for net-zero.

Industry accounts for roughly 30 percent of global CO2 emissions. Industrial actors will have to reduce emissions sharply in order for the world to reach the target of the Paris agreement – to limit global warming to “well below” 2 degrees Celsius.

 

The Leadership Group for Industry Transition is grounded in the conviction that partnership between the public and private sectors is key to achieving the industrial transition and reach net-zero carbon emissions by mid-century.
