As in previous summers, UN Headquarters carries out its “Cool UN” programme to demonstrate the Organization’s commitment to using energy wisely and to reducing our greenhouse gas emissions. Thermostats at UN Headquarters are now set to 77°F / 25°C in offices, and to 75°F / 24°C in the conference rooms. The landlords of our leased spaces in New York are asked to join us in this effort.
Staff are encouraged to dress in lighter clothing appropriate for a business setting, including national dress, so as to remain comfortable during the summer months. For any issues relating to climate control in the office, please contact the help desk of the Facilities Management Service by submitting a service request through iNeed, or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
