UNEP is the leading agency for environmental issues within the UN family. We aim to lead by example and practice what we preach. Sustainability is the driving force for all the work that we do, and this is also guiding how we do it.
UNEP is Climate Neutral per 1 January 2008. Our commitment is to reduce emissions to the extent possible and to procure offsets to compensate for the remaining emissions. We are working hard to continuously improve our performance, by reducing our environmental footprint, improving our contribution to development and managing our finances ever more effectively and responsibly. Particular emphasis is given to minimizing our contribution to climate change.
