'Greening the Blue' launches

Mon, 26/04/10

So how will the United Nations celebrate World Environment Day?

This year the UN will use WED (Saturday, 5 June 2010) to highlight the progress that’s been made internally to move the UN-family towards greater sustainability, whilst also pushing for deeper, faster change in all UN organizations.

A stunning new website, Greening the Blue, will be launched on 4 June and will provide a one-stop shop for information on current activities to create a more sustainable UN, as well as details of next the steps on our journey towards greater sustainability.

The website will be full of engaging and stimulating content, much of which is being made public for the first time, including:

  • The greenhouse gas inventories of each UN organisation
  • Case studies of work that’s underway in many UN organisations to reduce their environmental footprint
  • A humorous video showing how UN staff can reduce their work-related impacts, and
  • Details of what the UN plans to do next to improve its sustainability performance.

Watch this space for further information about Greening the Blue or Contact Us for more information.
