Sustainability and climate neutrality of the conference Reduce – Re-use – Recycle The Government of France has set itself the objective of organizing the Paris sessions as an exemplary conference in terms of sustainability, by re-using and recycling all materials and using as little energy as possible. The 3 R’s of COP 21/CMP 11 are as follows:  Reducing consumption of resources as an intelligent response to energy needs;  Re-using (or renting) the furniture, structures, material and lighting used;  Recycling (zero-wastage strategy). In order to offset the emissions that cannot be avoided and to ensure that the Paris sessions are a “carbon neutral” event, the Government of France will finance one or more emissions reduction projects.

Become Climate Neutral Now! Visit the UNFCCC Climate Neutral Desk on the “Champs Élysées” near the UN Information Counter where participants can calculate and purchase offsets immediately. Participants doing this will receive a lanyard for their badge, showing that they are climate neutral. UNFCCC’s Climate Neutral Now initiative offers all participants the possibility to become climate neutral by using UNFCCC certified offsets from the Clean Development Mechanism to compensate for the climate footprint related to their attendance at the conference.
