António Guterres, the United Nations Secretary-General, says countries worldwide must act towards phasing out fossil fuels.

Guterres made this call while speaking over the weekend at the first International Day of Clean Energy celebration.

He noted that phasing out fossil fuel was necessary and inevitable.

Guterres added that clean energy is a gift, the whole world must embrace.

“It is my firm belief that fossil fuel phase-out is not only necessary but also inevitable. But we need governments to act, to accelerate the transition, with the biggest emitters leading the way,” he stated.
