MSF - OCB's Global Environmental Footprint Initiative
Building MSF OCB environmental roadmap
About this process
Brussels, 20 June 2022
As you may know, MSF (as a movement) committed to reduce its carbon footprint by at least 50% by 2030 from a 2019 baseline: https://www.msf.org/climate-emergency-msf-commits-reduce-carbon-emissions-help-safeguard-most-vulnerable
To achieve this, OCB (and also OCG, OCP, ICRC, Alima and others) have partnered with Climate Action Accelerator to build an OCB Environmental Roadmap.
We have recruited Maria Ten Palomares (former OCB Energy Team Leader and leader of the Climate, Environment & Health Working Group) as MSF OCB Climate Environment Health Programme Manager, starting 4th July 2022.
We have launched this online consultation platform to ask all OCB staff (field, partner sections, OC) whether the set of proposals previously identified by OCB and complemented by recent work in OCG and OCP to reduce MSF environmental impact are feasible in today’s OCB context, and if there are any further ideas to add.
The online consultation platform will run until 31st Aug 2022, after which we will organise a series of thematic workshops to refine your input, then disseminate and implement an OCB Environmental Roadmap. In parallel, we are working to build an OCB Carbon Footprint 2019 to use as a baseline.
Please 'endorse', comment, propose!
We look forward to hearing from you!
