While international cooperation and dialogue may be center stage at UN Geneva, behind the scenes, our various coordination and support functions contribute to smooth and effective UN operations and activities.
We have also made great strides to integrate environmental sustainability, through an innovative Environmental Management System (EMS) which incorporates environmental protection into every aspect of UN Geneva.
This work is already showing concrete results, with UN Geneva achieving climate neutral status. This milestone was reached in part by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and purchasing carbon credits. UN Geneva will become even more environmentally friendly thanks to the planned renovation of the Palais des Nations. These achievements demonstrate that the Sustainable Development Goals can be reached when we work together to make a difference for the future.
