The Board of Directors of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) yesterday expressed its support for the Bank’s Sustainable Energy for Asia Strategy to help its members transition toward a low-carbon future. The strategy sets out a clear framework for the Bank to invest in energy projects that will increase access to clean, safe and reliable electricity for millions of people in Asia. To implement the strategy, the Bank will support its members to do their part as expressed in the Paris Agreement to, "hold the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre industrial levels and pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5 degrees Celsius". It will achieve this by aligning its support with its members’ national energy investment plans, including their nationally determined contributions (NDC) under the Paris Agreement. Currently over one billion people across Asia do not have access to secure and clean electricity to run their homes and businesses. By improving the reliability, reach and efficiency of energy in the region, millions of people will benefit from a higher standard of living and better health.
