ENSURE ACCESS TO AFFORDABLE, RELIABLE, SUSTAINABLE AND MODERN ENERGY SERVICES FOR ALL

Approximately three billion people currently lack access to clean fuels for cooking, exposing them to dangerous levels of air pollution.

Adopting cost-effective standards for a wider range of technologies could reduce the global electricity consumption in buildings and industry by 14 per cent.
