How Canada can overcome its slower start and deliver low-carbon hydrogen to Northeast Asian consumers.
As countries around the world rebuild their infrastructure for sustainability, private investors are gravitating toward low-carbon hydrogen projects.
By moving early, banks can enjoy higher returns, capture key relationships across the value chain, and gain share in two growing markets.
Expanded use of low-carbon hydrogen and the fuels derived from it is critical to slowing global warming. Can we develop the renewable energy needed to make them?
For Europe to realize this goal, four technologies will require policy support and investment.
With the potential to create over 350,000 jobs, Nordic net zero is the largest opportunity individual businesses and the economy have seen for decades. It will require the Nordics to decarbonize smartly and invest approximately €860 billion, but immediate action puts the economic benefits within reach.

As you craft a decarbonization strategy—for today and tomorrow—here are seven crucial areas to consider.
Hydrogen is on the verge of becoming instrumental in the fight against climate change—and providing a $200 billion revenue opportunity for machinery makers.
