The Red Cross signed a charter on 25th July committing to the implementation of a 30-month plan which will see them in accordance with the National Pact for Energy Transition. The main goal will be to achieve a substantial lowering of greenhouse gas emissions by 2021. 

 “By signing the Pact today, the Monegasque Red Cross has made the choice to engage in a vast awareness campaign for its teams and in concrete actions to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions,” said Marie-Pierre Gramaglia, Minister of Equipment, the Environment and Urbanism. “These are ambitious goals but at the height of the climatic emergency with meteorological phenomena that strike more and more countries and its populations, and mobilise more and more humanitarian organisations like the Red Cross.”

 The overall plan will encompass many facets and will affect management as well as employees on the ground. Representatives will be appointed to help staff implement the new changes which will include a system of on-site waste and energy management, the option of telecommuting and regular meetings to ensure the plan is being carried out properly.
