Webinar: Making the Impossible Possible: The Blueprint for Decarbonizing Industry

Webinar: Making the Impossible Possible: The Blueprint for Decarbonizing Industry

October 6, 2021 /CSRwire/ - Carbon-intensive sectors have no option but to drastically reduce their greenhouse gas emissions to reach zero. Failing that, global temperatures will rise beyond 2°C with dramatic consequences for the planet and humanity.

Seven industrial sectors – concrete, steel, aluminium, chemicals, aviation, shipping and trucking – make up 30% of global emissions today. They cannot achieve the transition to net-zero alone. They need the mobilisation and support of the full value chain, their suppliers, their customers, financial institutions and governments.

Ahead of COP26, the Mission Possible Partnership [MPP] will be demonstrating that industry is ready. Ready for the clean transformation opening up new business opportunities. Industry leaders mobilized by MPP will release the first industry-backed blueprints for sector transition and commit to tangible actions catalysing climate action.

Join Reuters Events on Thursday, October 14 at 10am EST / 3pm BST / 4pm CST for our free online webinar with:

  • Scott Kirby, CEO, United Airlines
  • José Maria Larocca, Board Member, Trafigura
  • Aditya Mittal, CEO, ArcelorMittal
  • Faustine Delasalle, Co-Executive Director, Mission Possible Partnership

Moderated by: Axel Threlfall, Editor at Large, Reuters

We will be covering:

  • Sector transition strategies: Developing a blueprint of what it will take in terms of technology, investment, divestment, demand, price variations, and policy mechanisms
  • Financing flows: Unlocking investment in low/zero-carbon solutions through the collective mobilization of industry, demand, finance, and policy players
  • Solutions scale-up: Going from innovation to demonstration to rapid technology deployment at scale
  • Action: Aligning CO2 emissions targets and actions
