Simply shutting down industries and factories isn’t an option. We have to find a way to keep industry and people working without harming our environment. That’s why NECCUS has come together as an alliance to support the solutions needed to decarbonise industry.

In establishing NECCUS we also recognised that Scotland was the obvious choice in which to begin this journey to net zero. Scotland has committed to being net zero by 2045, five years ahead of the rest of the UK. Scotland is the only country to establish a Just Transition Commission – ( set out to ensure no one is left economically disadvantaged as we decarbonise our homes and industries. Scotland also has some unique advantages that allow progress rapidly and cost effectively.

NECCUS now has over 50 membership organisations in the alliance, representing the majority of current industrial emissions in Scotland, and the organisations who can help to abate these emissions.

Net Zero Roadmap

We are developing a net zero roadmap for the Scottish industrial cluster. The project, referred to as SNZR (Scotland's Net Zero Roadmap) covers some 9 Mt CO2 emissions per annum and nearly 30 large industrial sites from Lothian to Aberdeenshire


We are partnering on a net zero infrastructure project to put in place the initial projects and infrastructure to deliver hydrogen and transport & store carbon. The project is referred to as SNZI (Scotland's Net Zero Infrastructure).

Back the Scottish Cluster

We are supporters of the back the Scottish cluster campaign which unites our communities, industries and businesses to deliver CCS, hydrogen and other low carbon technologies, supporting Scotland, the UK and Europe to meet net zero goals.
