Dear Tony, You say: "Are we leading the way in emissions reductions too? Where on the World Bank’s website can the public find details of its own carbon footprint, or at least that of its 238 environmental staff? The information is on the website, but you have to be a real sleuth[...]" I beg to disagree. It would seem that amid the bellows of the battle between traveling or not you did not try the search in the Bank's home page. Searching for "carbon footprint" results in a list, whose third and fifth entries link to documents providing information on the Bank's footprint. Specifically, the fifth entry (, a document of April 19, 2007, tells us about the Bank greening efforts. In fact, it was on June 5, 2006, World Environment Day, that the World Bank Group became carbon neutral. Love your blog
