McKinsey & Company’s GHG abatement cost curve tool provides information on the abatement potential, cost and required investment of over 200 mitigation options with the possibility of various levels of granularity. The cost curve presents the technical potential of emissions abatement per specific mitigation option and the associated cost per tCO2e saved, taking into account the required up-front investments and associated operating costs of each option. A national or regional cost curve is developed in a project with McKinsey with the involvement of a high number of local stakeholders and experts. Each project includes substantial awareness raising and capacity building on mitigation. McKinsey’s Climate Desk is a web-based subscription service for the global GHG abatement cost curve. Over 100 academics and other experts have been granted a free license to the tool.
