How can industry innovate to meet the climate challenge and drive sustainable growth?

Industry is the key contributor to economic growth and prosperity, and is also a leading global source of greenhouse gases (GHGs). The International Energy Agency estimates that to meet global GHG reduction goals by 2050, a full quarter of all reductions need to come from the industrial sector. This contest seeks innovative, well-described, actionable solutions that will enable continued global economic growth, while achieving major emission reductions in the industrial sector in the coming decades.
