CMI’s strength lies in our member interactions, spanning knowledge sharing, commercial interaction and capacity building activities.

CMI brings together corporate members with key government and industry representatives, highlighting through discussion the solutions needed to manage the risks and take advantage of opportunities in the transition to a net-zero emissions economy. We convene working groups across four thematic areas, and task forces across three. You can find full details about the working groups and taskforces in the sections below (this content is for CMI members only).
