The Hinrich Foundation Sustainable Trade Index 2018

Yet the enthusiasm in Asia for trade does not appear to have waned. This broad societal consensus behind international trade has enabled Asian countries to continue broadening and deepening existing trading relationships, for example, by quickly hammering out a deal for the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) in early 2018 following the US’s withdrawal from its predecessor in 2017.

Using data to foster equitable and sustainable planning across communities

Sustainability is the collective product of how we live and interact with the environment within our own communities. Lower-income, marginalised communities and communities of colour are disproportionately affected by environmental hazards, degradation, injustice and a changing climate. They are more likely, for example, to breathe in polluted air, live near coal plants and toxic sites. 
 

Harnessing data for an equitable clean energy future

Data for equity in clean energy planning

The US stands at a pivotal moment to develop an equitable clean energy economy. The recent momentum towards achieving net zero emissions to combat climate change, combined with a growing availability of data and technology, can set it on a path to make right generations of racial and class discrimination in communities across the nation. 

Leading the charge? Both China and the US have a long way to go to become green exemplars to the world

The urgency of climate change has forced the world’s diplomats into a delicate dance, one in which the co-operation required to address this existential threat must be balanced against myriad points of disagreement in other fields. Nowhere is this more apparent than for the US and China, the world’s two biggest economies and the source of nearly half of all global emissions in 2019. As both countries make a serious effort to tackle their own emissions, questions are emerging about the extent to which either of the two superpowers will be able to assume a global leadership role in accelerating the transition to net-zero emissions. Will the US be able to show the global community that it can implement a coherent domestic climate policy that will endure? And, given its position at the centre of global green-energy supply chains, is China gaining clout in international climate diplomacy?

China's Cooling Imperative

Cooling is a major contributor to climate change, accounting for at least 9% of greenhouse gas emissions globally. China is the world’s largest producer of cooling equipment. 70% of the world’s air conditioners are made in and exported from China. China is also the world’s leading user of household cooling equipment, accounting for 22% of installed household air conditioning units and 18% of the world’s residential refrigerators.
