The 2015 Paris Agreement set an ambition to limit global warming to well below 2°C and pursue efforts to limit it to 1.5°C. This has made decarbonization a global imperative and a priority for governments, companies and society at large which, in turn, are making commitments and increasing efforts to close the gap to net-zero emissions. To realize this ambition, an path forward to achieve significant emissions reduction must be made in hard-to-abate sectors—which requires a concerted global effort.
Deloitte, in collaboration with Shell, has developed a series of reports exploring the decarbonization of hard-to-abate sectors, such as, aviation, construction, road freight, steel, etc. The findings in these reports are from the interviews Deloitte and Shell conducted with several industry leaders and executives across multiple countries identifies potential solutions to accelerate the industries’ transition towards net-zero.
