Created in 2010, the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) is a global forum where major economies and forward leaning countries work together to share best practices and promote policies and programs that encourage and facilitate the transition to a global clean energy economy.
CEM members account for approximately 75% of global greenhouse gas emissions and 90% of global clean energy investments.
The annual CEM Ministerial meeting is the only high-level political engagement where ministers gather to establish clean energy priorities, put forward innovative policies and adopt concrete measures to accelerate the deployment of clean solutions and where the work is carried through year-round CEM initiatives and campaigns.
The CEM's initiatives and campaigns enable low-cost, high-impact technical work that amplifies each government's clean energy deployment efforts. They seek to catalyse public and private actions towards ambitious but realistic targets.
To achieve its goals, the CEM works with partners from the private sector, international organisations and civil society to bring their respective abilities, strengths, and resources to the table.
