Fair Finance Asia study on Financing the Just Energy Transition in Asia
Fair Finance Asia (FFA), in collaboration with the Stockholm Environmental Institute (SEI), launched a new study, “Financing the Just Transition: Powering Asia’s Sustainable Energy Future.”
The study finds that Asia is experiencing an ‘energy addition’ rather than an energy ‘transition’ due to the slow uptake of climate and energy policies adopted by Asian policy makers, financial regulators, as well as banks, and investors in Asia and beyond.
The research also shows that the ‘justice’ element of Asia’s prospective energy transition (or ‘addition,’ as argued above) is still wanting and comes as an after-thought to policy measures from national climate and energy policies.
