Chemicals in transition – The three pillars for transforming chemical value chains

Agora industry

This report, produced in collaboration with renowned German think tank Agora Industry, sets out a unified vision for a net-zero chemical industry in Germany. Carbon Minds provided in-depth data and impact modeling, engaging with a range of stakeholders to build alignment and clarity.

How our science-based roadmap guides you
to Net-Zero in chemical value chains

Step 1

Understanding the value chain

Using the comprehensive cm.chemicals database, we build a detailed model of the status quo of the chemical value chain. This includes scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions across your value chain.

Step 2

Aligning on net-zero pathways

Together, we build a holistic vision of your future net-zero journey. We do this by aligning with key stakeholders on technologies, resources, and costs of the net-zero pathways in individual and group meetings. This ensures support from all relevant stakeholders.

Step 3

Science-based modeling

Grounded in the latest scientific research, our models clarify the costs, resource consumption, and environmental impacts associated with each net-zero pathway. With a clearer view of your options, you can make informed decisions to achieve your sustainability targets.
