UNEP Inquiry Annual Overview 2017
United Nations Environment Programme

When the UN Environment Inquiry began its work in 2014, green and sustainable finance was very much under the radar – a “quiet revolution” that needed to be encouraged, nurtured and teased from its shell. This is what the Inquiry set out to do. We surpassed even our own expectations. Over the last few years, cooperative international efforts carried by the G20, the G7, the UN, and the Financial Stability Board (FSB) have all addressed different aspects of sustainable and green finance, while at the same time increasingly involving the private sector. Multilateral development banks and international financial institutions continue to actively promote sustainable finance. These combined factors have led to great strides in laying the groundwork for a sustainable financial system, as many developments show. Nearly 300 policy and regulatory measures targeting sustainability were in place in over 60 countries as of October 2017 – up roughly 30 percent since July 2016. Green bond issuance hit a new record of US$155.5 billion in 2017, with more growth expected. Sustainable finance has even reached UN Secretary-General level, with António Guterres in September unveiling a strategy to help reshape the financial system to make it fit-for-purpose – a direct echo of what we have been doing for four years.

Environmental Assessment of Ogoniland - Executive Summary and Introduction
United Nations Environment Programme

A major new independent scientific assessment, carried out by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), shows that pollution from over 50 years of oil operations in the region has penetrated further and deeper than many may have supposed. The assessment has been unprecedented. Over a 14-month period, the UNEP team examined more than 200 locations, surveyed 122 kilometers of pipeline rights of way, reviewed more than 5,000 medical records and engaged over 23,000 people at local community meetings. The environmental restoration of Ogoniland could prove to be the world's most wide-ranging and long term oil clean-up exercise ever undertaken if contaminated drinking water, land, creeks and important ecosystems such as mangroves are to be brought back to full, productive health. The report key findings are alarming both in terms of human health protection and environmental protection.
