    In a few short years, Black Friday and Cyber Monday have been ingrained in the European retail calendar with outlets publicising their deals days or even weeks in advance. Gone are the days of hordes of consumers queuing outside shopping centres at 4am in a desperate bid to have their first pick of the sales with only a quarter of all Black Friday spending expected to take place in stores1.

    The push to reduce carbon emissions is well underway. But to meet the 2030 target set out at the 2015 Paris Agreement, technological innovation is needed. Here we explain how Advanced Metallurgical Group is playing its part in enabling a low carbon future. In 2015, national governments, private sector companies and local authorities across the world pledged to reduce carbon emissions as part of the Paris Climate Agreement. And although progress has been made – CO2 emissions have remained stable since 2014[footnote]“The Emissions Gap Report 2017,” published by UN Environment in November 2017.[/footnote] – there is still a long way to go. According to the United Nations, adopting new technologies in key sectors, such as energy, agriculture, industry, transport, buildings and forestry, could reduce emissions by up to 36 gigatonnes per year by 2030 “The Emissions Gap Report 2017,” published by UN Environment in November 2017. Our current holding Advanced Metallurgical Group (AMG) produces critical components for technologies that tackle CO2 reduction.
