Global energy consumption from industry has the potential to be reduced by 25% if the best available technologies are adopted to improve efficiency. A more circular economy can reduce CO2 emissions from four major industry sectors (plastics, steel, aluminium and cement) by 40% globally, and by 56% in developed economies like Europe by 2050.
At the Climate Group, we're driving low carbon industry innovation. We're doing this by building and showcasing demand for low carbon concrete and net zero steel. We're also bring together the key players from business and government to discuss, collaborate and share knowledge in a way that supports industry action and encourages clear and supportive policies.
Our work on industry
Creating a market for net zero concrete
ConcreteZero is our newest global initiative, sending strong demand signals to shift global markets toward the sustainable production and sourcing of concrete - an industry currently responsible for 8% of global emissions.
Building demand for net zero steel
SteelZero is a global initiative that brings together leading organisations to speed up the transition to a net zero steel industry.
Every single net zero conversation must begin with energy efficiency
EP100 is a global corporate energy efficiency initiative bringing together over 120 ambitious businesses committed to measuring and reporting on efficiency improvements.
Guidelines to help policymakers cut their industry emissions
Our work with Under2
Highly-industrialised regions cutting industry emissions
We work with Under2 Coalition governments from highly industrialised regions across Europe and North America to develop strategies to cut industry emissions, while supporting jobs, growth and prosperity.
