October 6, 2021 /3BL Media/ - 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.
