In the year 2000, the United Nations was looking for a way to go from spending the majority of its time reacting to existing problems…to preventing those problems from happening in the first place. The U.N. reasoned that, if we get a few important things right…our planet and its people will be much better off.
These important actions were articulated as the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Taken together, the U.N. Millennium Development Goals offer a prescriptive remedy for the future of the human race. Of these goals, Number Seven, “ensure environmental sustainability” has become the founding principle of the Intergovernmental Renewable Energy Organization (IREO).
