The world is taking action on clean energy. Our trading partners, our neighbours and the world’s largest economies, the United States and China, are all moving to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.
There are a range of ways that countries around the world are reducing their greenhouse gas emissions, such as promoting energy efficiency, carbon pricing, carbon storage technologies, improved land management and switching to renewable energy sources.
One of the most important economic developments in the response to climate change is the increase in investment for cleaner energy sources. Global investment in renewable power and fuels increased by 17 per cent to USD$257 billion in 2011. This was more than six times the figure for 2004 and 94 per cent more than the total in 2007. In fact, the growth of investment in clean energy outpaces the growth of the global economy which is forecast to grow between 3.5 and 4 per cent.
