Toward a Sustainable Future: The Importance of Energy Transition.

Toward a Sustainable Future: The Importance of Energy Transition.

In an increasingly concerned world about climate change and resource scarcity, sustainability is closely linked to energy transition, mainly because we still rely on fossil resources such as oil and coal. Over the years, this dependence has caused a series of environmental and social problems, including the emission of greenhouse gases (Paris Agreement), air pollution, and health issues, among others. To address this issue, it is crucial to promote the shift towards clean and renewable energies such as solar, wind, hydroelectric, geothermal, among others, as they are viable and sustainable alternatives.

In addition to environmental benefits, energy transition also presents economic opportunities. Investing in renewable energies and sustainable technologies drives economic growth and creates new jobs in the energy sector. According to a report from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and the International Labor Organization (ILO), it is estimated that more jobs will be created than lost during the energy transition. It is projected that this sector could generate more than 43 million jobs by 2050. Sustainable companies are also attracting investors due to their high potential for long-term profitability, their ability to reduce and avoid risks, and current consumer trends favoring sustainable products and services that have a positive impact on the environment and society.

Sustainability involves balancing meeting current needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs. Therefore, organizations need to focus on creating a business strategy that turns them into sustainable companies through social, environmental, and good governance commitments. This is where Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) criteria come into play. Companies that focus their strategies on creating a positive impact on the environment and society sustainably in the long term are better positioned in various aspects, generating greater value for their stakeholders. According to the EY study “Overview of Latin American Companies on ESG,” these criteria are gaining significant importance in Latin America, especially in Colombia, where 59% of the interviewed companies claim to have a strong ESG strategy.

We cannot discuss ESG criteria without mentioning the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), as they provide a global framework to guide both companies and society toward a more sustainable future. ESG criteria become a useful tool to assess the progress and impact of actions taken to achieve these goals. Together, they create a comprehensive framework that drives sustainability at all levels.

Sustainability, energy transition, and the human factor are fundamental aspects on the path to building a more sustainable world. At JDV Partners, we have demonstrated this by successfully placing Sustainability Managers and Directors focused on making a positive impact on the environment, communities, and society in general. By promoting the adoption of renewable energies and creating a business approach based on ESG criteria, we can move towards a more equitable, prosperous, and harmonious future. Sustainability is not just a challenge but also an opportunity to create a better world for present and future generations.
