Flipping the Switch
As G7 leaders gather for this year’s meeting in Germany, we offer three critical areas for action.
The turbulence in global energy arises from an energy system shaped by countless choices made by governments and in the private sector for many years. But the fact is that we can make different choices for our future. It is within our power to rebuild the global energy system and economy in a way that works for Nature, people and the planet, and avoids burdening the most vulnerable in society.
Restoring our planetary, human and economic health is vital, as is adapting to those impacts that cannot be avoided. This is going to require trillions of dollars, much of which can be met by the private sector. We call on governments to put in place the market signals that will stimulate and channel this investment.
