Working Group Established in February 2023

Following COP27, several emerging markets in Asia announced just energy transition plans to low carbon with the support of G20 economies. The AIGCC Energy Transition working group will examine the role of emerging markets in the energy transition movement.

NB: Whereas most working groups are set to meet on a quarterly basis, the Energy Transition Working Group (ETWG) is designed to meet on an ‘as-needed’ basis in order to meet time-sensitive requests and updates on topics related to the energy transition.

Launch Press Release 

Asia is home to some of the largest emerging markets globally. Countries in this region are required to balance development goals, climate transition plans, while also bearing the brunt of the physical impacts of climate change. Asian perspectives should continue to form one of the foundations in global climate action.
