Linkin Park Supports UN's New Sustainable Energy Plan


United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon announced his plan to enact a new "Sustainable Energy for All Initiative," a new plan that includes a partnership with Linkin Park.

The U.N. Foundation will implement the new sustainable energy programs, with a focus in Haiti where 10 million people have no access to electricity. The plan is to ensure universal access to modern energy services, double the rate of energy efficiency and double the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix.

The "Sustainable Energy for All Initiative" is not the first time Ban Ki-Moon and Linkin Park have teamed together, as they have hosted a live Facebook Town Hall meeting regarding disaster relief.

"Most recently we collaborated in our efforts to help in the disaster relief initiatives in Haiti," guitarist Brad Delson told The Observer. "Our fans helped to get these solar lamps, which our bass player Phoenix got to see; he went to Haiti and saw those camps down there."

Drummer Rob Bourdon admitted to The Observer he was unaware 1.4 billion people worldwide don't have access to electricity.
