Investing in the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) means investing in a leading global authority on the environment for people and planet. Since 1972, UNEP is a powerful advocate, setting the global environmental agenda, promoting partnerships, providing leadership and delivering scientific solutions on some of the most urgent challenges facing the planet and humankind.
UNEP brings people together and provide multiple platforms for inquiry, discussions and decisions on the environment, not least the world’s highest-level environmental decision-making body – the UN Environment Assembly that meets biannually in Nairobi.
Supporting countries in addressing the triple planetary crisis of climate change, nature and biodiversity loss and pollution and waste, and their efforts to balance the environmental, economic and social dimensions of sustainable development, UNEP's work is categorised into three thematic subprogrammes of climate action, nature action and chemicals and pollution action. Two foundational programmes of science-policy and environmental governance underpin the work.
UNEP also hosts the secretariats of many critical multilateral environmental agreements and research bodies, bringing together nations and the environmental community to tackle the greatest challenges of our time.
As a trusted partner, UNEP is committed to efficiency and effectiveness to ensure best value for money for taxpayers, funding partners and investors.
