Mission Possible Partnership


The Mission Possible Partnership (MPP) is an alliance of climate leaders focused on supercharging efforts to decarbonize some of the world’s highest-emitting industries in the next 10 years.

Concrete, steel, aluminium, and chemicals—as well as the ships, planes, and trucks that move them—are the building blocks of the global economy. But these seven sectors are currently responsible for 30 percent of greenhouse gas emissions, and that is projected to grow. MPP is working to change that.

Supported by an expanding network of nearly 300 partners across industry, finance and policy, MPP is empowering high-ambition sector initiatives in seven target sectors, together working towards one end goal: net-zero emissions.

As the MPP knowledge partner, McKinsey Sustainability brings over a decade of research, analytics tools and solutions, and a dedicated team of more than 30 partners and experts. Our collaboration with MPP will help to accelerate transitions in carbon-intensive sectors.

Aluminum decarbonization at a cost that makes sense

– Production of this important metal has a significant carbon footprint. The path toward greener aluminum will require the participation of multiple stakeholders.

Clean skies for tomorrow: Delivering on the global power-to-liquid ambition

As aviation shifts from fossil to sustainable fuels, power-to-liquid fuel could emerge as a critical pathway, with reductions in greenhouse gas emissions of up to 100 percent.

Decarbonizing the aviation sector: Making net zero aviation possible

Although the aviation sector is a significant source of emissions, it could potentially achieve net zero by 2050.

Net-zero steel in building and construction: The way forward

Rising demand for greener approaches creates an imperative for the industry to seize the moment, adopt new mindsets, and set standards for the transition to a greener future.

The Next Wave: Green Corridors

Green corridors are specific trade routes between major port hubs where zero-emission solutions are supported. A new report shows that accelerated decarbonization for the shipping industry is feasible, and could provide stakeholders with the confidence to invest, coordinate, and deliver solutions at scale by 2030.

Road Freight Zero: Pathways to faster adoption of zero-emission trucks

This report identifies three groups of solutions can act as accelerators for faster adoption: new policy frameworks, innovative financing and service models, and coordinated roll-out of trucks and infrastructure.

Critical insights on the path to a net-zero aviation sector

Dramatically reducing CO2 emissions by 2050 in the aviation industry will not be easy, but advanced modeling shows that it is possible—with the right ambition and investment.
