C3 Solutions outlines how to reduce emissions from heavy industry in Heavy Industry 101.
- Emissions reductions from heavy industries will be a critical component to meeting any global climate objectives.
- Due to the nature of these industries, climate solutions must be global and domestic.
- By reducing harmful domestic regulations, opening up global trade, and allowing the private sector to continue its environmental progress, we can reduce the environmental impact of heavy industries while maintaining American competitiveness.
“While economically important, heavy industry is also one of the leading CO2-emitting sectors of both the domestic and global economy. Globally, industry accounts for about 19% of direct greenhouse gas emissions and 33% of total emissions when supply chains are considered. Due to the versatility and importance of the products that these industries produce, lowering the adverse environmental impacts of heavy industry while maintaining economic competitiveness is essential to reaching overall climate objectives.”
