Green Policy

Written by

Stakeholder Forum’s Green Policy

Stakeholder Forum for a sustainable future is an international multi-stakeholder organisation working on sustainable development, and exists to support the increased involvement of stakeholders in international and national governence processes.

We recognise that in meeting these aims our work has an adverse effect on the environment, and we are committed to minimising this at all opportunities.

As such, this policy provides a framework to minimise the environmental impact of our work, following the principles of sustainable development, as we strive to be an example to those who work with us.

Waste Avoidance

Reduce:

  • Use of electronic communication, both internally and externally.
  1. Communication between staff and Board shall be by e-mail or telephone wherever possible, minimising travel to and from the office.
  2. Communication of documents between staff shall be by email wherever possible.
  3. Stakeholder Forum will strive to use 'virtual conferencing' wherever possible.
  • Employees will print or copy documents only when absolutely necessary, and when they do so, will print double sided.
  • Paper and other office supplies shall be reused wherever possible.
  • Energy saving equipment, such as long-life light bulbs, shall be used at all opportunities.
  • We shall ensure only those electrical appliances being used are switched on, and ensure all possible appliances are switched off at night.
  • We will continually explore new opportunities for increasing energy efficiency.

Recycle:

  • Where paper cannot be reused, it shall be recycled.
  • Other waste, including electronic equipment, shall be recycled wherever possible.
  • Wherever waste cannot be recycled, it shall be disposed of in the most environmentally sound way possible.

Purchasing

  • We will only purchase recycled office supplies and stationary.
  • Our publications will be printed on recycled materials wherever possible.
  • We will only purchase timber from sustainable sources.
  • We shall work with our suppliers to ensure that they too work to minimise the environmental impact of their products and transportation.

 

Transport

  • Stakeholder Forum shall encourage staff to travel to and from work using public transport.
  • As we are an international organisation, air travel is an inescapable part of our work.
  • Accepting this, we will continue to explore and use alternative forms of transport whenever possible.
  • Stakeholder Forum will measure its carbon emissions using Key Travel’s carbon emissions calculator. These emissions will be offset by directly investing in a community-based carbon reducing initiative.

FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions


What is meant by the term ‘sustainable development’?

There are a range of definitions of sustainable development, and how it is defined will in many cases depend on who you talk to. However, there is a general consensus that sustainable development entails the three pillars for development: economic, social and environmental.


The most commonly used and widely accepted definition of sustainable development is from the Brundtland Report, Our Common Future, which was published in 1987 as the outcome report of the World Commission on Environment and Development (WCED)chaired by Gro Harlem Brundtland:


"Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”

 

 


Who and what is a ‘stakeholder’?

In its broadest sense, a stakeholder is any individual, organisation, sector or community who has a ‘stake’ in the outcome of a given decision or process.  In the context of international decision making processes, such as those at the UN level, the term stakeholder usually refers to a global constituency or group such as farmers, NGOs, trade unions and workers etc.  It is also important to note that contrary to the term ‘civil society’, which remains a very vague term in the context of international processes, the term stakeholder can help to define different constituencies within civil society.

 

 

 

What is meant by the term 'stakeholder engagement'?

Stakeholder engagement has become an often used but seldom defined phrase in the context of intergovernmental processes.  Indeed, in a number of contexts it has been used to refer to any relations with external stakeholder groups, which in the context of the UN system, usually means any constituency other than a Member State.  Stakeholder Forum defines the term to mean a series of activities that seek to inform, consult and ensure the participation of stakeholders.  An effective engagement strategy is usually one that defines a set of stakeholder groups, allows more than six months for stakeholders to prepare themselves, provides predictable spaces for stakeholders to formally contribute to the content of the meeting or the working groups, and involves a programme of activities and events to ensure a broad base of participation.  For more information please see the Stakeholder Empowerment Project.

 

 

 

Who are the Major Groups?

