Mission Possible Partnership: Elevating the role of sectors in the global story of decarbonisation

Listen to Alex’s chat with the Rocky Mountain Institute about the need to elevate sectors’ role in decarbonisation and their Mission Possible Partnership

Paul Bodnar brings extensive experience of climate finance and policy from his early career in investment through to his role in the Obama administration and his more recent leadership role at the Rocky Mountain Institute. Amongst the many projects he has led and influenced, Paul took a principal role in formulating the U.S strategy for the Paris Climate Conference. He is also a senior associate (non-resident) at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) and serves on the Board of the Carbon Tracker Initiative.

Hot on the heels of the Mission Possible Partnership’s launch at Davos, Alex and Paul talk about the MPP, the mechanisms that can be developed to link finance and investment to improving CO2 per tonne of product – and about the how the nation-based approach developed in the Paris agreement can be augmented by platforms and policy that support the major emitters (which work across borders) in delivering Net Zero.

Decarb Connect supports the acceleration of industrial decarbonisation around the globe. We share insights and facilitate collaborations across the emerging decarbonisation ecosystem. We look specifically at the most energy-intensive industrials from cement, metals and mining, glass, ceramics, chemicals, O&G and many more and help connect them to technology disruptors, investors and advisors.

Through the Decarbonisation Leaders Network (DLN), our members (a cross-sector network of those leading decarbonisation in energy-intensive industries) share insights and experiences as they accelerate their Net Zero plans. Check out Decarb Connect’s offerings and learn about the Decarbonisation Leaders Network members, meetups and benefits.
