Using materials more efficiently, reusing and recycling products, and minimising waste will help reduce emissions, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

The IPCC, the UN body which assesses the science related to climate change, published its latest report yesterday (4 April), looking at the mitigation of climate change. Headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, the IPCC is composed of 195 member states.

Greenhouse gas emissions from the industrial sector accounted for 24% of all direct anthropogenic emissions in 2019, the IPCC says.

Reducing these emissions to net zero is “challenging but possible”, the report suggests, and to do so will require “coordinated action throughout value chains to promote all mitigation options”.
