Driving a just, local, and enabling transition
Green energy must work for the many, not the few. To succeed in building a world that runs entirely on green energy, we must lead an energy build-out that benefits people.
To date, global climate action has mainly focused on lowering carbon emissions and developing new green technologies. Yet, climate action also concerns people. It’s about empowering people to take part in shaping a greener tomorrow, and it’s about strengthening the resilience of local communities.
Towards 2030, the energy sector will need a much bigger workforce, supply chains will expand to more parts of the world, and renewable energy structures will become part of many local communities. Unless we drive a build-out that works for people, we won’t be able to source critical skills, accelerate the transformation through our supply chains, or create the shared benefits necessary to forge stronger, more resilient communities. Done right, the build-out of renewable energy can be a force for good, with the power to fundamentally reshape how our societies look and operate.
