v4decarb - Decarbonisation of the industrial sector

Steel, cement, and chemical production are deemed to be hard-to-abate sectors. The project “Decarbonisation of the industrial sector: Sustainable finance as an opportunity?” aims at developing a policy roadmap for the industries as well as  coordinating a dialogue among industry leaders, policymakers, and capital market influencers in Visegrad 4 countries.

The project will provide the latest information and a clear analysis of the situation. They will serve as a starting point for a discussion, and planning for decarbonisation strategies. 

The project consortium plans to understand and compare viable decarbonisation options and outline a policy roadmap to attain the 2030 carbon targets. 

The initiative also provides a unique opportunity for stakeholders to leverage external support in order to develop in-house capabilities for governance and measurement for decarbonisation.

The v4decarb project is funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action from the European Climate Initiative. EUROPEUM Institute for European Policy is coordinating a consortium of 5 partners from the V4 countries – Czechia, Poland, Hungry and Slovakia. PEDAL Consulting is implementing the aforementioned activities in Slovakia.
