CEB statement on Moving towards a Climate-Neutral United Nations

The CEB endorsed the Statement on moving towards a climate neutral UN, in which it was agreed that the heads of UN agencies funds and programmes would estimate their GHG emissions, undertake efforts to reduce their GHG footprint to the extent possible, and analyze the cost implications and budgetary modalities of purchasing carbon offsets, with the aim of eventually reaching climate neutrality.

The Statement is available as Annex II of CEB/2007/2 (Summary of Conclusions, Second CEB regular session of 2007)
