Climate Action Innovation Zone

Decarbonizing Materials —
Hydrogen, Carbon Capture and Zero-Carbon Markets


Tuesday, 8 November

11:00 – 13:30 (10:45 registration)

Global Goals Room

The production of steel, aluminium and cement makes up a sizable portion of industrial CO2 emissions — yet these materials are indispensable to the global economy and will be needed in large quantities to build infrastructure for the energy transition. How can the industry cut emissions rapidly enough to stay on track for net-zero 2050 and a 1.5 degree target? What role will hydrogen and carbon capture play in the transition? And how can the Middle East and North Africa best leverage its vast potential for renewable energy to become the top exporter of green materials in a zero-carbon environment?

Join Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) – a global leader in low carbon engineering and technology – and their fantastic panel of industry experts in metals and cement on Tuesday 8 November to hear about their decarbonization journey, where they see major roadblocks, and what policymakers need to do to support.

50-min panel discussion followed by light lunch + mixer event.

This in-person event will also be streamed via LinkedIn Live.
