The Working Group III of the Sixth Assessment Report (AR6) of IPCC conducted a comprehensive assessment of the low-carbon transition in global industry, including the status quo of carbon emissions, mitigation pathway, technology and policies, etc. Industry is the sector with fastest growth in carbon emissions since 2000. To achieve net zero CO2 emissions from the industrial sector is possible but challenging. It is needed to keep promoting energy efficiency and also deploying multiple available and emerging options on material efficiency, electrification and fuel switching, CO2 capture, utilization and storage (CCUS), etc. The conclusions of the report could be helpful for industry’s low-carbon transition in China.

Key words: IPCC AR6, Industry, Mitigation, Carbon neutrality
