Greening the Assembly

The GEF is committed to minimizing the environmental impact of the 6th GEF Assembly. As a part of that commitment, the GEF has developed “greening guidelines” for Assembly participants. These measures include sustainable food sourcing, minimizing waste and emphasizing recycling when possible, distribution of a green guide, and offsetting carbon emissions from travel.
