World Environment Day 2023
Here at UKVending we take our environmental responsibilities extremely seriously. We are a member of the Rain Forest Alliance, and we do everything we can to reduce our impact on our immediate surroundings and those further away from our headquarters in Rochester. That is why we fully support the aims and ambitions of World Environment Day (WED) which is celebrated globally today.
World Environment Day (WED) is a day that stimulates awareness of the environment and enhances political attention and public action. June 5 was the day that United Nations Conference on the Human Environment began in 1972. The United Nations Conference on the Human Environment was from 5 until 16 June 1972. It was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1972.
The first World Environment Day occurred the following year. World Environment Day is hosted every year by a different city with a different theme and is commemorated with an international exposition in the week of 5 June. For example, the topic for 2007 was “Melting Ice – a Hot Topic?” while the topic for 2010 was “Many Species. One Planet. One Future.”
