Product Overview

To avoid significant global disruption, scientists assert that global warming must be kept below a 2-degree Celsius rise from pre-industrial levels?a goal formalized in the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement. Meeting that challenge will require near-total decarbonization of global economic activity by 2060. The industrial sector accounts for close to a quarter of global greenhouse gas emissions. This briefing summarizes the key findings from the report titled "Path to 2060: Decarbonizing the Industrial Sector." Focusing on the most carbon-intensive industries?steel, cement, and petrochemicals?the report explores the technologies poised to decarbonize operations and the levers needed to accelerate their adoption.
