IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme

IEAGHG funds research into carbon capture and storage (CCS), also known as CO2 capture and storage.

Our work focuses on technologies that can reduce our carbon emissions, and mitigate climate change and global warming. We are a not for profit organisation, and all of our work is subject to peer review ensuring that it remains impartial and unbiased.

Kyoto, once the capital of Japan, is a city on the island of Honshu. Kyoto is famous for its numerous classical Buddhist temples, as well as gardens, imperial palaces, Shinto shrines and traditional wooden houses.


It’s also known for formal traditions such as kaiseki dining, consisting of multiple courses of precise dishes, and geisha, female entertainers often found in the Gion district. The Imperial City (Emeritus) of Kyoto is one of the few Japanese cities that still have an abundance of pre-war buildings, such as the traditional townhouses known as machiya. However, modernization is continually breaking down the traditional Kyoto in favour of newer architecture, such as the Kyōto Station complex where the Granvia Hotel is located.


Kyoto became a city designated by government ordinance on September 1, 1956, and in 1997, Kyoto hosted the conference that resulted in the protocol on greenhouse gas emissions.




We look forward to welcoming you in Kyoto in September 2019
