THE NATURE CONSERVANCY JOINS THE CARBON CAPTURE COALITION
Arlington, VA | June 14, 2018
The Nature Conservancy is pleased to announce it has joined the Carbon Capture Coalition (CCC) as a member. Organized by the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions
(C2ES) and the Great Plains Institute
(GPI), the CCC is dedicated to realizing the full potential of carbon capture as a national energy, economic and environmental strategy.
“The Nature Conservancy recognizes that a wide range of technologies must be developed and deployed to achieve greenhouse gas emission reductions necessary to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. These solutions, including carbon capture and storage innovations, often provide opportunities to drive innovation and spur economic growth,” says Lynn Scarlett, co-chief of external affairs
of The Nature Conservancy. “We look forward to supporting the research, development and demonstration of carbon capture as one of the suite of technologies and strategies that can help address the challenge of climate change and build a more prosperous future.”
As a member of the CCC, The Nature Conservancy will help promote development of this suite of technologies in a way that is consistent with our conservation priorities and climate goals. We support robust efforts to foster research, development and demonstration of carbon capture technology while also continuing greenhouse gas emission reductions in all sectors of the economy and through land management solutions.
