Greening the blue report 2021

With significant travel restrictions and large portions of personnel working from home in 2020, the UN system generated approximately 25 per cent fewer greenhouse emissions than in the year before. That’s one of the key points to emerge from the Greening the Blue Report 2021, the first study to reveal the impact that COVID-19 has had on the UN system’s environmental footprint. Addressing the report, the UN Secretary-General remembered that the world still faces a triple emergency - a climate crisis, a nature crisis and a pollution crisis - that demands urgent and determined action from everyone, everywhere.
