Representing approximately 20 percent of global GHG emissions, materials are a critical step on the path to decarbonization. Today, companies are rapidly ramping up climate commitments, and in turn, this raises the need and ambition to source sustainable materials.

The production capacity for low-emissions materials is set to fall short of future demand in the next 30 years. To meet ambitious greenhouse gas reduction targets and stay on course to achieve net-zero emissions, we must decarbonize materials-derived emissions at unprecedented scale and speed, which requires collaboration across the value chain from production and sourcing to use and implementation.

McKinsey’s Sustainable Materials Hub empowers organizations to solve the sustainable materials challenge and achieve carbon reduction commitments through the production and sourcing of low-carbon materials. We bring together experts at every step of the value chain and offer in-depth insights on the supply, demand, and low-carbon premiums across a wide range of commodities. (Read more)
