Strategic Goals

CCTP’s goals are not based on any specific level of stabilized GHG concentration. Further scientific research is required to determine the level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system.

This Vision and Framework outlines six strategic goals that will guide the CCTP strategy planning and interagency coordination. In light of these goals, each participating CCTP agency will review its current R&D portfolio and, to the extent that agency missions and other priorities allow, organize its future R&D portfolio consistent with and supportive of one or more of these six CCTP strategic goals.

  • Goal 1. Reduce Emissions from Energy End-Use and Infrastructure
  • Goal 2. Reduce Emissions from Energy Supply
  • Goal 3. Capture and Sequester Carbon Dioxide (CO2)
  • Goal 4. Reduce Emissions of Non-CO2 Greenhouse Gases
  • Goal 5. Improve Capabilities to Measure and Monitor GHG Emissions
  • Goal 6. Bolster Basic Science Contributions to Technology Development
