COP 23 Environmental Statement

The UN Climate Change Conference took place from 6 to 17 November 2017 in Bonn. The environmentally sound, sustainable approach to the conference itself was an important part. For example, GHG emissions will be avoided to the extent possible and unavoidable emissions, such as those associated with air travel of participants registered for either conference zone, will be offset. A comprehensive programme has been developed which enables waste avoidance (to the greatest extent possible), a reduction of printed materials, and wide usage of electronic communication. It also focuses on environmentally responsible and reusable materials for temporary structures and an environmentally conscious catering service.
