Renewable Energy Institutes Joins the F20 Platform
Foundations take a stand to combat climate change of G20 countries

20 December 2018

in Japanese

On August 2018, Renewable Energy Institute joined the F20 Platform.

The F20 platform was formed for the Hamburg G20 summit in 2017, by a broad group of philanthropic foundations and thinktanks in order to contribute to the political discourse on climate change discussion during the G20 process. Today the F20 platform consists of more than 45 organizations from different parts of the world. It strives to be part of the solution on climate change by building bridges between civil society, business and politics within the G20 countries and beyond.

Renewable Energy Institute is a steering group member and the first organization from Japan to join the F20 platform. Besides having participated in F20 events during the 2018 G20 Buenos Aires Summit in Argentina, and more recently in COP24 in Katowice, Poland, the Institute will continue to work closely with F20 by supporting its activities for the 2019 G20 Osaka Summit.  It will organize workshops, invite experts on climate change and host international symposiums, as well as provide opportunities for dialogue with the government.
