Exiting the carbon society requires a transition with respect to virtually all industrial processes and their associated products and services. Mistra Carbon Exit takes on this challenge by focusing on opportunities and barriers for mitigating carbon emissions along the industry supply chains - from the input of raw materials, over primary and secondary activities, to the final products and services demanded by the end user.
In five industrial case studies we will investigate the supply chains buildings, transportation infrastructure and transportation, covering at least 75 percent of Sweden’s CO2 emissions. Five academic work packages support these case studies with a high level of cross-interaction.
Mistra Carbon Exit will identify pathways and policies for how Sweden and Swedish companies can become frontrunners in transforming society and industries, providing low carbon products and services while at the same time addressing market risks. This will make Sweden an important international example for other countries to follow.
