In-Country Workshops

While global demand for low- and zero-emission products increases, as shown by the First Movers Coalition (FMC) purchasing commitments, there is a need to accelerate the supply of these alternatives. To this end, the FMC will convene a series of in-country workshops (ICWs). The objective of the ICWs is to accelerate local supply by supporting the adoption and upscaling of clean technologies in the hard-to-abate sectors: aluminum, aviation, chemicals, cement and concrete, shipping, steel and trucking.

The ICWs will bring together domestic suppliers, FMC member companies, technology providers, policymakers, financial institutions and civil society to share knowledge and experiences associated with the nascent clean technologies in the country, identify best practices, and develop collaborative solutions to support the growth of the local low- and zero-emission market.

The FMC plans to host ICWs in the following countries throughout 2023:

  • Australia
  • Singapore (aviation)
  • United Kingdom
  • South Africa (shipping, trucking)
  • India (aviation, cement and concrete, steel)
  • Brazil (aluminum, aviation, steel)



The Asia Pacific aviation market is the world’s largest and forecast to experience significant growth by 2050. Already supported by several initiatives, Singapore is well-positioned to become the regional leader for driving aviation decarbonization.

Singapore thus presents an ideal location to convene relevant stakeholders to:

Explore demand & supply dynamics for SAF85 with specificities of scope 1 & 3 in mind.

Discuss business case for SAF in Singapore and broaden understanding of opportunities for engagement of the finance sector in Aviation’s energy transition.

Discuss current policy landscape in Singapore and identify avenues for accelerating production and uptake of SAF85 in the lead up to 2030.

South Africa

Shipping and trucking

South Africa is well positioned to play a significant role in the future green fuel value chains due to its large renewable capacity and unique location sitting at the gateway between the Atlantic and India Oceans. Green fuels represent a significant opportunity for South Africa as well as the region and the focus towards the logistics sectors for the fuel production potential from renewable energy in South Africa bridges naturally with South Africa having the most developed transport and logistics sector in Sub-Saharan Africa, reflected in its relatively modern infrastructure and effective trade facilitation.


Aviation, Steel and Cement & Concrete

With industry currently being the second most emission-intensive sector in India, industry-wide decarbonization through scaling and adoption of low-carbon technologies will be critical in achieving the target of reducing its emission intensity of GDP by 45 per cent by 2030, as compared to 2005 levels. Here, the steel and cement & concrete sectors are of particular importance. These are major contributors to India’s economy with several large producers operating in the country. The country also holds significant potential to produce sustainable aviation fuels with carbon in agricultural residues, solid waste, and industrial off-gasses.
