Electric Utility Alignment with the SDGs & the Paris Climate Agreement

Who’s behind it? – SDSN, Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment (CCSI)



How can it help? – CCSI and SDSN developed a conceptual framework to define SDG-aligned business practices in the energy sector, and in particular the utility sector composed of four pillars:

  1. Product: Is the utility a leader in zero-carbon electricity generation and is the utility on the path to reach zero carbon emissions by 2050 or earlier?
  2. Production process: Is the utility’s production process socially and environmentally sustainable?
  3. Value chain responsibility: Is the utility’s supply and value chain aligned with the SDGs and PCA?
  4. Citizenship: Is the utility a good corporate citizen?
