We are part of the "Green Embassy" project

Since April 2019, the Permanent Representation of France to the United Nations in Geneva is committed to reducing the impact of the environment thanks to the "Green Embassy" project.

Launched in 2015, the “Green Embassy” project is a gradual and comprehensive initiative to reduce the environmental impact of France’s diplomatic representations abroad.

The goals of the “Green Embassy” project:

- Internationally strengthen France’s exemplary commitment in regards to sustainable development.
- Make the diplomatic network a showcase for French expertise.
- Improve the management and performance of Embassies and achieve savings.
- Achieve carbon neutrality by 2020.

There are many challenges:
- Reducing greenhouse gas emissions
- Controlling energy and water consumption
- Promoting renewable energy
- Promoting more sustainable procurement
- Encouraging sustainable mobility
- Protecting biodiversity and the environment
- Reducing and recycling waste
- Raising awareness for sustainable development in and around the Permanent Mission.

The Permanent Mission of France is fully committed to sustainable development.

As part of this project, the Permanent Mission has developed an action plan to reduce water and energy consumption, reduce waste, protect biodiversity and make aware agents and visitors of the environmental issues.
