Topic Sheet: Deep Decarbonization in Industry

Topic sheet no 11, November 2020 (click link for download)

The industrial sector is one of the highest GHG emitting sectors globally. For global GHG mitigation, all sectors must be seen in a sector cross-cutting context. This is, not the least, true for the industrial sector. Also, within this sector, a large number of competences, scientific disciplines and industry sector types must cooperate in order to achieve a deep decarbonization.

In October 2019, the IETS TCP organized an expert workshop, covering – in a broad way –  most major aspects of deep decarbonization. Presentations, discussions, conclusions and suggestions for further work from the workshop have been summarized in a Final Report, available here at the website.

This Topic Sheet is based on the Executive Summary of the report.
