Flight emission results need to be analyzed in order to support travel reduction measures, in particular the use and strengthening of online meeting culture in UNEP. Lastly, the success of the joint UNEP-UNON waste management and recycling initiative at the UN Gigiri compound in Nairobi has caught the interest of the UN Secretariat’s and it has been suggested that UNEP and UNON create guidelines for the procurement of such services so as to help other UN System agencies replicate.
