Fostering Effective Energy Transition 2022

This special edition report on global energy transition builds on the trends from the Energy Transition Index to provide perspective on the current challenges and recommendations on how to navigate the transition through a turbulent macroeconomic and geopolitical environment. A series of compounded shocks pose short-term risks to energy affordability, sustainability, and energy security. However, the window to prevent the worst consequences of climate change is closing fast, and the transition must be supercharged by ramping up clean energy investments, raising policy ambitions, and transforming consumer and industrial energy consumption. Strengthening energy security is paramount, dual diversification – in import partners in the short-term, and in fuel mix in the long-term – can improve resilience.Download the full report to read more

Our Impact

Our Initiatives

Low-Carbon Emitting Technologies Initiative (LCET)

This initiative aims to accelerate low-carbon-emitting technologies for chemical production, and achieve a marked reduction in the industry’s greenhouse gas emissions.

Net Zero Carbon Cities

This program is focused on helping national and city leaders meet their emissions-reduction targets by creating an efficient, electric, and circular urban energy landscape.


Crowdsource Innovation


Our project is aimed at the energy transformation of slaughterhouse waste, green waste, household waste, and invasive aquatic plants.

Climate Vault

We help reduce carbon footprints by using regulated cap-and-trade compliance markets to purchase CO2 permits.


We can offer the highest-quality water at the lowest cost-per-litre, and with the lowest possible environmental impact.

Get involved

We believe that progress happens by bringing together people from all walks of life who have the drive and the influence to make a positive change.
