Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all
Earth Day is celebrated every year on April 22nd, and it is a global event aimed at raising awareness and promoting action towards environmental protection. It was first celebrated in 1970, and since then, it has become one of the largest civic events in the world, with over one billion people participating in activities such as clean-up campaigns, tree-planting initiatives, and educational programs. The theme for 2023 is Invest in Our Planet, a campaign that will focus on engaging governments, institutions, businesses and individuals in the fight against the climate crisis.
This article, written by ICIS, a RELX business, explores how chemicals and energy sectors, both of which are largely fossil fuel dependent, are navigating sustainability and the movement towards net zero. This article relates to SDG 7, Affordable and Clean Energy.
ICIS, a RELX business, argues that because of unpredictable weather and environmental conditions, industry cannot run alone on electricity. Hydrogen could answer these problems and more, as it offers all the benefits of natural gas, like flexible power generation and ease of storage, but when burned it emits zero carbon. This article relates to SDG 7, Affordable and Clean Energy.
This article, related to SDG 7, Affordable and Clean Energy, analyses the factors influencing the global energy transition, it's impact on trading markets and business, and the new energy sources that we are transitioning into.
What is renewable hydrogen and could it help lead the way towards reaching SDG 7, affordable and clean energy? ICIS, a RELX business, dives into the background and implications of the Delegated Act (DA), which outlines the minimum shares of renewable energy in the transport sector and sets out the conditions a hydrogen producer would need to meet in order for their hydrogen to be consider renewable (green) hydrogen.

Born in 1978, Pollutec is recognized today as the reference meeting place for environment professionals. The event develops multiple SDGs, including SDGs 6 (clean water and sanitation), 7 (affordable and clean energy), 12 (responsible consumption and production) and 13 (climate action).
The UK Climate Change Agreements (CCA) aim to save energy and carbon emissions by way of energy efficiency targets in industrial sectors, while simultaneously reducing energy costs for participating organisations with large discounts on Climate Change Levies (CCL). This article is related to SDG 7, Affordable and Clean Energy; SDG 13, Climate Action; and SDG 9, Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure; as it demonstrates the ways in which governments can not only improve energy efficiency but also benefit industrial sectors.
In the effort to combat climate change and reduce energy consumption, largescale energy efficiency improvements to residential and commercial properties are a key aspect of the UK Government's Clean Growth Strategy. This article discusses the history of The Green Deal and the legal implications for landlords and tenants of the private rented sector. The need for energy-efficient homes and commercial properties relates to SDG 7, Affordable and Clean Energy, which aims to ensure access to affordable, sustainable, and modern energy for all. Affordable and clean energy for all will combat climate change by reducing energy consumption and emissions, thus relating this article to SDG 13, Climate Action.
