Greening the WSSD is the first attempt to reduce the environmental impacts of a major UN Summit on the host city .  In this case, the people of Johannesburg. By working with them, we aim to protect, conserve and improve the city's environment and natural resources........ leaving a legacy for the future.

How much carbon is the Summit generating? How much waste is going to landfill? How much is being recycled? How much water and energy is being used?

To answer these questions, simply look out for our Consumption Barometer.

The Consumption Barometer is being displayed at major venues on electronic billboards, and published in daily newspapers.

But how do you minimise your impact? Indeed, how do you make your environmental impact positive rather than negative? The Consumption Barometer will guide you in the right direction.
