Integrating Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) No. 7 for affordable clean energy into your business strategy will pay dividends for the goal and your company’s reputation.
Energy access is among the most critical necessities in the modern world in order to boost income, increase employment, and combat climate change.
Therefore, the Sustainable Development Goals aim to achieve Goal No.7 to “ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all”, is particularly paramount as according to the Energy Progress Report by the United Nations, 759 million people worldwide still lack access to electricity.
People spend a lot of time getting water, collecting fuel and supplies, and turning to cookstoves due to a lack of electricity. Furthermore, air pollution from the use of combustible fuels for home energy caused 4.3 million deaths in 2012, with women constituting the majority of the victims.
Powersystems provide our partners and customers with valuable and critical support as well as the technical know-how as you seek to enhance your organisations energy efficiency, economic performance and transition to clean energy.
Targets towards achieving SDG 7 for affordable, clean energy
The SDGs are universal, provide a holistic approach to future development and are intended to provide guidance to both public and private actors everywhere in the world.
For SDG 7, the UN has outlined five objectives. Several of these objectives are, in fact, the obligation of each countries national government to carry out. Nevertheless, even on a lower scale, your business can add value to SDG 7 to demonstrate its commitment to achieving sustainability.
- Access to modern energy for all
- Increase the global share of renewable energy
- Increase energy efficiency by twice as much
- Encourage clean energy access, technology, and investment
- Aid developing countries in broadening and enhancing their energy services whenever possible.
Your business role in affordable, clean energy transition
Your business can help boost the transition to sustainable energy systems by making an investment in renewable energy technology, research and development, optimising energy efficiency, and incorporating clean energy into your operations.
Private industry accounts for roughly two-thirds of global electricity demand, your business holds a vital role to ramp up the transition to sustainable energy systems.
You can go above and beyond our own procedures by investing in clean energy sources for your internal communities, ensuring that your workforce and consumers are granted access to renewable energy, and even supplying renewable technologies to developing nations.
As energy efficiency is evidently linked to business costs, businesses should make it a top priority. Thus, it is critical for businesses to expedite the transition to 100% renewable energy and cultivate long-term renewable strategies to advance renewable energy technology and lower costs.
