350 Ghana Reducing Our Carbon (350 G-ROC) is urging the Ministry of Energy to demonstrate real climate leadership by committing to achieving Ghana’s Renewable Energy Agenda.

350 G-ROC is a grassroots movement focused on mobilizing and empowering youth to actively promote the need to reduce carbon emissions.

According to the group, it is time for the government to do more in the implementation of renewable energy projects promised in the Ghana Renewable Energy Act.

They urged the government to ensure at least 10% implementation of the regional RE plans by 2030 from the current 2%.

According to the National Coordinator of 350 G-ROC, Portia Adu Mensah, over 20 years of international climate negotiations have failed to prevent global warming.

“We’re at a tipping point across the world and we are watching as climate impacts escalate,” she said.

350 G-ROC believes that Ghana generating power from the sun and wind could help change the narrative.

“There’s no other way to stop climate breakdown, we must keep fossil fuels in the ground and transition towards 100% renewable energy for all – as soon as possible. We can’t afford to wait any longer. It has to start somewhere. The government needs to stick to its agenda and we need to make sure they do just that.”
