World Environment Day 2022 #OnlyOneEarth


Celebrated globally every year on June 5th, World  Environment  Day  is  the  biggest  international  day  for  the  environment.

This year the campaign slogan is #OnlyOneEarth.

2022 is a historic milestone for the global environmental community. It marks 50 years since the 1972 United Nations Conference on the Human Environment, widely seen as the first international meeting on the environment. The 1972 Stockholm Conference spurred the formation of environment ministries and agencies around the world and kick-started a  host  of  new  global  agreements  to  collectively  protect  the  environment.  It  was  also  where  the  goals  of  poverty  alleviation and environmental protection became linked, paving the way for the Sustainable Development Goals. At the Stockholm Conference the idea of World Environment Day was formalised, with the first one being celebrated in 1974. “Only One Earth” was the slogan for the 1972 Conference; 50 years on, this truth still holds – this planet is our only home.

#OnlyOneEarth  advocates  for  transformative  environmental  change  on  a  global  scale.  The  campaign  shines  a  spotlight on climate change, biodiversity loss and pollution while encouraging everyone, everywhere to live in harmony with nature.

2022 is also a milestone year for Texon – marking 75 years of sustainable innovation.
