Oando Clean Energy attends UN climate conference

Oando Clean Energy Limited, the renewable energy subsidiary of Oando Plc, has said it is attending the 27th United Nations Climate Change Conference meeting currently holding in Egypt.

As Africa’s largest economy and most populous nation, Nigeria is also actively participating in the COP27, with the Minister of Environment, Mohammed Abdullahi, among other Nigerian stakeholders scheduled to attend. It said in a statement that the event themed, ‘‘Delivering for people and the planet’, holding in Sharm El Sheik, Egypt, would host more than 45,000 registered COP27 participants.

It stated that there would be representatives from the United Nations, regional non-governmental and intergovernmental organizations, businesses, the scientific community, local communities as well as civil society, to jointly enhance and accelerate the implementation of climate action and follow up on collective commitments and pledges.

While noting that Africa was no stranger to the disproportionate impact of climate change, it stated that the continent contributes only three per cent to greenhouse gas emissions, but suffered disproportionately from its negative impacts.

OCEL said it would join key renewable players across the African public and private sector to reiterate the role the continent was playing in supporting global targets and creating a more sustainable future.

OCEL in partnership with the Federal Ministry of Environment, Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs, National Council on Climate Change, Renewable Energy Association of Nigeria, and Stratus Consult Limited, would lead two dialogues at the Nigeria Pavilion, the statement said.
