Climate Action 2008-2009


MITIGATION AND ADAPTATION Walking the talk in the UN THE ROAD TO CLIMATE NEUTRALITY In 2007 the United Nations Chief Executive Board adopted a decision to move the United Nations system towards climate neutrality. The implementation of the decisions falls on each individual UN organisation but common action is coordinated by the Environmental Management Group (EMG) chaired by the UNEP Executive Director, Achim Steiner. To further support organisations to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions (GHG), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), established the Sustainable United Nations (SUN) facility to assist sister organisations in translating the strategy into practical emission reduction measures.
