How to Achieve UN Sustainable Development Goals and Targets [Part II]

The following years will have to make up for the lack of significant progress in the implementation of the SDG goals and targets since their introduction in 2015. The key to succeeding is in collaboration and striking a harmonious balance involving governments, companies, stakeholders and society.

SDG Targets: Collaboration is the Key to Asia’s Energy Transition [Part I]

The successful implementation of the SDG targets is a universal goal. The lack of progress globally presents Asia with the unique opportunity to emerge as the much-needed leader to sustainable development. To do that, it should prioritise collaboration and partnerships.

South Korea’s Industrial Giants Respond to Government’s Net-Zero Goals

South Korea aims to achieve net-zero by 2050. The key to succeeding lies in enabling its world-leading industry to decarbonise at scale. While some companies are already making progress on that front, others hesitate. But the time for this is long gone.

Geopolitics and the Importance of the Energy Policy Environment for the Net-Zero Transition

The increasing demand for renewable energy and green technologies in the upcoming years will be detrimental to the developments on the global geopolitical stage. To avoid the mistakes of the oil era, this time the focus should be on cooperation.

The Blueprint for Greener Companies: Re-skilling

The success of the global net-zero transition will depend on a single factor - the human capital. In the wake of a skills gap and growing clean energy job market, in the years ahead, the focus will be on upskilling, reskilling and adapting the transferrable skills from other industries.

Reshaping the Renewable Energy Policy Environment Across Asia

Favourable climate-aligned policies and regulations can be the key to unlocking the net-zero transition across Asia - the region in the biggest need of decarbonisation. While the process won't happen overnight, it is important to lay the foundation today.

Enabling a Fair and Just Energy Transition in Asia

Enabling a fair and just energy transition in Asia can't happen overnight as it will require collective efforts from governments, fossil fuel companies and stakeholders. While the journey will, indeed, be long and challenging, the most important thing, for now, is to make the first step. There are lots of examples to learn from already. The rest is a question of priorities.

Asia’s Role in Defining the Pace of Renewable Energy Transition

The talk about the renewable energy transition often revolves only around the need for new clean energy capacity to replace the existing global fossil fuel fleet. If the world is to maximize the results of its net-zero aspirations, the scope of the renewable energy transition dialogue and action should widen to also include critical aspects like the need for better policies, equal electricity access, reskilling, and more.

What the Future Holds for the Renewable Energy Industry in Asia

Asia is responsible for over 45% of the world’s CO2 emissions. The region counts 93 of the 100 world’s most polluted cities. As home to over 50% of the world’s population and 60% of the largest cities, Asia will also soon face a rapidly increasing energy demand. The way the continent will face it will be detrimental to the global net-zero efforts.

Why Asia’s Transition to Sustainable Energy is Critical

Over the past decade, the renewable energy progress across Asia has started to pick up pace. However, due to how important the continent is for the global decarbonisation efforts, the world doesn't only need Asia to progress. The world needs it to lead the sustainable energy future.

Asia’s Pathway to a Sustainable Future

As the biggest energy consumer and leading CO2 emitter, Asia is the continent in the biggest need of tangible and collective action in the fight for a net-zero future. While the progress hasn't been on par with the EU and the US so far, experts are unequivocal - Asia is the continent that will experience the biggest renewable energy boom in the upcoming decades. For financiers, this means unrivalled opportunities.

The 7 Guiding Principles for Clean Hydrogen Energy Deployment

The hydrogen industry has long been reliant on fossil fuels. However, things are starting to change. Several companies are already making progress in clean hydrogen project and technology development. The introduction of the seven guiding principles, alongside the decreasing costs, marks the start of a new era that will allow governments and organizations to capitalize on green hydrogen's potential to streamline their decarbonization efforts.

Energy Transition: A Dilemma for Oil and Gas Sector

Asia will account for an estimated share of 43% of the global energy demand by 2040. Whilst fossil fuel projects are under pressure owing to climate commitments, renewables are not yet fully developed. Will the Asian countries bank upon oil and gas to fulfill the future energy demand?

Why Clean Cooking Is Not Always Climate Friendly

From a climate perspective clean cooking technologies that are currently being pushed are not always climate friendly with a reliance on LPG.
