Abstract: 
The implementation of sustainable development strategies in the energy sector requires adjustements in all countries regardless of their developmental stage. Especially the newly industrializing countries and developing countries should be given the opportunity to install the newest and most efficient technologies. Hence, these countries would leap-frog to the highest possible level of technology. As a first step, CO2-abatement programs need to be established in industrialized countries. As a secont step, the energy in developed should be given incentives to foster investments in newly industrializing and developing countries. An incentive could that the companies offset this cut in CO2-emissions against their national climate protection policy requirements. This, however, is only a first tentative step to bridge the time until a global CO2-system is established.
