The CSLF holds biannual meetings in CSLF member countries that provide a distinguished platform from which to address critical issues relating to CCS, build intergovernmental collaboration, engage key stakeholders and the academic community on pressing RD&D gaps and opportunities, and facilitate knowledge sharing, all of which can speed broader CCS deployment and encourage greater CCS investment worldwide. Ministerial meetings—the CSLF's highest decision-making body—are convened biennially to provide high-level policy and technical direction for the organization and to shape and disseminate key messages on CCS. The most recent Ministerial meeting was held in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, in 2015.

The CSLF also co-sponsors workshops (typically held on the margins of each CSLF meeting) that foster information sharing and collaboration to facilitate the development of CCS technologies worldwide. The CSLF Event Endorsement Guidelines explain the process for requesting that the CSLF co-sponsor an event.
