The recording of the official launch of GINGR at COP28

It is vital that the transition to renewable energy systems contains protections for nature. That is why we need GINGR, to help ensure the transition helps and not harms the environment and contributes towards nature positive goals. We are proud to collaborate with the Renewables Grid Initiative in this work. Dr. Grethel Aguilar, Director General, IUCN
The Renewables Grid Initiative (RGI) and the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) launched GINGR at COP28. On the 5th of December 2023, GINGR was officially introduced to the public. Speakers of the launch event, including governments worldwide, renewable industry stakeholders, and civil society organisations unanimously agreed on the imperative need to jointly achieve climate and biodiversity targets. GINGR was warmly welcomed as a pivotal initiative in realising this shared vision.
