As Korea has joined other countries to voluntarily submit its goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions up to 37% of BAU til 2030, it became more important that public and private sectors in Korea should make a joint effort in designing a grand strategy for low carbon-based national energy supply system.
On September 28, Mr Dimitris Psillakis, Chairman of the ECCK and CEO & President of Mercedes-Benz Korea, attended Seoul Climate & Energy Summit (CESS) co-hosted by Climate Change Center Korea and eToday Media. Under the theme of ‘Energy Transition Strategies in the New Climate Economy’, the event covered topics ranging from ‘Risk and Opportunity in the New Climate Economy’, ‘Energy Transition Strategies in the New Climate Change Regime’ to ‘ Carbon Trading in the International Market Mechanism’.
