energy compacts

In the lead up to the High-level Dialogue on Energy in September 2021 and beyond, UN-Energy will support all stakeholders to develop and feature commitments in the form of “Energy Compacts”.

Energy Compacts are voluntary commitments and are open to Member States and non-state actors, such as companies, regional/local governments, NGOs, and others. These stakeholders commit to an Energy Compact that includes the specific actions they will take to support progress on SDG7. Since affordable, clean energy is a prerequisite for achieving all other SDGs and the Paris Agreement, actions defined in an Energy Compact can also contribute directly to Nationally Determined Contributions under the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Agenda’s Sustainable Development Goals beyond SDG7. Throughout the current Decade of Action, UN-Energy will continue to mobilize more Energy Compacts, raising their ambition, and tracking their progress.

For more information related to the Energy Compact process, see the six-steps. For detailed instructions on how to formally submit and register your Compact, see Submission Guidelines.
