Nollutsläpp i basindustrin –förutsättningar för en ny industripolitik

Forskarna i GIST-projektet har gemensamt skrivit rapporten “Nollutsläpp i basindustrin –förutsättningar för en ny industripolitik” där man mot bakgrund av den historiska utvecklingen i basindustrin argumenterar för att det behövs en ny politik för industriell utveckling för att hantera basindustrins klimatutmaningar.

Rapporten kan laddas ner här i högupplöst och lågupplöst format.

Utifrån rapporten har fyra av forskarna dessutom skrivit en debattartikel i Dagens Industri.
