Organisational structure The Low Carbon Technology Partnerships initiative (LCTPi) is comprised of over 160 companies and 70 partners who are committed to accelerating the transition to a low-carbon economy.

Led by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) and supported by We Mean Business partners, LCTPi offers a collaborative platform for businesses and policymakers to scale up deployment of business solutions to a level and speed that are consistent with limiting global warming to below 2°C. Taken together, LCTPi efforts could deliver 65% of the emissions reductions needed to remain under the 2°C limit while channeling $5-10 trillion of investment toward low carbon sectors of the economy and support 20-45 million person-years of employment.

Goals The Low Carbon Technology Partnerships initiative (LCTPi) aims to accelerate the development of low-carbon technology solutions to stay below the 2°C ceiling.

The LCTPi methodology has been applied by the eight active working groups and includes the following steps:

Quantifying the emissions reduction potential for the sector which sets the working group’s ambition; Assessment of the barriers to achieve that ambition; Identification of solutions to overcome those barriers; Development of action plans against which groups will focus their efforts; Setting a monitoring framework with annual and longer term performance indicators; and Preparing an annual progress report that includes outcomes and deliverables.
