Sustainable Energy Diplomacy

Sustainable Energy Diplomacy

Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL) is uniquely positioned at the intersection of 3 major policy spheres: energy, climate change and international development. We help global leaders understand and appreciate the linkages between these spheres by bridging partnerships and creating dialogue. Through our diplomatic efforts, we help decision-makers understand the far-reaching and cross-cutting benefits of sustainable energy…and the risks of being left behind.

Much of our sustainable energy diplomacy stems from our strong working relationships and partnerships with government, business leaders and the UN. We recognize that good policy and appropriate finance accelerate critical action on Sustainable Development Goal 7 (SDG7). So we support ambition on sustainable energy within the UN system and at other global goal setting and implementation fora.

Our CEO serves as the UN Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Sustainable Energy for All (SRSG), which creates opportunities for SEforALL to contribute to the UN agenda on energy. Members of SEforALL’s senior management team identify strategic speaking engagements and bilateral meetings to deliver key messages on the critical path to success in achieving SDG7.
