In order to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres expects everyone to have access to clean, affordable, and efficient energy.

He said this in his message to EXPO 2017, which opened Saturday in the capital of Kazakhstan, Astana.

In his remarks, the UN chief also noted that the theme of this year’s Astana EXPO, ‘Future Energy’, is all the more important given that energy in today’s world comes from many sources that contribute to climate change.
