Vision of AGGPM

The core concept of energy transitions, and measures to achieve green growth through energy transitions in Asia, where energy demand is expected to grow with economic growth, will be discussed in the AGGPM meetings. In particular, the meetings share the idea that there is no single pathway to achieve carbon neutrality, but rather there are various paths for each country.

1 Draw own pathways of Asian nations
for the Paris Agreement's goals

  • Green growth
    as a common goal
  • Various pathways
    to the common target
  • Overcoming challenges
    through partnerships

2 Promote "Energy Transitions"
that balance the economy and the environment

  • Balance of 3E (Energy Security, Economic Efficiency, Environment)
  • Providing engagement that
    leaves no country behind
  • Support and
    dissemination of innovation
