Decarbonising Industry

Key messages:

  • Policy makers need to support technology development and diffusion in the decarbonisation of industrial sectors and address associated socioeconomic issues.
  • Deep decarbonisation of industry by 2050 requires an increased rate of deployment of existing technologies and the emergence of breakthrough technologies in manufacturing.
  • The strong involvement of all stakeholders must be secured for the rapid diffusion and deployment of carbon-neutral technologies aimed at the decarbonisation of European industry.
  • Climate policy portfolios for industrial climate-neutrality should be differentiated in their support for short, medium and long-term challenges.
