The Global Alliance for Sustainable Energy was created to drive progress towards the full sustainability of the renewable energy industry.
Renewable energy sources are already the cleanest and most sustainable solutions available for power generation and, through the alliance, members commit to upholding innovation and sustainability as guiding principles.
By promoting sustainability across the entire value chain, the alliance will work to improve transparency, accountability, inclusivity, resource efficiency and responsibility throughout the renewable energy industry’s operations and supply chain.
Our goal is a just transition to net-zero and socially responsible energy production, achieving the ambition of The Paris Agreement to avoid the harshest impacts of climate change on people and the Planet.
We will focus our initial efforts on four key themes: net-zero & CO2 footprint; circular design & international guidelines; human rights; and water footprint.
The Global Alliance for Sustainable Energy is committed to the widespread adoption of best practices and the definition of sustainability standards across the renewable energy value chain, through education and partnerships.
As a global alliance, we seek to redefine the meaning of ‘sustainable energy’ by working together with civil society, end users, policymakers, academic institutions, materials suppliers, Original Equipment Manufacturers and likeminded utilities to interface with governments and investors.
We aim to align the global renewables sector with the ultimate goal of becoming a truly sustainable industry, defining concrete steps now in order to achieve net zero by 2050.
The activities and objectives of the Global Alliance are in line with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals:
