How to Secure a Carbon-Free Future for Asia (with Alberto Méndez)

During the COVID-19 lockdowns we’ve had a glimpse of life with clear skies and clean air. That’s a world we can live in, but first we need to switch from coal and gas to renewables.

It’s a massive task, but an urgent one.

So how quickly can we bring about this transition – and who should take charge in leading it?

Alberto Méndez is CPO of the energy company Vattenfall, which is working to create a fossil-free world within the next generation. And in this exclusive interview, he breaks down the complex – but achievable – challenge of decarbonizing Asia’s infrastructure development and ultimately creating a carbon-free future for the region.

This is part of our Unmasked Interviews series – where we talk to experts in fields where COVID-19 has had a significant impact, and glean insights about the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
