The Mission Possible Partnership is a coalition of public and private partners working on the industry transition to set heavy industry and mobility sectors on the pathway towards net-zero emissions by mid-century.
It focuses on developing partnerships to deliver key initiatives for enabling industries to achieve net-zero CO2 emissions, including aviation, circular cars, heavy-duty road transport, shipping, aluminium, chemicals, cement and concrete, and iron and steel.
MPP is comprised of four core partners – the Energy Transitions Commission, Rocky Mountain Institute, the We Mean Business coalition, and the World Economic Forum. The International Energy Agency will provide guidance and input on various aspects of MPP’s work, including engagement with governments and energy modelling. MPP’s efforts will be strengthened by the expertise of its supporting partners, which rank among the world´s most influential organizations in industrial decarbonization, finance and policy development. These include the Center for Climate-Aligned Finance, Ceres, the Climate Champions of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the Global Maritime Forum, SYSTEMIQ, the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative, and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development.
