About the project
During the project, state and regional governments will work together in groups to identify the key challenges they face in transitioning their industry to be low carbon.
Representatives from industry, system change experts and researchers will provide participants with tailored technical support so that governments can develop impactful, innovative and ambitious industry emission reduction strategies.
The Industry Transition Platform is a joint project of the Climate Group and the German state government of North Rhine-Westphalia, funded by Stiftung Mercator.
