UNESCO has been involved in Climate Neutrality initiatives since 2007 and aims, in line with overall UN objectives, to lead by example and reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to the extent possible. In addition, as part of its commitment to the Climate Neutral UN efforts, UNESCO is conducting an annual Greenhouse Gas Emissions Survey using accepted international standards, taking all offices into consideration and reporting the results to UN HQ, UNESCO has also drafted an Emissions Reduction Plan with reduction targets. A target has been set for a 5% overall GHG emissions reduction from 2011 through 2013, the ultimate goal being a 15% emissions reduction by the end of 2013 compared with 2008 figures.

Bellow you will find a list of links to the United Nations System’s continuing efforts to become Carbon-Neutral and Sustainable.
