UNDP Bratislava Regional Center goes GREEN

  1. 1. UNDP Bratislava Regional Center GOES GREEN
  2. 2. Outline <ul><li>BRC 2010 greening results </li></ul><ul><li>BRC Greening and Emission </li></ul><ul><li>Reduction Strategy for 2011/13 </li></ul>
  3. 3. Carbon footprint per staff in 2009 (in tones CO2e)
  4. 4. BRC carbon footprint in 2009 by source (in tones CO2 e) Emission source Total emissions [tones CO2e] As % of entire inventory Air travel 500.9 80% Vehicle fleet 15.9 3% Public transport 13.7 2% RAC 7.1 1% Purchased heat/steam   0% On-site fuel combustion 56.9 9% Electricity 32.1 5%
  5. 5. BRC consumption of different sources (2003 to 2010)
  6. 6. Actions taken in 2010 <ul><li>All air condition units installed are environmentally friendly. Whole third floor is equipped with low energy consumption air conditions and additional six are placed on other floors </li></ul><ul><li>Installing 4 toilets with water-saving flushing options </li></ul><ul><li>Providing more offices with the switch on/off extension cords for individual computers </li></ul><ul><li>Placing re-chargeable batteries to all office appliances where applicable </li></ul><ul><li>Establishing Energy star label as a condition when procuring new computers </li></ul>
  7. 7. BRC Greening and Emission Reduction Strategy for 2011/13 <ul><li>Objectives: </li></ul><ul><li>To become climate neutral (offsetting pilot) </li></ul><ul><li>To reduce BRC total GHG emissions by 1% per year for 2011, 2012, 2013 compared to 2009 </li></ul><ul><li>To reduce overall environmental impact of premises, operations and programming </li></ul><ul><li>To monitor, report and evaluate the GERP implementation on the annual basis </li></ul><ul><li>To share the results and good practice within the region and globally, within UNDP and beyond   </li></ul>
  8. 8. BRC Greening and Emission Reduction Strategy <ul><li>Objectives to be achieved through: </li></ul><ul><li>Emissions and environmental impact reduction </li></ul><ul><li>Emissions offsetting </li></ul>
  9. 9. Emissions and environmental impact reduction <ul><li>Focus areas: </li></ul><ul><li>Travel : awareness, alternatives to travel, better travel and transport organization, on-line events / training, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Facilities and operations : events’ greening, energy audit, continue in recycling and increase resource use efficiency and saving; </li></ul><ul><li>Staff awareness, communication and engagement : outdoor events, results reporting, ‘green office corners’, incentives for better resources use and saving; </li></ul><ul><li>Procurement of goods and services , including printing: ‘green criteria for new technology such as Energy star and A label, eco-label, ISO 14001, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Environment, including climate change safeguard for programmes and projects : guidance and training on reflecting environment and climate change in programming </li></ul>
  10. 10. Offsetting <ul><li>Offsetting emissions not possible and reasonable to reduce </li></ul><ul><li>Proposed option to be piloted in 2011: </li></ul><ul><li>To purchase Certified Emission Reductions (CERs) from projects (CDM, MDG Carbon) that reduce emissions and generate comparable levels of sustainable development benefits. </li></ul><ul><li>We have a chance to become the first UNDP carbon neutral office already in 2011! </li></ul>
