The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) is an intergovernmental organisation that supports countries in their transition to a sustainable energy future, and serves as the principal platform for international cooperation, a centre of excellence, and a repository of policy, technology, resource and financial knowledge on renewable energy. IRENA promotes the widespread adoption and sustainable use of all forms of renewable energy, including bioenergy, geothermal, hydropower, ocean, solar and wind energy in the pursuit of sustainable development, energy access, energy security and low-carbon economic growth and prosperity.
With a mandate from countries around the world, IRENA encourages governments to adopt enabling policies for renewable energy investments, provides practical tools and policy advice to accelerate renewable energy deployment, and facilitates knowledge sharing and technology transfer to provide clean, sustainable energy for the world’s growing population.
The United Nations Global Compact is a voluntary multi stakeholder platform which convenes multinational companies to align against ten principles covering environment, anti-corruption, human rights and labour standards. Through the Global Compact, signatories share best practice in order to become better, more sustainable organisations. As a participant of the UN Global Compact, we support the 10 principles of the Global Compact and are committed to making them part of the strategy, culture and day-to day operations of AMEA Power.
