As of January 15th, 2024, Mana Pacific has been approved and officially published on the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA) Partnerships for the SDGs platform as a private sector partner. This platform is the UN’s global registry of voluntary commitments and multi-stakeholder partnerships to implement the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. The objective of this platform is to mobilize and track these partnerships and commitments, connect the actors who are engaged in them, and provide periodic updates on their progress. This platform will also inform the follow-up and review process of the UN’s 2030 Agenda.
As a social impact company and renewable energy developer, Mana Pacific has committed to implementing SDG 7: Affordable and Clean Energy. Mana Pacific will undergo this implementation through two main commitments to: 1) Deploy additional capacity of 120 MW solar PV and 200 MWh battery storage across Pacific SIDS between 2024 and 2030; and 2) Implement workforce development programs with at least 3 cohorts of 20 renewable energy installation, operation, and maintenance trainees in the Pacific by the end of 2026.
