西班牙7: Affordable and Clean Energy
The United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal 7 urges to ensure access to affordable, 可靠的, sustainable and modern energy for all.
We are leading the shift to clean energy that can power every 行业, 每个业务, 每一个社区, 每个家庭. We are doing so by providing renewable energy to millions of people around the world and using our 行业 know-how to constantly improve how renewable energy solutions are designed, 多元化的, 管理和扩展. Not only are we relieving society’s dependence on fossil fuels for our diverse energy needs, but we are making renewable alternatives increasingly accessible and affordable for more people, including those in rural communities and disadvantaged regions.
通过贡献于 西班牙7, we are leveraging key synergies with the goals for Decent Work and Economic Growth (西班牙8) and for Industrial 创新 and Infrastructure (西班牙9) by creating green jobs. 例如, our Allain Duhangan hydropower plant, situated in the mountains of Northern 印度, has created new jobs and stable incomes for women in the rural community, contributing positively towards the 8.5, 8.8, 9.1和9.2的目标. By displacing polluting sources of energy production, and thereby contributing to cleaner air quality and the reduction of pollution-related diseases, we are also leveraging the synergies pertaining to Good Health and Wellbeing (西班牙3).
As we drive progress on 西班牙7, we are aware that establishing and scaling energy infrastructure, 如果管理不当, may negatively impact the goals of Life on Land (西班牙15). We always seek to reduce these negative trade-offs. 例如, where hydropower operations have impacted river ecosystems in 挪威, we have successfully taken measures to strengthen salmon populations, contributing towards the 15.1和15.5个目标.
