Key findings from workshop on Industrial Cluster Decarbonisation: Sharing International Experience

On 21-22 June, IDRIC held a workshop – Industrial Cluster Decarbonisation: Sharing International Experience – on behalf of Net Zero Industries Mission (NZIM) as a UK contribution to Pillar 1 of the NZIM Action Plan: to facilitate a dialogue between stakeholders and joint learning across countries, sectors and technology pathways.

In this brief, we outline the potential role of industrial clusters in the industrial transition and present key messages from this workshop on how to accelerate their development.

*The workshop was organised with the support of the UK Department for Energy Security and Net Zero, the International Energy Agency, the Australian Heavy Industry Low-carbon Transition Cooperative Research Centre and the Clean Energy Ministerial Industrial Deep Decarbonisation Initiative, co- ordinated by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization. It attracted more than 60 participants from 14 countries in Europe, North America, the Middle East, Asia and Australasia, plus representatives from several international organisations.
