The Mission Possible Partnership (MPP)
The Mission Possible Partnership was formed to supercharge efforts to decarbonize some of the world’s highest emitting industries in order to place them on a trajectory to net zero by 2050 aligned with a 1.5 degree scenario.
Our mission is to unlock a first wave of deep decarbonisation projects before 2025 and inspire a second wave of projects before 2030 across seven high-emitting sectors – aluminium, chemicals, concrete, steel, aviation, shipping, and trucking. We support the most ambitious industry leaders – the “doers” – by mobilizing their customers, their suppliers, their capital providers, and key policy makers to create the required operational and economic value chain conditions to unlock investment.
In 2023 and beyond, the Mission Possible Partnership is focused on scaling up key value chains in the hard to abate sectors by helping commercial scale infrastructure projects to Final Investment Decision (FID). To do this, it is establishing a series of value chain incubators to bring about the required operational and economic conditions to unlock investment. The Cement/CCUS (PM) will have a dual role of expert in the sequestration and utilization of carbon and expert in the cement sector.

Diversity & Inclusion
We believe that diversity and inclusion are at the heart of system change and the mission we have set ourselves. So we commit ourselves to:
- Embedding diverse and inclusive ways of working from day to day. This includes recruitment, performance management, and people processes and policies.
- Providing a supportive environment. We want people to be themselves and be at their best, regardless of their background, personality, gender, sexual orientation, race, mental health, religion, or other characteristics.
- Enabling a long-term, sustainable approach to work and life more generally. We want to support our people at all stages of their lives – as parents or caregivers, through changing life circumstances – and to accommodate personal priorities where they matter most.
