Sustainability is a key part of UNOPS strategic plan for 2014-2017. Therefore, improving Environmental Management performance by preventing or mitigating adverse impacts on the environment will support delivering projects in a sustainable manner. UNOPS is implementing an Environmental and Social Management System (ESMS) aligned to the ISO 14001 standard to help identify and mitigate environmental impacts of its operations.

With this system UNOPS intends to manage its environmental risks and impacts throughout the life cycle of projects in a systematic manner that leads to continuous improvement and development of local capacity. Therefore, UNOPS intends to extend the application of the ESMS to all its operations and embed ESMS as a part of normal value creation in the UNOPS business cycle.

Additionally, UNOPS complies with the environmental policies and frameworks of its partners including several multilateral and bilateral donor institutions, governments and other stakeholders. To ensure compliance with UNOPS own HSE systems and policies, environmental safeguards and policies of partners, UNOPS requires support from qualified Environment Specialists on a retainer basis. The Environment Specialist will be responsible for identifying interactions of the project with the environment, defining the associated impacts of these interactions and  proposing mitigation measures as well as protocols for implementing them. The specialist may also be engaged in monitoring and reporting on UNOPS ESMS.
