The CCSA is looking to appoint an EU Director to act as Secretary General for the EU Zero Emissions Platform and lead our Brussels team.
Climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our time and the ability to capture, transport and store or utilise carbon dioxide will be crucial to ensure a sustainable, competitive and equitable transition to a climate neutral Europe.
Through its Brussels office the CCSA provides the secretariat for the Zero Emissions Platform (ZEP) and the CCS and CCU platform for Research and Innovation (“Implementation Working Group 9”) under the EU’s CCUS SET-Plan). Both programmes support the coordination and collaboration of a wide range of stakeholders, including EU institutions, national governments, industry, researchers and civil society to provide technical advice to the EU on the deployment of CCS and CCU.
The Carbon Capture and Storage Association (CCSA) is the trade association accelerating the commercial deployment Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage (or CCUS) through advocacy and collaboration. Our ambition is to see CCUS developed and deployed at the pace and scale necessary to achieve net zero emissions by 2050 and deliver sustainable growth across regions and nations. We represent a wide variety of organisations with an interest in the development and deployment of CCUS across many applications to decarbonise heavy industries, power and hydrogen production, and remove carbon dioxide directly from the atmosphere. The CCSA team works across two offices, with staff based in London and Brussels.
The CCSA’s EU Director will be the ZEP Secretary General, working with the ZEP Advisory Council to further establish the ZEP as trusted advisers on CCS and CCU in Europe and will lead the CCSA’s Brussels-based team as the most senior role in the Brussels office, working closely with the CCSA’s Senior Leadership Team and CCSA Board on the CCSA’s European advocacy work.
The EU Director will report to the CEO of the CCSA and will be based in our Brussels office.
As the Secretary General of ZEP, the role will report to the ZEP Advisory Council and the ZEP-Communications Board of Directors.
