Kenya, Achim Steiner, Executive Director, UNEP

Achim Steiner is well known for speaking on climate change and the green economy.

Thanks to his leadership among others, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is a leading proponent of the Green Economy Initiative (GEI) designed to assist governments in “greening” their economies by reshaping and refocusing policies and investments towards a range of sectors. These include clean technologies, renewable energies, water services, green transportation, waste management, green buildings and sustainable agriculture and forest management.
