SDG 7: sustainable and affordable energy

In 2015, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were established by the United Nations as a new global sustainable development agenda for 2030. Our projects contribute to a number of these SDGs, such as SDG 7: Sustainable and affordable energy.

One in five people currently does not have access to energy. But at the same time, energy is also one of the biggest problems of this century. The raw materials will eventually run out and the fuel will cause climate change. At least 60 percent of greenhouse gas emissions are caused by energy.

By 2030, everyone must have access to affordable, reliable and sustainable energy. To make modern and sustainable energy accessible in developing countries, we must work on better infrastructure and technological progress.

The aim of FairClimateFund’s climate projects is, in addition to CO2 reduction, to help people in developing countries move up the energy ladder. Through more efficient cooking methods, such as biogas installations and cleaner cooking stoves, the use of coal and wood is also reduced by up to 100%.
