Due to the recent COVID-19 incident, EuroCham has decided to reschedule our Breakfast Talk on "How can European Brands Meet RE100 and Other Global Climate Goals in Cambodia?" to 11 December 2020 at Hotel Cambodiana.
As consumers increasingly demand environmentally-friendly initiatives, many European companies start to implement climate change and renewable energy targets, such as RE100. These targets; however, are pushed along their supply chains, making the source of electricity for factories in countries like Cambodia under pressure. Recent approvals of large coal projects to supply Cambodia’s electricity has meant significant carbonization of the electricity grid, making it harder for these brands to meet renewable energy and carbon targets. Meanwhile, neighbouring countries are offering more attractive options to meet, such as FiT, rooftop solar support and Direct Corporate Agreements.
This breakfast talk brings together Brands in Cambodia with RE100 and similar targets to address common challenges, practicalities and opportunities to meet these global climate goals in Cambodia.
