A key challenge for the Industry

The industry, which accounts for approximately 20% of global greenhouse gas emissions, has a crucial role to play in reducing CO2 emissions and, more broadly, preserving our ecosystem. It must also demonstrate resilience to ensure its sustainability.

To succeed in this transformation towards more sustainable models, the industry must address five main challenges:

  • Evolution of the business model
  • Consumer expectations for more sustainable products/services
  • Development of new offers/services related to circularity
  • Transition to cleaner technologies
  • Regulatory compliance
  • EU Green Deal aiming for carbon neutrality by 2050
  • “Fit for 55” package presented by the EU in July 2021
  • Sectoral and country-specific adaptations of European standards
  • Competitiveness
  • Impact on profitability of compliance and carbon taxation
  • Sometimes required CAPEX for implementing certain actions
  • Opportunities for industrial players to generate savings:
    alignment with the “just-in-time” approach, utilization of existing flexibility
  • Engagement of suppliers and customers
  • Collaborative reduction initiatives for upstream scope 3 emissions with suppliers
  • Customers financing a portion of the transition to more sustainable models
  • Attractiveness and HR challenges
  • A strong factor for employee mobilization/engagement
  • A differentiator in recruiting new talents
  • New skills to be developed
