Anna-Maria Karjalainen is Director for Clean Energy Transition at European Copper Institute.
The consensus on the need for comprehensive action to mitigate climate change has never been stronger. The most recent report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change concludes that “immediate, rapid and large-scale reductions in greenhouse gas emissions” are needed to keep anthropogenic warming at 1.5°C, and that missing this target would have serious consequences. Moreover, it is now widely understood that cutting emissions requires action across all sectors of the economy.
The copper industry is committed to supporting the development of the sustainable infrastructure of the future, as copper plays an important role across the electricity system, in renewables, highly efficient buildings and electric vehicles. By 2050, copper-enabled technologies can reduce the EU’s carbon emissions by 75%.
