First Movers Coalition

Aluminum

Members commit to purchasing catalytic volumes of low-CO2 emissions aluminum by 2030. Deployment of break through technologies to reduce direct emissions in primary aluminum production is needed to deliver a net-zero aluminum sector by 2050. These technologies include inert anodes, CCUS, mechanical vapor compression, and green hydrogen.

Aluminum purchasers set a target that at least 10% of their annual primary aluminum procurement volumes by 2030 meets or exceeds the First Movers Coalition definition for low-CO2 primary aluminum. Optionally, purchasers can also commit to ensuring that at least 50% of all aluminum procured annually is sourced from secondary aluminum by 2030.

Aviation

Members commit to use emerging technologies including sustainable aviation fuels (SAF) with significant emissions reductions, electric, and hydrogen propulsion for air travel by 2030.

Airlines and air transport companies set a target of replacing at least 5% of conventional jet fuel demand with SAF that reduces life-cycle GHG emissions by 85% or more when compared with conventional jet fuel, and/or using zero-carbon emitting propulsion technologies by 2030;

Airfare and air freight purchasers set a target of replacing at least 5% of conventional jet fuel demand for air transport with SAF that reduce life-cycle GHG emissions by 85% or more when compared with conventional jet fuel, and/or zero-carbon emitting propulsion technologies by 2030 – in partnership with air transport operators.

Carbon Dioxide Removal

Members commit to contract for durable and scalable net carbon dioxide removal to be achieved by the end of 2030, in addition to their maximal direct emissions reduction efforts.

Members may choose to contract for at least 50,000 tons of durable and scalable net carbon dioxide removal removals to be achieved by the end of 2030, or as an alternative may choose to contract for at least $25 million of durable and scalable net carbon dioxide removal removals to be achieved by the end of 2030.

Shipping

Members commit to use zero-emission fuels in new and in retrofitted zero-emission vessels by 2030.

Carriers set a target that at least 5% of their deep-sea shipping will be powered by zero-emission fuels by 2030, enabled by ships capable of using zero-emission fuels.

Cargo owners set a target that at least 10% of the volume of their goods shipped internationally will be on ships using zero-emission fuels by 2030, on the way to 100% by 2040.

Steel

Members commit to purchasing volumes of near-zero emission steel by 2030.The deployment of breakthrough iron and steelmaking technology is needed to deliver a net-zero steel sector with minimal residual emissions. These technologies include hydrogen direct reduction, carbon capture use and storage, and electrolysis-based production processes.

Steel purchasers set a target that at least 10% of their annual steel procurement volumes by 2030 meet or exceed the First Movers Coalition definition for near-zero emissions.

Trucking

Members commit to purchase or contract zero-emission medium and heavy-duty vehicles by 2030. These can include battery or fuel-cell electric vehicles and also incorporate renewable sources of electricity and hydrogen for charging.

Trucking owners and operators also set a target that at least 30% of their heavy-duty and 100% of their medium-duty truck purchases will be zero-emission trucks by 2030.

Retailers & manufacturers set a target that they will require all of their trucking service providers to meet the trucking owners and operators’ commitment by 2030.
