Abstract

Energy consumption is the largest contributing factor for the increase of CO2 emissions and
amounts for almost 85% of all emissions. The future energy consumption of Korea is projected
to grow exponentially despite its heavy dependence on imported energy that represents
97% of its total energy supply. According to a recent OECD report the carbon emission level
of Korea is currently ranked 9th in CO2 emissions, and is growing by almost 3% every year.
Against this background, the Korean government introduced the “low carbon green growth”
policy in 2008. As the global challenges intensified in the wake of the world economic crisis,
Korea has been working hard in raising the visibility of its efforts at the club governance
meetings, in particular the G-20 summit. Because of cooperative efforts with major member
countries, the G-20 summit agenda has been significantly diversified to include long-term
issues such as climate change, development issues, and global health. To achieve an effective
green recovery for a new green world economic order, the G-20 summit leaders should concentrate
on a strategy of establishing green governance for a global STI cooperation. Korea
as the host country is poised to leverage the Seoul G-20 summit to catalyze global efforts toward
a new green economic order.
