The US withdrawal from Paris Agreement won't halt rise of renewables in Asia Pacific

Report summary

Asia Pacific has already seen the onset of a low-carbon transition, though the pace of change varies widely. President Trump’s announcement to leave the Paris Agreement won’t fundamentally reverse the mainstream rationale of environmental sustainability. Major Asian emitters have stated their continued support to abide by the agreement. Meanwhile, the proposed US exit from the Paris Agreement will not halt the growing trend towards Chinese financing of Asian clean energy projects, and the search for markets in which to place excess renewable capacity.
