OSAKA CITY GOVERNEMENT
The Osaka city government supports UNEP IETC through the Global Environment Centre Foundation (GEC). Osaka city considers environmental stewardship as the key to a sustainable future and aims to be an "environmentally progressive city."
In March 2011 Osaka city launched its 'environmental vision.' The merger of IETC's two offices into a single operation in Osaka in April 2011 provided an impetus for even closer cooperation with the city.
