Background information

Reaching the Paris Agreement (PA) objective to limit the temperature increase to well below 2°C and towards 1.5°C by the end of the century requires reaching carbon neutrality by mid-century and implies (almost fully) decarbonising all sectors of the economy. Countries, parties of the Paris Agreement, have to regularly revise their national contributions and commitments to achieve this goal.

Since the PA, corporate commitments for decarbonisation have significantly increased following growing public pressure for companies to demonstrate greater environmental stewardship and social responsibility. One fifth of the world largest companies included in the Forbes Global 2000 list now have net zero commitments and more and more companies now include scope 3 related emissions in their climate strategies, which includes both upstream and downstream emissions of their value chains.

To achieve the PA’s goal, public authorities, companies and citizens will need to implement unprecedented, rapid and far-reaching systemic transitions and articulate their strategies and actions consistently.

In this context, the ACT-Assessment Low Carbon Transition with DDP-Deep Decarbonization Pathways (ACT-DDP) research project has been launched at the end of 2019 to build, illustrate and promote tools enabling a dialogue between private companies and governments for a mutual enrichment of their decarbonisation strategies. In Mexico, the work enabled to develop sectoral transition pathways for the national power production, cement production and urban passenger transport sector and assess about 10 company transition strategies among these 3 sub-sectors.

Objective of the national workshops

These final workshops on the same topic, aim to present the principal findings and results of this 2-year program and discuss it with a broad audience of associations, companies, academics and public authorities.
