A Global Compact for Sustainable Energy: A Framework for Business Action
On the occasion of the Private Sector Forum 2011, the UN Global Compact launched its new report A Global Compact for Sustainable Energy: A Framework for Business Action. The Framework was developed in support of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s initiative Sustainable Energy For All aimed at mobilizing key constituencies from all sectors of society in a major global initiative intended to shape the fundamental policy and investment decisions needed to put countries on a more sustainable energy pathway over the next two decades.
The Framework aims to motivate and guide business engagement and action in support of the initiative. In keeping with the initiative’s 2030 targets, the Framework identifies how companies can have the most significant impact – through their core business operations as well as product and service development; through social investments and philanthropy; and through advocacy and public policy engagement.
