A moment of transition has arrived for SEA and the world. The multi-decade transformation to decarbonize the global economy has accelerated, with awareness building strongly in 2020 and the imperative for action becoming ever clearer and more urgent in 2021. Bain & Company’s partner and co-director of the Global Sustainability Innovation Center Dale Hardcastle joined CNBC’s Tanvir Gill and Rosanna Lockwood to talk about the new Southeast Asia’s Green Economy: Opportunities on the Road to Net Zero report launch in partnership with Microsoft and Temasek. USD 2 trillion infrastructure investments will be needed over the next decade to enable SEA’s sustainable transition and to close the region’s 3-4Gt gap to Paris-aligned emissions levels. Accelerating the energy transition, valuing nature, and transforming SEA’s agri-food system could address up to ~90% of the region’s emissions, while unlocking significant opportunities.
