As a developing country, the Philippines endeavors to be stable and self-reliant in its energy needs within the context of current state policies. One such policy is ensuring an energy supply not only to fuel the country’s economic growth but also to ensure sustainable development. The energy sector is recognized as a major contributor to the adverse effects of global climate change. Thus it is now placing greater emphasis on the utilization of clean fuels and energy technologies, and energy efficiency to address or mitigate the same. While it has no mitigation commitments under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the Philippines is implementing sustainable energy policies domestically to address the adverse effects of climate change, consistent with the principles of the Convention.
