The meeting was chaired by Niclas Svenningsen, Head of the Sustainable UN team, which coordinates and supports the IMG. The meeting agenda included: this year's greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory process; the development of the first generation of Emission Reduction Strategies for UN organizations; and the status of carbon offsets. In addition, sessions on efforts to reduce the impacts from UN activities such as travel, building management and procurement were held. The next report on the UN's sustainability performance will be published in February 2011. [UN Greening the Blue Press Release] [Meeting Website]
