2050Today Members

Permanent Mission of the Kingdom of Morocco

Signatory institution of the 2050Today Charter

Contribution to climate action

The Permanent Mission of the Kingdom of Morocco is encouraged that more than 60 institutions (permanent Missions, international Organizations and civil entities) based in international Geneva have committed to the climate initiative from 2050Today. Local climate measures are important to ensure the impact of our actions and to measure the action results. In this perspective, contributions to the promotion and protection of a healthy and sustainable environment in a context marked by global warming and the growing threat of biodiversity loss is a must.

The permanent mission of the Kingdom of Morocco is one of the initiating institutions of 2050Today.

This Mission is committed to achieving the common goal of 2050Today: reducing CO2 emissions by 2030, to reach the target of 0 net emissions by 2050 and evaluating the results annually.

Thematic actions


Concerning the energy consumption, an action plan has been implemented to raise staff awareness about consuming responsibly. We have indicated on this plan, some examples to reduce energy consumption like turning off computers and lights before any definitive exit.


As part of its Green and Sustainable Mission program, the Mission of Morocco has developed an internal food guideline to inform and raise awareness among its staff about the commitment to reducing C02 emissions. This program is being carried out to rethink eating habits during office hours and to integrate greener eating patterns.

The idea promotes food patterns for a clean, healthy and sustainable environment: Firstly, focusing on reducing meat consumption during office lunches. The carbon footprint of meat is the highest amongst all nutrition groups. The production of one kg of beef can emit up to 60 kg of greenhouse gases, whereas peas emit only 1 kg of CO2 emissions. Animal products in particular, such as meat and dairy products, have a large carbon footprint not only because of their methane (through fermentation and digestion) and nitrous oxide emissions but also because of their more complex production processes. If the products are additionally sold on the international market, the emission balance of each product increases further due to the transport routes.

So eating seasonally comes with several benefits:

  • Better for the health
  • Tasty and fresh
  • Less expensive
  • Favouring short circuits, i.e. local products
  • Reduced environmental impact
  • Favours new culinary discoveries


Regarding mobility, awareness has been raised among staff to use public transport and implement car sharing.

Sustainable IT

This Mission ensures that its electronic tools are repaired to avoid any waste.

Waste management

This Mission implemented the selective sorting of waste. Moreover, all staff take care to ensure that they consume paper reasonably.

Footprint and emissions by scope

2050Today’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions measurement methodology follows the GHG Protocol. The Protocol provides standards and guidance for organizations to measure and manage climate-warming emissions. It was created in 1998 through a partnership between the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD).

According to the GHG Protocol, the distribution of emissions is done by scopes:

Scope 1 represents direct emissions linked to the consumption of fossil fuels.

Scope 2 represents indirect emissions from the generation of purchased electricity, steam, heating and cooling consumed by the reporting company.

Scope 3 includes all other indirect emissions that occur in a company’s value chain (i.e. purchased good or services, business travel, employee commuting).

The 2050Today carbon footprint takes into account the reported emissions generated by the activities of the institution over one year and is divided by categories:

Energy and water

It takes into account the amount of the consumed electricity produced and purchased by the institution. The energy consumed to heat and/or cool the institution’s building area and the consumed water are included as well.


It takes into consideration business travels and commuting (on a survey basis).


The CO2 impact of food includes the catering of the institution and individual consumption (on a survey basis) during working hours.

Purchased goods

The perimeter of purchased goods is set to a list of new office equipment, new mobility equipment (vehicles) and construction materials.


The perimeter of the waste inventory is set to waste production from facilities and internal operations of the institution

It has to be noted that the collected data of the 2050Today members resulting in each carbon footprint are not yet fully standardized and might not be entirely complete. Data collection is being progressively harmonized and improved. Therefore, direct comparisons between tCO2 / employee among institutions – be it in general or per sector – are not yet possible nor relevant.

To ensure the reliability, the accuracy and a recurrent updating of the carbon footprint assessment, 2050Today is advised by an international Carbon Footprint Scientific Committee.
