About DecarbEurope

DecarbEurope is an ecosystem of 20 sectors, joining forces in a multichannel media campaign. It was initiated in 2017 by the European Copper Institute (ECI) with the support of several industry associations and media partners.

According to Bernard Respaut, Chief Executive of European Copper Institute, this campaign is a clear wake-up call for action: “The European Union’s leadership on climate change relies on reducing greenhouse gas emissions from energy-intensive sectors, and equally all the way down their respective value chains. To reach reductions that will keep us well below 2 degrees Celsius as stipulated at the CoP21 in Paris 2015, we need structured support for the full decarbonisation of technologies to foster economic growth and to consolidate EU leadership on addressing climate change globally.”

“This unique campaign provides a cross-sector roadmap that is not limited to a single technology.”
