Asia Critical to Future of Climate Change

Manila, Philippines [Asia Corporate News Network] No region in the world is as critical to future climate change as Asia, Asian Development Bank (ADB) President Haruhiko Kuroda told the opening of ADB’s Clean Energy Week. … In the 30 years to 2003, he pointed out, Asia’s energy consumption grew by 230%, compared with the average worldwide increase of 75%. As a result, the share of the region’s greenhouse gas emissions has risen from less than one-tenth of global emissions to nearly one quarter. Meanwhile, the rocketing of the price of oil to almost $80 a barrel has elevated the need for energy conservation and efficiency, and the use of renewable energy as key priorities for the region.
