Overview
Mission and vision

The UNEP Risoe Centre on Energy, Climate and Sustainable Development (URC) –formerly UNEP Collaborating Centre on Energy and Environment– was established in October 1990. URC operates under a tripartite agreement between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark, the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). Since 01 January 2012 URC is part of the Department of Management Engineering at DTU.

The main function of the URC is to support UNEP in planning and implementing its energy policy and programme. The general objective of URC is to promote and facilitate the incorporation of environmental and development aspects into energy policy and planning worldwide, especially in developing countries.
URC's mission and vision.

With UNEP's Energy Programme increasing focus on climate change, the URC activity focus has, beyond the traditional energy and development issues, included the emerging carbon markets and the Clean Development Mechanism.

URC is located at the Risoe Campus, close to the city of Roskilde, 40 km from Copenhagen. Travel information for visitors.
