"UNEP is very pleased to see this Platform as an effort to assist with the implementation of the HESI initiative, which launched on the margins of the Rio+20 UN Conference on Sustainable Development in June 2012. The Platform provides an excellent mechanism for Universities to implement and monitor their sustainability commitments and performance. UNEP hopes to also promote the Platform through the Global Universities Partnership on Environment and Sustainability (GUPES)."
