Webinar Invitation June 2021
Editor: Timo Gerres


AdHoc Webinar on June 23rd 16:00h (CET):
Industrial policy making for a climate-friendly industry

with Karsten Neuhoff, Head of Department Climate Policy, DIW Berlin

Look at our ambitious national climate-neutrality target ... but no idea how we can get there. Over the last years, many countries around the globe announced their goals of becoming carbon-neutral by mid-century. Net-zero emissions imply a profound transition of the heavy industry, especially the production, use and recycling of steel, cement, plastics and other basic materials. Such an ambitious transition will only be feasible if industrial policies lay the groundwork by creating a business case for low-carbon technologies.

RENEW-Industry is happy to announce our upcoming webinar featuring a 30-minute talk by Karsten Neuhoff about the need for coordinated policies to create markets for climate-friendly materials and unlock inclusive industry transition to climate neutrality. Motivated by the currently ongoing European debate about border carbon adjustment mechanism (CBAM) design, the webinar will focus on the findings from the latest academic publications of the Climate Friendly Materials Platform and their relevance for industrial policy making. Leading questions are:

  • How can a combination of different policies kick-start the transition?
  • What makes it so important to have a functioning carbon price mechanism in place?
  • Which are the required elements of a border carbon adjustment mechanism?
The talk will be followed by 15-30 minutes of Q&A to answer all your questions and provide an open platform for debate.

If you have any questions before the actual event, please mail them to us.
