The three key pillars of the Framework include:

  • Green Transport (maritime, aviation, and zero emissions vehicles);
  • Low Carbon Energy Technologies (hydrogen, carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS), and grid technologies including interconnection, cross-border electricity trade and solutions to improve system resiliency and flexibility); and
  • Carbon Markets and Sustainable Finance.
