Current Engagements include:
F20 Platform: Foundations link up to act on climate change
The F20 Foundations Platform is an alliance of over 40 foundations that have joined forces in order to further shape the political discourse on future sustainability measures. At the July 2017 G20 Summit in Hamburg, the Platform called for common and transnational action towards a zero-carbon economy and the successful implementation of the 2030 Agenda. In addition, the Foundation’s Platform aims to highlight the strong role civil society is playing in this transformation. Shakti Sustainable Energy Foundation is a member of the F20 Platform Steering Group.
A few days before the 2017 G20 Summit in Hamburg, the F20 platform hosted a high-level event where the F20 participants presented a joint report titled, Renewable Energy, Climate Action and Resilient Societies: Accelerating the Global and Local Paradigm Shift, to the German Government and the G20-Presidency. This report presents the emerging transition towards efficient and renewable energy systems at the global level and in specific G20 nations.
Business and Climate Summit 2017
Shakti was a core partner of the 2017 Business and Climate Summit, the annual gathering of leading global businesses and policy makers on climate action, held on August 31st-Sept 1st, 2017 in New Delhi. Hosted by the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI), the summit showcased business leadership in addressing climate change and highlighted how business and governments can work together to achieve climate objectives.
The summit was marked by the presence of several high-profile speakers—comprising CEOs of top companies, high-level representatives of governments, international agencies and global climate-related organizations—with participation from over 15 countries across various sectors. Ahead of the UNFCCC’s COP23 meetings, participants amplified the key policy messages needed to meet the goals set under the Paris Agreement. With business recognized as being crucial to meet global climate goals, several global and Indian business leaders shared how their companies were driving the transition to a low-carbon future.
