About this Summit
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.
Technologies including hydrogen, electrification, biomass and digitalisation will be critical to transitioning heavy industry. Whilst it is clear that the responsibility to decarbonise industry lies with both the public and private sectors and the funding will have to come from both, it is unclear who will act first.
There is a need for constructive conversations, roadmaps, and dialogues around partnerships if heavy industry is to decarbonise and be part of a sustainable future.
About Transition Summits
The Transition Summits are a collection of high-level, 2-day virtual gatherings with each focusing on a specific sector transition: Hydrogen, Industry, Transport and Energy.
The Summits bring together key stakeholders driving sustainable and net-zero transition from policy and regulation to innovation, technology and investment. This is the ideal platform for investors, project developers, policy makers and innovators to share insights and expertise on key transition trends and opportunities.
These are highly sophisticated, 4-session events hosted on a professional virtual platform designed for our audience to network, connect and explore new opportunities within these specific sector transitions.
