Strategy for Sustainability Management in the United Nations System 2020-2030
Phase 1: Environmental sustainability in the area of management
In December 2018, the Secretary-General of the United Nations asked the Organization to raise the level of its internal ambitions and intensify its efforts to combat climate change from within. At the climate summit he has called for, which is to be held in September 2019, the Secretary-General plans to highlight that the United Nations is “walking the talk” on environmental sustainability and climate change.
This request raises the profile of mandate from senior officials of the Environment Management Group to develop an internal sustainability vision and strategy for the United Nations beyond 2020 in order to confirm the Organization ’s leadership aspirations in the area of internal environmental and social sustainability and to show that the United Nations aligns its own performance with the principles that it has pioneered internationally.
