Maximising the Environmental Sustainability of our Work

In line with Commitment #2, and the principle of “do no harm,” we must work to maximize our environmental sustainability. Many organisations are incorporating more environmentally friendly programming and nature-based solutions into their humanitarian programming cycles. The commitment also indicates that organisations will measure and significantly reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, in line with global goals. Supporting high-quality emission reduction projects to offset unavoidable emissions will complement reduction efforts. Further, organisations are looking into how they can responsibly manage and use natural resources like water while also cutting down on waste generated in their premises and by their programmes.
