How Greentech is the solution to climate change
- Climate change is an imminent and pervasive issue in the modern world
- 45 per cent of global investment in the transition to cleaner power is found within Asia, and the priorities are clear: a low-carbon future, Greentech adoption, and clean energy
Hosted by South China Morning Post, Asia Sustainability Conference returns in 2021 with this session moderated by Andrew Chang, Program Director for New Energy Nexus China.
Climate change is an imminent and pervasive issue in the modern world. The transition to green technology can help the environment heal and pave the way to a future of sustainability. 45 per cent of global investment in the transition to cleaner power is found within Asia, and the priorities are clear: a low-carbon future, Greentech adoption, and clean energy.
The question is, what actions are truly going to lead to a quantum change across all of society? Austin R. Bryan, Senior Director of Innovation at CLP Holdings Limited, suggests we “stop talking about an aspiration,” and instead “have a plan for actionable leadership around sustainability.” In other words, companies need to take action - as opposed to just ‘thinking’ about changes that will help the environment. Businesses need to make it clear to their customers and their employees how decarbonisation and sustainable digitalisation is essential to the plan of the future.
According to Bryan, technology advancements and software solutions will be the most important in the fields of distributed energy, renewable energy and storage, building energy management, and the transportation sector. As Reinhart says, “the time for action is now,” and these Greentech implementations must happen soon to mitigate the pressing threat of climate change.
