What is the Climate Group Asia Action Summit?

We convened our powerful networks in the fastest growing economic region on earth to ask: how can Asia become the green economic powerhouse of the future?

We focused on two of the region’s biggest decarbonisation opportunities: the industrial and clean energy transitions.  

We united regional leaders from across our Under2 Coalition and business members affiliated with our renewable energy and green steel initiatives. They gathered to meaningfully engage on challenges, discuss opportunities for collaboration and identify the pathways for bolder climate action in the industry and energy systems.
