The United Nations Foundation, which connects businesses and others with the UN’s work, has chosen Weber Shandwick to help with the organization’s “Sustainable Energy for All” campaign, focused on energy’s uses for global development and poverty reduction.
The firm was chosen after a competitive search. Weber’s Social Impact division, based in D.C., will lead the effort, which will include media relations and strategy work.
Sustainable energy is a top priority for UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon during his second five-year term. Goals include doubling the rate of energy efficiency improvement by 2030.
