The latest edition of the UN’s annual Greening the Blue report, which provides a snapshot of the UN System’s environmental impacts throughout 2018, was published in the run-up to the UN Climate Action Summit on 23 September. The annual report provides information on the UN’s environmental impacts over the previous year, including data on greenhouse gas emissions, waste, water and environmental management from over 60 entities across the UN System, representing approximately 290,000 personnel.
Introducing the report, UN Secretary-General, António Guterres said: “As the world mobilizes to address the climate emergency, the United Nations must walk the talk. We are taking decisive action to lower our greenhouse gas emissions, reduce energy use across our facilities and operations, transition to cleaner energy sources and improve waste management systems.”
