Our own sustainability
Future Earth aims to limit the impact of its operations on the environment, and to promote sustainable behaviour in our use of resources, governance, finances and human capital.
We've reduced travel associated with in-person meetings by making extensive use of online meetings between the distributed hubs that make up the Secretariat.
Building a culture of sustainability within Future Earth extends beyond the Secretariat operations to all of the projects and initiatives that form part of the programme.
We’re collecting examples of good practice on this page:
Ocean2k is a working group of the PAGES - Past Global Changes project. Their aim is to place marine climate changes of the past century within the context of the previous two millennia.
In this blog piece, the group talk about how they've reduced travel to face-to-face meetings and developed a 'virtual only' approach to joint working.
