The FAPESP - SHELL RESEARCH CENTRE FOR GREENHOUSE GAS INNOVATION aims to be a world-class Centre for advanced studies with a focus on innovation towards sustainability and mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions. The Centre complements Fapesp's experiences in supporting high-level scientific research and technology development towards these fields. It aims to establish a world-class Centre with research investigations, innovation and dissemination of knowledge to contribute worldwide with solutions for the most significant challenge humankind is facing in the 21st Century: Climate Change. In this venture, the Centre has five distinct, but complementary, research Programmes: Nature-based Solutions (NBS), Carbon Capture and Utilisation (CCU), Bioenergy Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS), Greenhouse Gas (GHG) and Advocacy. The Centre brings together a technical and scientific team that has been involved, along the past years, with problems in the energy and environmental areas, proposing partial solutions in conjunction with one of the cited Programmes. The Centre intends to integrate this effort, exploring the distinct focuses complementarily; to give answers and provide innovative solutions, accordingly to the better possible planning, to the matters raised by the existing engineering problems, economic policies and social impacts associated to the emission of greenhouse gases and environment. The integration of these five themes and all knowledge and innovation generated in such Centre will directly support Brazil to achieve the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) through Research & Innovation. The Centre will serve to unleash the Brazilian potential to a sustainable energy transition, targeting an increase of well below 2°C in the global scenario of climate change. (AU)
