Carbon Capture and Storage technology provides companies and governments with an opportunity to reduce the impact of greenhouse gas emissions during the transition to a low-carbon economy. Yet policymakers, legislators and project proponents often struggle to make CCS cost effective, provide incentives for CCS technology development, regulate cross-border carbon dioxide transport, and establish property rights for carbon storage.
Our world-leading Climate Change Practice has a long history of helping clients overcome these challenges, counseling national and state governments including Australia, New Zealand and Norway on CCS legislative and policy development, technologies and projects. Through our work on these projects, we've developed relationships with funders such as the Asian Development Bank, British Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the UN Environmental Program, EU and World Bank. As a result, our lawyers have built an unrivalled reputation for providing expert legal advice in this niche market.
