09:00 - 10:30 Green Energy: Public-Private Partnership

(Dong Yu Grand Ballroom A, Level 1, ICC)

Asia's unprecedented economic growth is unsustainable in the long term unless steps are taken to increase energy security and energy efficiency, provide viable alternative energy sources, and reduce environmental damage more broadly across the region. When will Asia as a region reach the same stage as the U.S. and Europe in terms of environmental awareness and what will it take? The management of energy costs and reliance are going to be a major factor in companies' financial performance and impact on shareholder value. What is the feasible role of green energy use and how can companies develop, promote and sustain the use of green energy? Furthermore, what role will the partnership of government and business play in this regard and how?

While there is a positive correlation between increased penetration of mobile phones and economic growth, there is a negative correlation between materials currently used to produce mobile phones and their accessories, and a green Asia. So what is the potential for the mobile telecommunications sector to contribute to sustainable development with new designs, materials, production and disposal methods?
