Ecolabels and their role in mitigating climate change

October 11, 2022

Ecolabels and their role in mitigating
The international type 1 ecolabelling schemes associated with the entire lifecycle of products and services had environmental and health attributes and has a significant role in mitigating climate change. Standards and criteria developed for ecolabels
assist in setting the bar for manufactured products and services to limit greenhouse gas emissions and reduce climate change impacts. Climate change represents a continuing threat to humanity and the natural world. The current effects of
anthropogenic climate change are far-reaching, from its effects on causing extreme weather to its impacts on natural ecosystems and human society

Decarbonizing heavy-duty trucking and accelerating the European hydrogen economy

whitePaper | March 28, 2022

The role of hydrogen as a key decarbonisation tool has become the subject of significant international interest. Over 30 countries have published hydrogen roadmaps, industry has announced over 200 hydrogen projects, and governments worldwide have committed more than USD70 billion in public funding.1 Hydrogen is a uniquely versatile fuel that can be used in a range of applications as a replacement for fossil fuels. Low-carbon hydrogen has come to be seen as a vital energy carrier for hard-to-abate sectors – where decarbonisation faces technical, operational and economic obstacles, such as the steel and heavy-duty trucking industries

Examining Supply-Side Options to Achieve 100% Clean Electricity by 2035

whitePaper | August 30, 2022

This study evaluates a variety of scenarios that achieve a 100% clean electricity system (defined as zero net greenhouse gas emissions) in 2035 that could put the United States on a path to economywide net-zero emissions by 2050. These scenarios focus primarily on the supply of clean electricity, including technical requirements, challenges, and benefit and cost implications. The study results highlight multiple pathways to 100% clean electricity in which benefits exceed costs. The study does not comprehensively evaluate all options to achieve 100% clean electricity, and it focuses largely on supply-side options.
