Submission Guidelines


Energy Compacts are an inclusive and continuous process towards 2030, open to all stakeholders including Governments, sub-national governments, private sector companies, financial institutions, UN agencies and civil society organizations. Cross-sectoral thematic Energy Compacts with multiple partners are also welcome. All stakeholders are encouraged to develop and submit Energy Compacts at any time throughout the decade of action to achieve the SDGs, aligned to the 2030 Agenda and the Paris Agreement on climate change.

The historical High Level Energy Dialogue in September 2021 marked the beginning of this decade-long process and presented the first set of ambitious Energy Compacts from across all stakeholder groups. All Energy Compact proponents are hereby encouraged to seize the opportunity to submit an Energy Compact and join the global movement.
