The Global CCS Institute has appointed Philip Bainbridge as its new Chair of the Board.

Also a non-executive Chairman of the Papua New Guinea Sustainable Development Programme and non-executive Director of Beach Energy, Bainbridge will now serve as the new Chair of the Board, replacing Claude Mandil following his retirement.

“I believe that carbon capture and storage is a fundamental component in reducing emissions to mitigate climate change,” said Bainbridge.

“The Institute has a strong reputation as a centre of excellence and advocacy. I am honoured to be a part of the Institute and thank Claude Mandil and the Board for this opportunity.”

Bainbridge previously served as Chairman of Sino Gas and Energy Holdings. He spent 23 years at BP Group in various senior management and leadership roles including petroleum engineering, development and commercial positions.

“We are delighted to welcome Mr Bainbridge during his time of growth for the Institute. His experience and expertise will be a major benefit to the work of the Board for this opportunity,” said Brad Page, CEO of the Global CCS Institute. 

“I would like to tank Mr Mandil for his significant contribution to the Institute during his tenure as Chairman of the Board.”
