Project description

The C- SINK project aims to establish the foundations for a standardized and transparent European Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) market. The project’s overarching vision is to tackle climate change by complementing existing EU and international mitigation efforts through the responsible deployment of CDR technologies.


The technological potential of CDR solutions to limit global warming and achieve net negative greenhouse gas emissions is now recognised by the IPCC. However, there is currently a limited understanding of CDR and an absence of agreed high-quality standards on the technologies, creating barriers to their appropriate deployment in the EU.

To overcome these barriers, the C-SINK project will establish robust MRV pre-standards and policy strategies based on a comprehensive evaluation of environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria relevant to CDR, facilitating the development of trustworthy accounting methodologies.
