Partnership of leaders.
Knowledge for action providers.
Who we are.
The Leadership Group for Industry Transition (LeadIT) gathers countries and companies that are committed to action to achieve the Paris Agreement. It was launched by the governments of Sweden and India at the UN Climate Action Summit in September 2019 and is supported by the World Economic Forum.
LeadIT members subscribe to the notion that energy-intensive industry can and must progress on low-carbon pathways, aiming to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
The Management Board
The Management Board is made up of representatives from Sweden, India, and the World Economic Forum. A Technical and Expert Committee, made up of LeadIT member representatives, advises the Board.
The Management Board also decides on the workplan of the Secretariat. The Secretariat is responsible for managing the work of the Leadership Group and is hosted by Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI).
Moreover, the Management Board approves new members. Find out more about how to become a member by downloading our Info Package.
To reach the goals of the Paris Agreement, it is necessary to achieve a dramatic reduction of the emissions from industry.
