Climate Catalyst, TERI and SFOC will bring together leaders from industry and governments from Asia and major global economies such as India and South Korea to discuss strategies and policy pathways to accelerate steel decarbonization. Participants would include representatives from industry, government, and civil society. The roundtable will build on an industry convening we are hosting with Solutions for Our Climate in August 2022 and TERI’s ongoing work to analyze and articulate the roadmap to a net-zero steel sector in India.

The roundtable will focus on opportunities and policy levers to catalyze steel decarbonization, including demand side levers such as procurement as well as supply-side levers such as technology co-creation and financing, keeping in mind just transition principles. The event will contribute to building a community of practitioners, specifically from the Asian steel industry and encourage policy makers in these countries to put in place enabling mechanisms to accelerate steel decarbonization.
