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.

In focus

28th Session of the Committee on Sustainable Energy

The 2-degree Celsius commitment requires decarbonization in all economic sectors and of all potent greenhouse gases. This session allows to exchange views about some of the consequences of the ongoing energy transition for the UNECE region and how to accelerate further and deepen the transition to sustainable energy systems based on the inputs from its six subsidiary bodies.

The results from a preceding workshop on the "understanding of natural gas in achieving the 2030 Agenda" will inform discussions.
