Costs and potentials of greenhouse gas abatement in Germany

Together with the German Industry Association (Bundesverband der Deutschen Industrie—BDI), McKinsey's German office developed a view on costs and potentials of greenhouse gas abatement in Germany until 2020/2030. More than 70 companies and associations were involved in assessing the different abatement levers. In sum, abatement of 30 percent (compared to 1990) seems feasible.
