Mission Zero has targeted nine areas of challenge and opportunity to significantly reduce CO2 emissions. While there are many other activities we can alter to reduce our carbon footprint, these climate solution tracks are ones we have identified as areas of greatest impact.
Decreasing Industry Emissions
Industrial activities such as manufacturing, food processing, construction and mining result in CO2 emissions from fossil-fuel combustion as well as the chemical processes used in producing steel and cement. Industry also generates indirect emissions from the vast amounts of energy it consumes. What are the easiest low-emission alternatives to industrial processes, and what’s preventing their adoption? Can consumer demand influence large industry to make major system overhauls? Is carbon capture and sequestration the only option for some processes? Would a carbon tax have the intended effect of moving industry to greener practices? What forces have affected policymaking, and can these be swayed?
