Committee on Sustainable Energy


The Committee on Sustainable Energy is an intergovernmental body that provides member States with a platform for international dialogue and cooperation. It is mandated to carry out a programme of work in the field of sustainable energy with a view to providing access to affordable and clean energy to all, in line with the “Sustainable Energy for All” initiative of the Secretary-General, and to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the carbon footprint of the energy sector.

An open-ended consultation offered on 16 May 2019 will feature inputs from the six subsidiary bodies of the Committee to the "Pathways to Sustainable Energy"project. Read more
