Event Summary

Industrial activities cause roughly 30 percent greenhouse gas emissions and their share is growing. Many of these emissions are hard to abate with current technologies, which poses an urgent challenge—but also an enormous opportunity. A surge in clean manufacturing innovation could strengthen America’s competitive position in the world economy if appropriate policies are adopted.

ITIF hosted a discussion about a recently released report, in partnership with Boston University’s Institute for Sustainable Energy and the Fraunhofer USA Center for Manufacturing Innovation, outlining policy recommendations to integrate the U.S. manufacturing innovation and competitiveness agenda with emerging national climate policies.
