In a historic resolution passed on January 24, 2024, the Nation of Hawai’i reaffirms its dedication to preserving its unique natural beauty, ecological diversity, and cultural heritage.

Renewable energy is not only a pillar of sovereignty for the Nation, but also a key component for environmental sustainability and a catalyst for economic growth. It creates employment opportunities and enhances energy security, contributing to a prosperous and resilient future for the Nation of Hawai’i.
In light of this resolution, the Nation of Hawai’i expresses its wholehearted support for the promotion and implementation of renewable energy and sustainable technology initiatives, both within its communities and across the globe.
