Bridging The Sustainability Gap

Thomas Baudlot, CEO Energy Solutions APAC & Southeast Asia Head, ENGIE

Bridging The Sustainability Gap

The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released the second part of its sixth assessment report on the state of the climate recently. The latest report has for the first time assessed the regional effect of climate change. According to the assessment, several big cities of the world are at risk. To add to the mix, the energy demand in Southeast Asia is expected to increase by 60% by 2040, in line with the region's rapid economic growth, led by increasing industrial activities, growing population, and rising incomes. Governments are putting in measures previously such as reducing carbon emissions across the region, but do these measures go far - and fast - enough? We speak with Thomas Baudlot, CEO Energy Solutions APAC & Southeast Asia Head of ENGIE about how organisations can adopt better green measures and sustainable business practices.
