The United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon’s World Environment Day message is “Mitigating climate change, eradicating poverty and promoting economic and political stability all demand the same solution: we must kick the carbon habit. This is the theme for World Environment Day 2008. “Kick the Habit: Towards a Low Carbon Economy”|
Recognising that climate change is the defining issue of our era, the United Nations Environment Program is asking countries, companies and communities to focus on greenhouse gas emissions and how to reduce them.
