Our Mission

To accelerate decarbonisation of hard to abate industry sectors

The Decarb Connect Festival is a global summit that champions the strategies capable of fast tracking decarbonisation in the toughest-to-abate sectors.

The first festival ran in January 2021 with more than 360 taking part. Download the post-show report to find out more

The Decarb Connect Festival brings together industrials, investors, policymakers, game changing technologies and innovators – all sharing evidence-based strategies and road maps that will inspire all stakeholders to rise to the net zero challenge. If you are responsible for defining industrial net zero strategy, or for implementing it, this is your cohort.

Join us next time on these dates:
January 24-27 2022.

“We’re usually pretty siloed, but we know we’ll need to work across our whole value chain to decarbonise… we need to work out how to get commitments & then to make sure that these projects benefit all participants in terms of reporting”

“There’s no strategy in “electrify – just use more renewables”.  I need reliable and powerful energy sources that can really drive industrial heat consistently… and I need it to be cost effective”

“To hit NetZero by 2050 means having major pilots completed in the next 5 years… emissions unlikely to be static in that time so the scale of this challenge will only increase”
