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 can not 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.

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

Through radical collaboration we will unlock investment to build the pillars of a Net Zero economy and mitigate climate disaster. It is time to go from targets to action.
