According to the recent report of WWF, “Korea Ecological Footprint Report 2016”, Korea is the world’s 8th largest emitter of CO2, this draws attention to the country in the international attempts to tackle climate change. Carbon footprint being accounted for 73% of Korea’s ecological footprint (well above the global average) creates a huge challenge to a country which is striving to show it is a forward-looking nation seeking pathways to sustainability. Based on this issue raising, we would like to have time to discuss and figure out the powerful ways ? including energy transition ? for Korea to move towards sustainable development at Global Green Growth Week 2016.
