sharing in governance of extractive industries
Given the urgency and scale with which renewables must be deployed to meet the world’s sustainable development and climate goals, it is critical that renewable energy companies understand their potential impacts—both positive and negative—on economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable development. For that reason, the Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment, along with the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network, Equitable Origin, and the Business & Human Rights Resource Centre, has launched the consultative draft of “Mapping the Renewable Energy Sector to the Sustainable Development Goals: An Atlas.” The new report explores how renewable energy companies can strengthen their contributions to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and respect human rights. In doing so, companies also stand to minimize risk and build support for a sustainable transition to a low-carbon economy. The authors welcome feedback through April 15th.
