Are you passionate about developing innovative solutions to the climate crisis and supercharging industrial decarbonization? Are you interested in being a foundational member of a new organization? If yes, then join our growing team.


The Mission Possible Partnership (MPP) is a movement of climate leaders and companies driving industrial decarbonization across the entire value chain of the world's highest-emitting sectors: aluminum, cement, chemicals, steel, aviation, shipping, and trucking. MPP is charting the inventive steps and radical collaboration to enable commercial-scale First Projects in this decisive decade.


The Industrial Transition Accelerator (ITA) is a global multistakeholder initiative created to catalyse decarbonisation across the heavy emitting sectors. With expansive networks across industry, financial institutions, and governments, it brings together global leaders to unlock investment at scale, for the rapid deployment of decarbonisation solutions. Within three years, it aims to significantly grow the pipeline of commercial-scale, clean industrial projects to reduce emissions by 2030 and enable delivery of Paris Agreement-aligned ambition for heavy emitting industry and transport sectors.


Launched in December 2023 at the COP28 World Climate Action Summit, the ITA works in partnership with global institutions, global corporate and finance conveners, and sectoral industry groups among others to accelerate the decarbonisation of harder-to-abate, heavy emitting industry and transport sectors. The ITA's Secretariat is hosted by MPP, and you can find out more here:
