Climate Action: Industry Transition Summit

18th – 20th May 2021

We are delighted to partner with Climate Action for the Industry Transition Summit taking place on the 18 & 20 May 2021.

Industry accounts for roughly 30% of global CO2 emissions and as demand for products including steel, cement, chemicals and precious metals is set to increase, industrial actors will have to cut emissions sharply in order to achieve the 1.5-degree scenario.

The Industry Transition Summit will bring together investors, policy makers and business leaders to share key decarbonisation solutions for the hard to abate sectors and heavy industries with a view to enabling industrial decarbonisation over the next decade.
