Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all
Energy is central to nearly every major challenge and opportunity the world faces today. Access for all to affordable, reliable, renewable and clean energy is essential for sustainable development.
This SDG has several 2030 targets to which every company can contribute. These targets aim to ensure universal access to affordable, reliable and modern energy services; substantially increase the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix; double the rate of energy efficiency; and facilitate access to and promote investment in clean energy research, technology and infrastructure.
