UN Private Sector Forum on Sustainable Energy for All

The UN Private Sector Forum 2011 will focus on the role of the private sector in supporting the Secretary-General’s strategy on Sustainable Energy for All. This strategy will engage Governments, the private sector, and civil society partners to achieve three major goals by 2030:

  1. Achieving universal access to modern energy services.
  2. Improving energy efficiency.
  3. Producing 30 per cent of the world’s energy from renewable resources.

Hosted by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, the Private Sector Forum will feature high-level roundtable discussions among business, Government, civil society and UN leaders. It is designed to maximize interaction, increase understanding of efforts underway and generate a range of commitments to action around the Sustainable Energy for All goals.

The UN Private Sector Forum on Sustainable Energy for All is coordinated by the UN Global Compact in collaboration with the UNIDO/UN Energy. The Organizing Committee includes the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), and the UN Foundation.

Speakers: Turkish prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, Unilever CEO Paul Polman, former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
