E3G and The Transatlantic Climate Bridge invite you to a webinar presenting the findings from a co-authored report on steel standard-setting initiatives and the diplomatic and political processes behind them.

Industrial decarbonisation is critical to the achievement of net-zero emissions. In order to reduce emissions from sectors traditionally viewed as harder-to-abate, such as steel, the embedded carbon of such goods must first be calculated. Many standards for evaluating products’ carbon intensity exist or are being developed around the world at various levels of governance. The United States’ Buy Clean procurement plan, the Clean Energy Ministerial’s Industrial Deep Decarbonisation Initiative (CEM IDDI) and the Responsible Steel Standard are national, supra-national, multilateral and private sector initiatives doing just this.

The Transatlantic Climate Bridge and E3G co-authored a report analysing these steel standard-setting initiatives and providing an in-depth look at the diplomatic and political processes behind them. This event will present the major findings from this report and shed light on the opportunities for harmonisation across these initiatives and where there is room for greater political and diplomatic collaboration.

Speakers include:

  • Malte Bornkamm, Head of the Division for Industrial Decarbonisation, German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action
  • Rana Ghoneim, Chief, Energy Systems and Infrastructure Division, United Nations Industrial Development Organisation
  • Fiona Skinner, Project Administrator, United Nations Industrial Development Organisation
