U.S.-Korea Technology Cooperation for Climate Change Mitigation

The Path to Net-Zero

The United States and the Republic of Korea have a rich history of partnering on cutting-edge initiatives, from designing smart cities to incorporating nuclear power into each country’s net-zero future. Both nations have also made concerted efforts to promote climate action outside their borders, which are exemplified in the U.S. Indo-Pacific Strategy and the South Korean New Southern Policy, to better incorporate shared climate change and energy security goals in developing Asian economies. As part of their domestic environmental strategies, the United States and the Republic of Korea both seek to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, which presents immense opportunities for further collaboration through research, investment, and knowledge sharing.
