Steel is the world’s most widely used material – a vital part of the infrastructure we will need in the net-zero cities of the future, yet production of steel is one of the biggest sources of global greenhouse gas emissions. The last few years have seen an upsurge in low emissions innovation in the sector and technological investment, but at the same time a host of barriers from technical challenges to companies facing significant commercial and structural barriers continue to hamper progress. Climate Group’s SteelZero initiative sends a signal to steel makers that demand for net-zero steel is growing – but there is a long way to go.
We’ll be asking, what will the future hold for net-zero steel amid an increasingly fragmented supply chain.
- What can governments, policy makers and business leaders do to support demand?
- How can we collectively promote investment in net-zero steel making technology around the world?
