NSEFI awarded Special Consultative Status by UN ECOSOC


The National Solar Energy Federation of India (NSEFI) today announced that it has been granted special consultative status by United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). 

Consultative status with ECOSOC empowers NSEFI to actively engage with ECOSOC, its subsidiary bodies, the Human Rights Council, select meetings of the General Assembly and other intergovernmental bodies, and the United Nations Secretariat. This status opens new avenues for collaboration and advocacy, allowing NSEFI to contribute more effectively to global sustainable development efforts, stated NSEFI in a media release.

Deepak Gupta, director general of NSEFI, said, “This recognition underscores our commitment to sustainable development and renewable energy initiatives. We look forward to actively contributing to the economic and social discourse and collaborating with other stakeholders to address global challenges.”

Kataru Ravi Kumar Reddy, chairman of NSEFI, added, “This is a rare privilege extended to the Indian renewable industry and a global recognition of India’s prowess and achievements in promoting renewable energy and combating climate change.” 

“NSEFI is working toward achieving the vision of Hon’ble Prime Minister Narendra Modi for 450 GW of RE installed capacity in the country by 2030 and achieving net zero transition in due course.”

With special consultative status, NSEFI can access multiple United Nations facilities, participate in meetings, organize side events, and foster connections with other stakeholders. These developments provide NSEFI with enhanced opportunities to contribute and strengthen its engagement within the United Nations community.
