We're driving low carbon industry innovation through our SteelZero and ConcreteZero initiatives.

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 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 Industry programmes


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 125 ambitious businesses committed to measuring and reporting on efficiency improvements.

Our policy work

Global Framework Principles for decarbonising heavy industry

Guidelines to help policymakers cut their industry emissions

The framework sets out six core principles which each represent an essential lever that policymakers can use to ensure the successful decarbonisation of steel, cement, chemicals and other heavy industries.

Our work with Under2

Industry Transition Platform

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.
