop a common policy action at the national and EU level to successfully decarbonise the European basic materials sector.
Funded by the EU H2020 programme, C4U is an interdisciplinary project aiming for full integration of CO2 capture in the iron and steel industry, looking at two highly efficient CO2 capture technologies. It has a detailed consideration of the safety, environmental, societal, policy and business aspects for successful incorporation into the North Sea Port CCUS industrial cluster in Belgium and the Netherlands.
