In 2015, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted by the United Nations as a new global sustainable development agenda for 2030. Our projects contribute to a number of these so-called SDGs, such as SDG 7: Affordable and clean energy.
One in five people has no access to energy at this time. But at the same time, energy is also one of the biggest problems of this century. Raw materials are running out and the fuel causes 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. In order to make modern and sustainable energy accessible in developing countries, we must also work on improving infrastructure and technological progress.
The goal of the climate projects of FairClimateFund is to let people in developing countries climb a step on the energy ladder in addition to CO2 reduction. Also, by using more efficient cooking methods, such as biogas installations and clean cookstoves, the use of coal and wood is reduced by up to 100%.
