The International Energy Charter, participates in the G20 Energy Sustainability Working Group discussions
The International Energy Charter, represented by Sarah Keay-Bright, participated in the G20 Energy Sustainability Working Group (ESWG) and the G20 Sustainability Working Group (SWG) discussions, held on 22-23 March 2017, in Berlin. Discussions centred around the development of an action plan on climate and energy for growth. The German Presidency of the G20 led the discussions with the objective of achieving agreement on areas for G20 cooperation and action in relation to accelerating the energy transition in ways that are cost-efficient while supporting objectives such as energy security, innovation, competitiveness, environmental protection, economic growth and job creation. Discussions paid particular attention to the development and implementation of investment frameworks that could deliver these objectives, including implementation of nationally determined contributions associated with the UNFCCC Paris Agreement and the United Nations (UN) 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.
