Bureau Veritas endorses the Global Wind Energy Manifesto for COP26
Oct. 18 2021
Today, the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) released a manifesto that calls on policymakers and other stakeholders (such as regulators, systems operators, civil society and local communities) to commit to action at COP26 this year.
To mitigate the effects of climate change and achieve the shared target of net zero emissions by 2050, wind energy must be scaled up to new heights, as it plays a central role in creating a greener world.
In the manifesto, the GWEC and all endorsing companies, like Bureau Veritas, outline eight actions that will help achieve a net zero world within the coming years. Proposals include more ambitious wind power goals, reflected in comprehensive national climate strategies as well as in short- and long-term energy plans. Other ideas include rapid build-out of clean energy grids and charging stations for electric vehicles.
Supporting this initiative, Bureau Veritas collaborates with the energy sector in accelerating energy transition for more than 20 years. We do this by offering services and solutions that tackle both immediate and future challenges to renewable energy development and operation.
