December 3, 2007 (UN.org) – WE have read the science. Global warming is real, and we are a prime cause. We have heard the warnings. Unless we act, now, we face serious consequences. Polar ice may melt. Sea levels will rise. A third of our plant and animal species could vanish. There will be famine around the world, particularly in Africa and Central Asia.

Welcome

Welcome to the first post of Asia Cleantech, a new blog focused on the clean technology (cleantech) sector in the region. The blog will cover interesting cleantech concepts and news that are relevant to the sector here in Asia.

Cleantech is a very broad asset class and encompasses a wide range of products and services “that improve operational performance, productivity, or efficiency while reducing costs, inputs, energy consumption, waste, or pollution(1).” To keep things simpler, the blog will focus primarily on:

  • Renewable energy
  • Energy efficiency
  • Recycling
  • Waste management
  • Emissions reduction, pollution control

Over time, the blog will include posts from a variety of cleantech related experts. All comments are very much welcome.
