Our Vision of Environmental Sustainability Management
- Measuring CO2 equivalent emissions
- Reducing unnecessary emissions
- Offsetting unavoidable emissions (in the pipeline)

- If all personnel turned the light off in their office, FAO could annually save 250 megawatt-hour and reduce its CO2 equivalent emissions by 172 metric tons.


- By setting back 1°C on your room’s thermostat, it is possible to cut these costs and emissions up to 5%. Similarly in Summer, by setting the thermostat 1°C higher for air conditioning.
