The issue of climate policy engagement is on the cutting edge of climate and sustainability for the corporate sector, with investors increasingly requiring companies to adopt climate policy positions in line with the goals of the Paris Agreement. With the South Korean government set to announce its National Carbon Neutral Green Growth Basic Plan by the end of March, how can companies in Korea work to further effective climate policy?
InfluenceMap is a global think tank that provides independent, data-driven analysis on how the world's largest companies and their industry associations are influencing climate policy for transitioning the global economy towards zero emissions. In this session, InfluenceMap will present its analysis on how the corporate sector is engaging with flagship South Korean climate policies including the Korea Emissions Trading Scheme (K-ETS), the 2030 GHG emissions target, and policies and standards affecting key sectors such as steel, automotive and petrochemicals.
The presentation will include insights on:
· Tracking corporate climate policy advocacy in South Korea, using InfluenceMap's global database
· Outlook for South Korean key climate policies in 2023 and response from key sectors (steel, automotive, petrochemical, oil & gas, power generation, ICT)
· Policy advocacy opportunities for European companies in South Korea
