UN.org launches sustainability page

Wed, 23/03/11

UN.org - the main website for the UN system - today launched a new web-page on its sustainability performance.

The new web-page, which is currently available in English and French, provides information on the UN Climate Neutral Strategy and progress on its implementation.

The new page reflects the outcome of the last meeting of the UN Communications Group, at which the UN Directors of Communication committed to support Greening the Blue (the UN’s outreach programme for a sustainable UN) and confirm the inclusion of “sustainability” pages on every UN organization and specialized agency website.

Visitors to the new page on UN.org are encouraged to visit Greening the Blue for more detailed information on the UN's sustainability performance.

Niclas Svenningsen, head of the Sustainable United Nations facility, commented:

"The launch of these pages marks a milestone on the journey to make the UN more sustainable. Where a few years ago our work was considered niche, it is rapidly becoming central to the UN's way of doing things."

The pages will soon be available in the other official UN languages - Arabic, Chinese, Russian and Spanish.
