About DecarbEurope
DecarbEurope is a multichannel media campaign initiated by European Copper Institute with the support of ten industry associations and two media partners. The goal is to engage decision makers in policy and industry with cost-effective technical solutions that each reduce European GHG emissions by 100 to 500 million tons per year. Criteria for promotion under the DecarbEurope umbrella is is that the solution is technology-based, cost-effective, mature and scalable, and that it provides concrete solutions for a smart and user-centric energy system with ambitious targets.
