Background

In 2021, the United Nations together with a broad coalition of partners puts a premium on Sustainable Development Goal 7 — "Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy for all." This year, energy issues have a special place on the UN agenda as in September 2021 it will convene the High-Level Dialogue on Energy which will unite all state and non-state stakeholders to consolidate their efforts in achieving the 2030 Agenda, in particular SDG7, along with targeting net-zero emissions by 2050.

In preparations for the High-Level Dialogue on Energy and pursing to accelerate action for achieving the 2030 Agenda, UN-Energy & Sustainable Energy for All call for joint efforts by introducing Energy Compacts: voluntary multi-stakeholder commitments & actions in order to achieve SDG7 & the climate goals stipulated in the Paris Agreement.



The Energy Compacts themes coincide with the titles of five HLDE’s Technical Working Groups, namely Energy Access; Energy Transition; Enabling SDGs through Inclusive, Just Transition; Innovation, Technology & Data; Finance & Investment.

As one of major and responsible grouping actors on the global energy landscape, the BRICS countries are deeply engaged in implementing the Agenda 2030 to ensure the sustainable future for the generations to come, especially when it concerns such crucial topics as energy & climate.

BRICS countries are consistently acting as strong proponents of the Agenda 2030 and are committed to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals. As one of key players on the international energy landscape, BRICS countries are deeply engaged in multilateral energy fora to ensure their vision and proposals are recognized and considered, especially regarding such a crucial field as energy. Four our of five BRICS states have been nominated Global Champions for the High-Level Dialogue on Energy 2021.
