A main priority in the planning of the 2013 UNEP FI Global Roundtable was to achieve a carbon neutral event. With thanks to our Carbon-Neutral partners, the China Beijing Environmental Exchange and the Bank of China, we were able to offset 559 tonnes. At the end of the two-day conference, Mr Shaozhong Du, Chairman of the China Beijing Environmental Exchange presented Ms Yuki Yasui, Acting head of UNEP FI, with an official Carbon Credit Transaction Certificate. To prepare for the GRT, UNEP FI utilized the 2012 UNEP Sustainable Conference Guide. For a list of green practices that were followed, please see the Green GRT section.
