Cleaning Up the Global On-Road Diesel Fleet: A Global Strategy to Introduce Low-sulfur Fuels and Cleaner Diesel Vehicles - As prepared by the Heavy - Duty Diesel Initiative of the Climate and Clean Air Coalition
United Nations Environment Programme

This document presents a strategy for how the world can transition to low-sulfur fuels and cleaner diesel vehicles within the next decade. It also outlines why this is imperative for both health and climate goals. Achieving this change will require a focus on countries that are fuel importers, those struggling to secure financing for refinery upgrades, and those that have yet to match already- available low-sulfur fuels with the vehicle emission standards that secure the full air quality and climate benefits of desulfurization.

Greening Universities Toolkit: Transforming Universities into Green and Sustainable Campuses: A toolkit for Implementers
United Nations Environment Programme

The focus of this Toolkit is to help address that gap – to provide University staff and students with a selection of strategies, tools and resources, gleaned from the literature, from global case studies and from practice which are intended to inspire, encourage and support Universities to develop and implement their own transformative strategies for establishing green, resource-efficient and low carbon campuses. In turn, it is hoped the “green campus” will help inform the “green curriculum”, and extending beyond institutional boundaries, help to catalyse more sustainable communities.
