The majority of UN system organizations have now designated climate neutral focal points. Eight of them have established internal task forces to address climate neutrality within their organization, while ten have designated a "senior-level champion" to drive the process. Eight organizations have prepared a strategy document outlining how they intend to move the organization towards climate neutrality.
The organizations main sources of greenhouse gas emissions are from official travel, refrigerants use in air conditioning, official vehicles, and electricity consumption. Good progress has been made by organizations in estimating their greenhouse gas footprints, with some seventeen agencies having begun the process, eight of which have preliminary data, and four of which have final or near-final numbers.
Some ten agencies have developed strategies outlining how they will reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, of which seven have already begun implementing some measures. Seven organizations have organized climate-neutral events made possible through the purchase of offsets.
A UN Climate Neutral Knowledge Management website has been established to provide a platform for sharing experience, tools, methods, guidelines, bench-marking and documenting best-practice. It will also document individual agency's greenhouse gas emissions and reductions.
