How RMI Works across the Fossil Fuels Value Chain to Rapidly Reduce Emissions

At RMI, we recognize that, to avert the worst consequences of the climate crisis, we must cut greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030 and achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.

To achieve these goals, the world must reduce emissions on multiple fronts at once. Thus, even as we work to improve the efficiency of energy use and rapidly scale emissions-free energy solutions, we are also working to immediately cut climate pollution from across fossil fuels' complex current lifespan.

The diagram below illuminates the breadth of our work across this value chain, from cutting methane leakage at wells upstream to deploying low-carbon solutions downstream, in industry, transport, and appliances.
