GREEN HYDROGEN COMPACT CATALOGUE
The Green Hydrogen Compact Catalogue is a platform for dialogue, multistakeholder collaboration and partnerships across the public, private and financial sector to accelerate the development and expansion of the green hydrogen value chain worldwide. The Catalogue collects and showcases voluntary commitments from stakeholders active in all parts of the green hydrogen value chain, from financing and production of renewable energy to production of green hydrogen and derivatives and its off-takers. Through showcasing the action being taken by stakeholders across the value chain, the Catalogue aims to spark dialogue and collaboration and inspire further commitments.
What is an Energy Compact?
Energy Compacts are voluntary commitments of action, with specific targets and timelines to drive the progress on the achievement of SDG7, to accelerate action for clean, affordable energy for all. Open to member states and non-state actors, such as companies, regional/local governments, NGOs and others, more than 150 Energy Compacts have already been registered. Implementation of these commitments will be tracked, and UN-Energy will aim to support the Compacts by providing technical expertise and facilitating partnerships through an Energy Compact Action Network. Actions defined in an Energy Compact can also contribute to Nationally Determined Contributions under the Paris Agreement on climate change and achievement of the broader 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals. Throughout the current Decade of Action, UN-Energy will continue to mobilize more Energy Compacts, raising their ambition and tracking their progress.

About Green Hydrogen Compact
We work with a multitude of partner countries, companies and international organizations to create dialogue and action within the field of green hydrogen.
Who we are?
The Green Hydrogen Compact Catalogue is a broad and inclusive partnership platform. A multi-country initiative to promote the expansion of renewable energy and the production of green hydrogen at scale.
What we do
The Catalogue promote dialogue, partnership and action to incentivize countries, international organization and private sector actors to commit ambitious goals within the green hydrogen value chain in the form of Energy Compacts.
Ahead of the UN High Level Dialogue in Energy in September 2021, the UN invited countries, cities, private sector companies, philanthropies, civil society, and other stakeholders to submit ‘Energy Compacts’: voluntary commitments that contribute to Sustainable Development Goal 7: achieving affordable, reliable, sustainable & modern energy for all. This inspired the creation of Green Hydrogen Compact Catalogue – mobilizing and collating commitments on green hydrogen.
How to Join
To become a contributor to the Green Hydrogen Compact Catalogue your organization have to submit an Energy Compact in accordance with the UN Energy Guidelines. The Catalogue collects and presents all Energy Compacts that is focused on commitments within the green hydrogen value chain.

Launch Reception of the Green Hydrogen Compact Catalogue
The Green Hydrogen Compact Catalogue was launched during the UN General Assembly in New York in 2022 at a high-level reception hosted by Denmark.
1. Who can become a partner?
Any country, company or organization that is part of the green hydrogen value chain.
2. Why should I become a partner?
The action required to decarbonise begins with a multi-stakeholder dialogue to incentivize partnerships, ambitions ans commitments. When you become a partner of the Catalogue you become part of the dialogue that drives the action.
3. What’s the objective of the Catalogue?
The objective of the Catalogue is to create as big a momentum and awareness of the challenges to the expansion of renewable energy and green hydrogen production, and the solutions that that solve them. By bringing together actors from government, international organizations and private sector actors we are able to understand and facilitate the needed commitments to drive the change that we urgently need.
The Green Hydrogen Compact Catalogue is the result of a broad and inclusive partnership between multiple countries, organizations, and private sector partners.
