The Industry Transition Platform (ITP) brought together 11 highly industrialised state and regional governments from across Europe and North America to develop impactful and ambitious strategies for industry emissions reduction.
Over a two and a half year process, ITP was set up for governments to share and learn with and from each other as they developed their strategies, using a mix of strategy development workshops, technical research, webinars and site visits. The ITP strategy development process was underpinned by continuous stakeholder engagement activities, ensuring that the voices of different actors affected by industry emissions reduction are shaping the strategy.
This guide shares an approach to stakeholder engagement when operating in a complex environment, such as industry emissions reduction. The aim of the guide is to share the tools and frameworks ITP participants used to design and carry out their stakeholder engagement activities.
Use this guide as a reference document, a lived experience of driving climate action, an inspiration and a thought-starter to help identify and collaborate with stakeholders within your context. The tools and templates have been shared with a reference to industry emissions reduction but can be applied to other systems such as transport or energy.
