Recycling and Composting
In 2012, owing to recycling and composting, 86.6 million tons of material was prevented from going to landfill or incineration.
Efforts at the highest level
As many as 21 countries have become climate neutral through the purchase of carbon credits, with one further agency offsetting emissions from its headquarters. These offsets amount to 676,997 tonnes of CO2 equivalent or 32 per cent of the UN's total reported emissions for 2014.
