With the launch of the new climate regime this year, global efforts toward zero carbon emissions have begun in earnest. The U.S. reaffirmed its commitment to global climate action by returning to the Paris Agreement, while the EU proposed a carbon border adjustment mechanism. Korea also announced its plan to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. In this week’s edition of Foreign Correspondents, we sit down with our panel of journalists to shed light on the implications of proposed carbon tariffs on the Korean industry and discuss the challenges facing countries around the world as they work toward becoming carbon neutral.
