Across the Asia-Pacific region, companies in the energy and natural resources sectors are facing obstacles in their progress toward sustainability. Executives are under pressure from investors and customers to go green, while also powering the global economy with energy, materials, and food. Geopolitical tensions, diverse regulatory environments, inflation, and the lingering effects of Covid-19 on the supply chain make a difficult task more complex.
The shape of the energy transition in Asia-Pacific may seem unclear, but with that uncertainty comes a vast opportunity. Asia-Pacific has the resources to be a major global player in the energy transition; pair that with a number of innovative technologies and policies, and there is significant opportunity for value creation in the region.
