Hydrogen Task Force
About the Task Force
In the spirit of the Terra Carta’s objectives of creating sustainable industries, catalysing technology & innovation and specifically reducing emissions across industry, the Hydrogen Task Force seeks to drive growth in the demand for and supply of clean hydrogen through company and sectoral public commitments coupled with practical, demonstrable projects.
Action Acceleration Guide
The Sustainable Markets Initiative's Hydrogen Task Force has developed a guide to support sectors and businesses to better understand how they can incorporate hydrogen into their energy transition strategies.
Hydrogen Transport and Storage
The purpose of this report is to identify and discuss the complexities and hurdles to building a low-carbon hydrogen economy, examine technology leaders that are bridging the challenges and uncover technology that could catalyse the industry's progress.
The World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) and The Sustainable Markets Initiative gathered ambitious companies to drive growth in the demand for, and supply of, hydrogen - an essential part of the future net-zero energy system.
Pledges across three categories – demand, supply and financial or technical support – have been made by 35 companies representing different sectors from mining to energy, vehicle and equipment manufacturers, and financial services.
Hydrogen Policy and Regulatory Recommendations
The Hydrogen Task Force has developed policy and regulatory levers needed to accelerate adoption of hydrogen fuel cells specifically for transportation.
