International procedural law — Recognition and enforcement

This chapter provides an overview of energy-related sustainability objectives. It also provides a list of instruments aimed at their enforcement. Today, not many avenues are available to use international arbitration to enforce sustainability objectives. The chapter analyzes whether and how international arbitration can offer support for desirable developments towards meeting sustainable energy needs for the future by encouraging new instruments and other innovations. It also acknowledges the importance of what might be called ‘indirect’ enforcement of sustainability objectives, via legal instruments other than those defining the sustainability objectives as such (eg commercial arbitration enforcing the construction of a solar energy plant).
