This manual provides an overview of the various approaches to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases across different areas of work and between different United Nations (UN) organizations. Not only does this publication offer a generic model on how to approach emissions reductions, it also provides an introduction to basic concepts, reduction options (e.g. finding alternatives to air travel, as it is found that in most UN organizations air travel generates the vast majority of greenhouse gas emissions) and advice on how to get started. The manual is of particular reference to UN staff and policy makers looking for an introduction to emissions reductions.
