Championing Morocco’s Green Credentials

Morocco is a serious player in sustainable development.

Morocco’s unilateral commitment is to produce 52% of its energy mix from renewable sources by 2030 (building on the goal of 42% by 2020).
The United Kingdom, by contrast, has a binding target to generate 30% of electricity from wind, solar and other low-carbon sources by 2020 (progress is reportedly slow).

The United Kingdom, by contrast, closed its Department of Energy and Climate Change and moved its responsibilities to a broader department.
