UNEP FI is establishing Regional Roundtables to provide an opportunity for members and actors in the sustainable finance community to come together locally to discuss the latest trends and innovations, and share good practice. 2017 marks UNEP FI’s 25th anniversary, and in this landmark year, our first ever Regional Roundtables will be the focus of our celebrations.

Carbon Offset results of the Regional Roundtables

UNEP FI collaborated with Eco Act to reduce the carbon emissions generated by the 2017 Regional Roundtables and even successfully achieved carbon neutrality by offsetting 535 tCO2. The carbon offsetting project was dedicated to ‘’the Sustainable Deployment of the LifeStraw Family in rural Kenya’’ and allows to avoid around two millions GHG emissions each year. This project distributes innovative water filters to local populations, granting access to potable water and diminishing wood consumption. The program has provided access to potable water to 4.5 million people, as well as enabling them to save time and improve their health conditions.
