The Energy Agreement for Sustainable Growth gives voice to the willingness of many parties to work on making our society and our economy sustainable. A sustainable energy supply is an indispensable component of that process. The agreement unites divergent interests and brings together more than forty organisations including central, regional and local government, employers associations and unions, nature conservation and environmental organisations, and other civil-society organisations and financial institutions. It is based on the awareness that a long-term perspective means placing the common good far above the separate interests of either individuals or organisations and that it also means a growth path defined by energy and climate objectives as well as by feasible and necessary gains in competitiveness, employment, and exports.
