Reducing the environmental footprint of international organizations


This topic is restricted to International Financial Institutions. Please consider the following questions for this topic:


a. The IMF and other international organizations advocating for sustainable economic and financial policies must ‘walk the talk’ when it comes to their own activities. How could we design a coherent framework for developing and measuring progress against internal CO2 targets, including publicized milestones? For example, can we advance green procurement standards for institutional procurement? Can we use green budgeting in budget planning and green accounting and disclosures for our own financial investments?

b. How can we find novel ways of restructuring our activities to reduce our environmental impact while maintaining the highest-level services to the membership?
