Opportunities for Enhanced Near-term U.S.-China Climate Action: Industrial Decarbonization

June 1, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 6:15 pm

Registration is free, but required. Register here.

Industrial emissions are responsible for approximately 60% of China’s greenhouse gas emissions, and 30% of U.S. emissions. Taking action to reduce emissions from industrial sectors like iron & steel, cement, and the chemical industry will be critical to helping the U.S. and China meet their mid-century carbon neutrality goals. What technological innovations and policy tools are available to the U.S. and China, particularly within this current decade? Join us to hear from issue-experts on opportunities in energy and materials efficiency, electrification, and the circular economy, including sharing insights from a new report, Decarbonizing Industry in the U.S. and China.
