Asia Sustainability Conference 2024
Asia’s Pathway to Carbon Neutrality: Government and Corporate Leadership
The world is envisioning to reach carbon neutrality as early as 2030, with most Asian countries setting their net-zero targets to 2050 and China, one of the globe’s largest economies and carbon emitters, is targeting 2060. Amid these ambitious goals, Asia remains home to half of the top ten emitters globally and extremely vulnerable to climate change. To transit fast enough and mitigate the climate risk, China alone would need an extra US$6.5 trillion to finance its green efforts and 2060 target. The Post’s Asia Sustainability Conference plenary morning sessions aim to be a platform for regular policy review and debate, while assessing efforts and resources paying towards Asia’s carbon neutrality by both public and private sectors. In addition, during the afternoon sessions, the conference will deep dive into historically high-pollution industries (retail, supply chain, mobility and energy) which have made substantial progress towards carbon neutrality in recent years.
