UN Environment is promoting environmentally sound technology in line with international agreements. A strong science-policy interface is established by UN Environment. Under the sub programme on Resource Efficiency, the emphasis on environmentally sound technology is greater to reduce the wastage and increase the efficiency of materials of energy.
