About ICSE

The International Council for Sustainable Energy (ICSE) was established in December 2007 as an alliance of the European Business Council for Sustainable Energy (e5), the United States Business Council for Sustainable Energy and the Australian Clean Energy Council.*

Together we represent hundreds of companies with a commercial interest in the expansion of global sustainable energy and energy efficiency markets.  These companies are active in investing substantial capital to meet the intersecting challenges of climate change, energy security and ensuring adequate warmth for vulnerable groups.

Through a range of activities, the ICSE seeks to influence international negotiations on sustainable energy and climate change issues. In addition, individual Council’s have active programmes of engagement at a domestic scale.

*Note: The United Kingdom Business Council for Sustainable Energy was also a founding partner, but has since closed its operations.
