Green Economy and Energy Working Group


The purpose and role of the EGE WG is taken from the mandate of the broader BRICS Business Council but is specific to the energy and green economy sectors.  The EGE WG mandate is therefore to identify key areas related to the energy sector where it makes sense for the BRICS country business to work together in areas of mutual interest and benefit in order to strengthen and promote economic, trade, business and investment ties among the business communities of the 5 BRICS countries.