At the Rio Earth Summit in 1992 it was recognised that ‘one of the fundamental prerequisites for the achievement of sustainable development is broad public participation in decision-making’ Agenda 21.  As a result, a number of key stakeholder groups were recognised for achieving sustainable development namely; Business and Industry; Trade Unions; Indigenous Peoples; Children and Youth; Women; Farmers; Local Government; Non-governmental Organisations; Science and Technology community.  These stakeholder groups have become known as the Major Groups, and are officially recognised within the Commission on Sustainable Development, a two year policy cycle at the UN for developing and reviewing policies on sustainable development   In this context, each Major Group has a number of coordinators whose role it is to reach out to their global constituency, prepare them for the coming CSD cycle, and prepare position papers and inputs.  The Major Groups system has also been recognised by a number of other UN processes including UNEP and the UN Forum on Forests.

 

 

 

What are the UN policy processes related to sustainable development?

The main ongoing policy processes relating to sustainable development at a UN level are:

The Commission on Sustainable Development – responsible for enhancing progress towards and reviewing action taken in relation to the commitments outlined in Agenda 21 and the Johannesburg Plan of Implementation (see below)


The Commission on Social Development – this Commission under the UN seeks to focus on primarily social issues that are critical for achieving sustainable development on a global level


The Millennium Development Goals – the MDGs focus more heavily on more traditional development issues – including poverty, hunger, infant mortality etc. However, the 7th MDG commits countries to ‘ensuring environmental sustainability’, and within that includes a target on biodiversity and management of natural resources. There are ad hoc reviews of progress towards them MDGs, and there will be a Millennium Summit  in 2010


Earth Summit 2012 – this will take place in Rio de Janeiro in 2012, twenty years on from the Rio Earth Summit in 1992, and ten years on from the World Summit on Sustainable Development in 2002. Focus areas include the Green Economy, Global Environmental Governance. Stakeholder Forum is conducting stakeholder engagement and outreach for the Summit. For more information please visit www.earthsummit2012.org.

 

 

 

What have been the main developments in sustainable development at the international level?

There have been a series of milestones in sustainable development at the international level. The following are widely considered to be the most significant developments:


1987: The Brundtland Commission, formally known as the World Commission on Environment and Development, publishes ‘Our Common Future’ and identifies the actions required to achieve sustainable development.


1992: World Conference on Environment and Development, aka Rio Earth Summit – Agenda 21 - the outcome document of the Summit -  outlines the policy changes needed and the means of implementation and finance to deliver sustainable development for the 21st century. This also resulted in three important Conventions – the UN Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD), the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).


2000: Millennium Summit – this conference resulted in the now famous Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), with the aim of enhancing progress towards major development objectives. There are eight MDGs, and the 7th Goal (MDG7), commits countries to ‘ensuring environmental sustainability’.


2002: The World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD): This conference was conceived to enhance global political momentum towards achieving the commitments outlined in Agenda 21 ten years beforehand. It also sought to identify commitments in relation to emerging issues. The outcome document, the Johannesburg Plan of Implementation (JPOI) is characterised by its focus on ‘Partnerships’ for delivering sustainable development objectives, as opposed to legally binding commitments or Treaties. These partnerships became known as ‘Type II Partnerships.


2002 – 2012: The Commission on Sustainable Development - responsible for enhancing progress towards and reviewing action taken in relation to the commitments outlined in Agenda 21 and the Johannesburg Plan of Implementation.


Earth Summit 2012 – this will take place in Rio de Janerio in 2012, twenty years on from the Rio Earth Summit in 1992, and ten years on from the World Summit on Sustianabel Development in 2002. Focus areas include the Green Economy, Global Environmental Governance. Stakeholder Forum is conducting stakeholder engagement and outreach for the Summit. For more information please visit www.earthsummit2012.org


 

 

Does Stakeholder Forum have an agenda?

Stakeholder Forum’s agenda is to advance progress towards internationally agreed commitments on sustainable development. It believes that open, informed and transparent decision-making at a global level is critical in achieving this goal, which is why it focuses on stakeholder engagement. Rather than advancing any one particular stakeholder position, it seeks to identify areas of consensus as well as priority issues identified by a range of stakeholders. It does not advance positions or opinions for which there is little consensus, or where they flagrantly contradict the principles of achieving sustainable development.

 

 

What is Stakeholder Forum's internal green policy?

How is Stakeholder Forum funded?

Stakeholder Forum is funded by a combination of Foundations, charitable trusts, governments and UN agencies. Stakeholder Forum only takes money from organisations and institutions who can demonstrate a commitment to advancing progress towards the achievement of sustainable development.
