Greening the Blue ( has been nominated for 'Best Website' by the judges of the IVCA Clarion Awards.

The IVCA – the International Visual Communications Association - is a not-for-profit membership organization representing the creators and commissioners of multimedia projects for the corporate and public sectors. Each year, the organization hosts the prestigious Clarion Awards which celebrate communications that promote CSR, diversity, sustainability, community development and health issues in the public, social enterprise, charity and corporate sectors. Greening the Blue has been nominated under the ‘Websites’ category.

Greening the Blue was launched on World Environment Day 2010. The website was launched in response to the call from the Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon for all UN agencies, funds and programmes to become climate neutral and 'go green' and the site shows what’s been achieved, what’s happening next and how staff can get involved.

“We are delighted to hear the news and the recognition the website is receiving, and hope that it will spark further interest in supporting the movement for a more sustainable United Nations”, said Imogen Martineau, the consultant behind the project.

She continued, “Being nominated for a Clarion Award helps in promoting Greening the Blue further and highlights the importance and value behind maintaining excellence in communications on sustainability”.

The website has been developed on behalf of the Sustainable United Nations team, part of the United Nations Environment Programme and was designed and built by the digital agency Enable Interactive.
