The Net-Zero Industry Tracker

Cross-Industry Net Zero Readiness

Low-emission technologies have emerged, and demand signals are rising, but more decisive action is required to progress the infrastructure, policies and capital enablers


Technologies to enable low-emission production are expected to reach commercial readiness by 2030; driving costs down to accelerate wide-scale adoption is the priority.


Infrastructure to enable low-emission production must grow significantly to meet industry needs - risks of bottlenecks exist if investments lag.


Enabling infrastructure for net-zero industries will require twice as much investment as production assets.


Unlocking demand for low-emission products - despite green premiums - is critical to incentivize investments.


Targeted policy action by sector is required to level the playing field for low-emission producers.


Capital of about $2.1 trillion is needed to transform industries' asset base for net zero, but investment business cases are generally too weak to attract the required private funding.
