This report presents a distillation of the main findings from ECO2 WP4, together with information available from other EU and Nationally funded projects, presented within and specifically for the context of Environmental Best Practice. The information and key messages contained within this deliverable (D4.4) will be directly applied to the project wide “Guidance on Environmental Best Practice” and will form the basis of Chapter 6 “Assessing biological impact of CO2 leakage”. There were 8 key findings that came from the ECO2 research conducted with WP4:

- Exposure to elevated levels of CO2 has a negative impact on marine organisms
- There is a wide range of CO2 sensitivities across different marine taxa and groups
- Care must be taken when predicting species specific response and sensitivity to CO2 for Environmental Risk Assessments
- Exposure to elevated levels of CO2 has a negative impact on marine communities, biodiversity and ecosystem processes / functions
- The leakage / release of formation water can have a negative impact on marine organisms
- Other environmental factors could exacerbate or ameliorate the impact of CCS leakage
- Some biological responses may be employed in a programme of Environmental Monitoring
- Collecting spatially and temporally referenced biological data is important for creating effective Baseline Surveys
