The Taiwan Institute of Economic Research is attempting to conceptualize a new carbon offset for Carbon Capture Storage (CCS) in Taiwan but has limited knowledge on the US carbon offset market. The team interviewed and surveyed US stakeholders to learn more about CCS, the current carbon offset market, and to gauge public opinion of it. Findings revealed that stakeholders wanted carbon offsets to improve on transparency with where offsets are coming from, and accountability to avoid double counting. The team did not receive enough responses for a stakeholder analysis and therefore pivoted to developing a stakeholder analysis template. Our sponsor can use this template to do a full stakeholder analysis of the US carbon offset market in the future.
