Asia Pacific Partnership on Clean Development and Climate (APP)

Asia Pacific Partnership on Clean Development and Climate (APP) was an international public-private partnership among Australia, Canada, India, Japan, China, South Korea and the United States launched in January 2006. The aim of the organization was to co-operate on the development and transfer of new technologies which enable GHG emission reductions. The intent of the partnership was to establish a voluntary platform of international cooperation for development, deployment, diffusion, transfer of existing and emerging long-term cost effective, clean, energy efficient technologies and practices among members through cooperation. APP member countries approved eight task forces working in following areas: Aluminum, Buildings and Appliances, Cement, Clean Fossil Energy, Coal Mining, Power Generation and Transmission, Renewable Energy and Distributed Generation, Steel Industry. 

APP is no longer active and was replaced by Global Superior Energy Performance Partnership (GSEP). Some of the APP task forces, including the cement task force, were carried over to the new GSEP initiative.
