    WCO celebrates World Environment Day

    世界海关组织庆祝世界环境日

    发布时间:2019-06-06 点击量:6 标签:世界海关组织 庆祝 世界环境日 打击各类环境犯罪 巴塞尔公约 绿色海关倡议 



    On 5 June 2019, the World Customs Organization (WCO) joins the international community, environmental organizations and other law enforcement partners in celebrating World Environment Day.

    World Environment Day aims to raise awareness on the environment and its ongoing degradation, as well as on other specific environmental issues. The theme for 2019 is “BeatAirPollution”, an apt theme considering the harmful impact that air pollution has on people and the environment.

    According to experts, by 2050 global climate change will pose serious dangers to humankind and there is a fair consensus that changing weather patterns and rising temperatures are linked to greenhouse gas emissions.

    Environmental degradation and diminished sustainability are associated with, amongst others, a loss in biodiversity, overexploitation of resources, changes in hydrological regimes, habitat alteration and loss, as well as pollution and associated climate change.

    Air pollution, in particular, is difficult to address as it knows no boundaries.  Open-air landfills, the burning of waste, emissions from agricultural and industrial processes as well as other anthropogenic practices lead to increasing levels of greenhouse gas emitted into the atmosphere. Such emissions are believed to contribute towards global warming, which, according to the majority of climate scientists, lead to climate change.

    “Across the globe, Customs administrations have a key role to play in stemming these threats by preventing the illegal trade in waste, chemicals, ozone depleting substances and persistent organic pollutants (POPs),” said Dr. Kunio Mikuriya, WCO Secretary General. “As a result, the WCO and its Members stand united in reiterating the commitment to safeguard the environment by effectively implementing the relevant Customs procedures and targeted enforcement initiatives,” he added. 

    In addition to air pollution, environmental threats that Customs has to tackle include the illegal wildlife and timber trade, as well as illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing (IUU). In the face of such a range of potential threats, partnerships are essential to successful mitigating actions.

    Together with its Members and Regional Intelligence Liaison Offices (RILOs), the WCO is coordinating global enforcement initiatives to stop illegal waste shipments, and is also working closely with its Green Customs Initiative partners at the Basel, Stockholm, and Rotterdam Conventions, as well as with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the Minamata Convention, to raise awareness on the value of international joint efforts and cooperation in order to address these pressing environmental concerns.

    To continue making a positive impact, the WCO s efforts in combating the illegal wildlife trade are supported by its International Consortium on Combatting Wildlife Crime (ICCWC) partners, namely the CITES Secretariat, INTERPOL, the UNODC and the World Bank. This partnership of key actors represents a long-term united front against the illegal wildlife trade, targeting all aspects of the value chain at both global and regional levels.

    The WCO INAMA Project also continues to implement tailor-made activities to strengthen the capacity of targeted Customs administrations in Sub-Saharan Africa and South East Asia, thanks to the support of key development partners.

    Environmental issues can seem daunting to tackle, but by acting together, the global community can help protect the environment, and subsequently the health of both our planet and its inhabitants. The WCO and the international Customs community remain unwavering in their efforts to combat all forms of environmental crime.
