The World Bank Group is committed to leading by example for development partners and clients by incorporating a comprehensive program to measure, reduce, and offset greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and other environmental impacts in our internal operations, our facilities, major events and corporate travel. Since 2007, the World Bank Group has purchased high quality emission reductions for these purposes.
