UN Environment is the lead agency for environmental issues within the UN family, with a mandate to provide guidance to the world on environmental issues and assist with environmental best practices across the UN. 

UN Environment's sustainability work is coordinated by the Sustainable United Nations facility in Geneva, which supports UN organizations in their journeys towards climate neutrality and environmental sustainability. Good practice and sustainability initiatives are shared across the UN through the communication work carried out by the Greening the Blue initiative, promoted by the Sustainable United Nations facility. To ensure that we practise what we preach, the Sustainable United Nations facility - with the support of its team in Nairobi - carries out substantial work to green UN Environment operations worldwide.
