Leading Renewables Players Urge Governments to Align Recovery Measures with Paris Agreement
With the Paris Agreement celebrating its fifth anniversary this week, all eyes are on the world’s governments to urgently scale-up climate action. Six months after calling for action
in response to COVID-19, the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) Coalition for Action
urges governments worldwide to step-up their efforts towards a green recovery. In a renewed call to action, over 100 leading renewable energy players, as members of the IRENA Coalition for Action, urge governments to correct course and reset their recovery priorities through six concrete actions. By placing a renewables-based energy transition at the heart of an economic recovery from COVID-19, governments can bring economic resilience and secure a climate-safe future.
About IRENA Coalition for Action
In January 2014, the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and 35 players in renewable energy from around the world jointly established a Coalition for Action to promote the wider and faster uptake of renewable energy technologies.
The IRENA Coalition for Action forms a key international network to discuss industry trends, determine actions, share knowledge and exchange best practices with the vision to drive the global energy transition in line with the Sustainable Development Goal on energy. Its mission is to convene a global dialogue amongst non-governmental and governmental stakeholders to develop actions to increasing the share of renewables in the global energy mix.
Today, the Coalition brings together over 100 leading renewable energy players including private sector companies, industry associations, civil society, research institutes and intergovernmental organisations.
IRENA acts as the Secretariat of the Coalition.
